Local businessman Steff Wright takes us back to The Future …
STEFF Wright, CEO of Gusto Homes, has been a pioneer of smart living for over 30 years. He was one of the first people in the UK to drive an electric car and as a developer he has gone beyond building regulations to create homes that are future proofed.
Steff has become an industry leader and is revered within the sector as the expert on sustainable housing. He often cites ‘climate chaos’ as the main driver
of his obvious passion for his subject and lives and breathes what he believes, from his plant based diet, to his taking up residence in one of his own ‘eco’ homes at the Woodlands Edge development in Lincoln, living alongside the residents in the community he created.
“l believe that the future of house building lies in helping more people to embrace this changing environment and live in affordable, high-tech, green homes which are built to the very highest standards.
“At Gusto, ·we create housing developments that make and sustain communities. Rather than building green houses in isolation, we’re building whole neighbourhoods of homes that are economical to run (using passive solar energy or geothermal heat) and which are filled with the latest efficient and carbon cutting technology.”
Gusto’s latest development in Collingham, aptly named ‘The Future’, is the natural progression for a developer whose vision and commitment to sustainability started in earnest when he built one of the UK’s first ‘eco’ developments, Millennium Green, and such is his build ethic and quality that many of these ‘early adopters’ of the Gusto brand are now downsizing into their new Gusto retirement homes.
Steff Wright is not just a ‘builder’, Gusto is not just a ‘construction company’.
Steff is a pioneer, a visionary and a person of influence that we should all be listening to.
YOUR TECHNOLOGY OR PRODUCT AS PART OF THE FUTURE …
With sustainable living al the heart of everything Gusto does, The Home of The Future is an opportunity to show people what life in The Future could be like.
Since the 1950s when the World’s Fair started showing what homes of the future might look like and how they would work, the general interest has grown exponentially. ‘With ‘way out technology’ such as the first video phones exhibited during the 1960s we now take this for granted. It is fair to say that the vision of The Future now, in 2020, centres around the environmental crisis and future homes have to be built to deliver the ultimate in carbon neutral living by not only generating their own power but creating living spaces that will sustain future generations.
Gusto Homes is the most progressive developer of sustainable homes in the UK and is looking to collaborate with companies that have the same ethos, the same vision and the same dream; companies that are at the forefront of their sector, be it brewing, cleaning, plant based food or technology such as robotic vacuum cleaners and infrared saunas.
The Home of The Future will be fitted out with a wide range of environmentally sustainable products ,which people will use if they want to minimise their personal impact on the environment, whilst enjoying a luxurious and fantastic lifestyle.
To this end Gusto seeks to partner with like-minded businesses and is offering an amazing opportunity to local companies: “If you think your product and brand could sit in the Home of The Future, then we encourage you to get in touch with us and tell us why. If your product makes it into The Home of The Future you will be placed alongside other sector-leading brands and will be exposed to much PR and publicity as we will be inviting influential journalists and high-end tech and home publications to see the Home of The Future for themselves at a series of exclusive launch events throughout 2020.”
