We do innovation differently…

More than just technology

For us, innovation is much more than technology. We aim to embed creativity and fresh thinking into everything we do, providing real solutions to real problems – from how we could enhance the way we deliver services to our customers, to how we develop our neighbourhoods, improve our properties and support our people.

Our Approach

At Halton Housing, innovation must have a purpose – a business problem to solve or a customer need to meet and must add real value.  For us, innovation means thinking about how we can continuously shape a great customer experience at every touchpoint and how we can further improve the places in which our customers live. This may mean investing in new ground-breaking technology, trying new products and services, or engaging with leading academics and suppliers… but may also mean rethinking our processes, our operations or how we communicate with and listen to our customers.

Areas of Focus

To work on a balanced portfolio of projects to continuously improve the experience of our customers and to work on challenges the housing sector is facing. Our current projects focus on the following areas:

  • Energy
  • Environmental
  • Home Sensors
  • Assets &. Compliance
  • Data
  • People
  • Communications

How we do it

Everyone at Halton Housing has a role to play in innovation.

We collaborate with a wide range of stakeholders and partners from inside and outside the housing sector. We work with the government and with leading universities to conduct research. We also work with our key suppliers to help influence and shape new developments and with our customers to understand their needs now and in the future.  By working together, we can explore future solutions, capture ideas, and provide valuable insight into the challenges the sector is facing. We can also find new solutions and new ways of working to enhance the way we deliver our services and improve people’s lives.

We have run and supported exciting projects with the Sensor City Liverpoolthe Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), Loughborough University, Leeds Becket University and Informetis (previously Sony Corporation’s R&D Energy Division).
