Investing in people and places

Historically we have been involved in the development of over 100 sites, varying in size and complexity, to support businesses and to provide new homes. 

In total we have created nearly 17,000,000 sq ft, or the equivalent of around 260 football pitches, of high-quality spaces in which people live and work, including supporting entrepreneurs in growing their businesses.

2,000,000 sq. ft. of Office Space

In the last decade we have invested in developments with a Gross Development Value (GDV) in excess of £4 billion, focusing in the main on the regeneration of city centres and brownfield sites, as well as other strategically placed developments in the UK and overseas.

Our completed developments include numerous successful, iconic projects such as:
