About Alliance Homes Group

Since 2006 Alliance Homes Group have set about to achieve their mission of attaining stronger communities, building better homes, and creating a smarter business. This community-based social enterprise, within the West of England, aim to deliver services as efficiently and effectively as possible whilst continuing to reinvest in the homes and communities which they serve.

Currently owning around 6,500 properties and providing housing and housing related support to approximately 12,000 people, the Housing Association enlisted the help of Rivendell for 17 of their latest new-build properties.

Working With Alliance

Having discovered Rivendell whilst searching for local flooring companies online, Alliance chose to work with us due to our quick response, matching their particular requirements, and our extensive experience of working within the commercial sector.

For the initial consultation our founder Mandy Risso visited the site, providing a selection of samples to discuss ideas. Having previous experience in providing flooring solutions for housing associations meant that we understood their requirements very well and could constructively advise them on the most suitable products.

“We really like the face-to-face personal touch that Rivendell provided. The whole decision making process was really quick and easy thanks to Rivendell’s knowledge and experience”.

Following the on-site consultation, Alliance Homes Group decided to floor all of their new build properties with a hardwearing carpet that could easily be maintained and cleaned.


The fitting itself ran very smoothly. In fact, having been handed the keys and left to work our magic, we ensured that we kept to the time schedules set by Alliance Homes Group. With tenants already lined up and ready to move in, working efficiently and hitting deadlines was essential.

After the initial consultation, we felt we could trust Rivendell so we just handed them the keys. We contracted Rivendell to complete two of our sites because they offered a competitive price and could meet our timescales”.

During the fitting process the Rivendell team noticed that some of the doors needed to be sanded down so that they could open smoothly over the new carpet. Fortunately, our onsite team were able to offer an immediate solution for Alliance Homes Group in the form of our fully trained and experienced team who had the right equipment to quickly solve the issue.

The Result

After completion of the project. The Development Project Manager of Alliance Homes Group had the following to say:

“I would definitely recommend Rivendell to other housing associations. The best thing about Rivendell was the fact the whole process was hassle free. They kept us updated about what was happening with the whole process. As a housing association, we have lots to do in a short space of time so we don’t have time to chase the companies we work with but Rivendell just made it really quick and easy”.
