Alliance Homes

Steve Drew
Managing Director

Managing Director Alliance Venture, part of the Alliance Homes Group

Steve was appointed Director of Property and Asset Management in February 2006 following the large scale voluntary transfer of housing stock from North Somerset Council. He was appointed  Managing Director of Alliance Ventures in June 2012 on adoption of a group structure.


A RICS accredited Chartered Building Surveyor with 20 years experience in social housing management for both a Local Authority and Housing Association, Steve is also a member of the Institute of Directors and the Chief Building Surveyors Society (CBSS).

 

Steve’s vision and commitment to combating fuel poverty and reducing carbon emissions by AH housing stock saw the establishment of the first large-scale PV framework for the UK. He recognised the opportunity presented by FiT which led to an OJEU compliant framework accessed by 16 other landlords benefitting from economies of scale.  Since first installation in Spring 2011 the framework has delivered a total carbon saving of over 5,000 tonnes to April 2013.

 

Building on the relationships developed in PV, The Carbon Savings Alliance (CSA) consortium has recently been established to provide independent support to social landlords and local authorities in delivering energy efficiency and carbon reduction to its customers. CSA will offer landlords OJEU compliant contracts to ensure that full ECO energy grant can be transferred directly into tenants’ homes

 

The father of 3 sons, Steve is a keen fisherman and sportscar enthusiast.
