Built for Good is a ‘for purpose’ business. In other words it is a business that exists for the primary reason to improve social and environmental objectives.
But the ‘Who WE are’ heading here is a bit misleading. Built for Good is actually just one person, Karen Deegan, who has more than 20 years’ experience in architecture, social and environmental sustainability and property development.
She is hardwired to constantly think about how housing can be better, better for people, communities, environment and local economies. With a natural instinct to be able to bring ‘first of its kind’ projects to life, she can come across as a bit of a fan forced optimist. But with a serving of freshly brewed coffee she comes back down to earth and can give a realistic way forward for any set of far reaching objectives.
