About us

We were founded on the dual belief that it was impractical to meet housing requirements without an increased contribution from large sites and that it was possible to deliver high quality, locally endorsed and sustainable large sites. From private equity backed start up, to public company and now wholly owned by the Wellcome Trust, over the last 13 years, our business has delivered on this belief and become trusted as the leading Master Developer of large-scale Strategic Sites.
