Over the last ten years, the business has grown and evolved through a number of key stages.
Originally a private equity backed property start-up in 2009 focused on changing the strategic land market, we became a public company in 2014 through the reverse takeover of a commercial development business and then added Catesby in 2015. In 2021 we were acquired by the Wellcome Trust and delisted.
Throughout this evolution our values have remained the same and we continue to add more strategic sites, earn our stakeholders’ trust, deliver demonstrable quality and prove our fully scalable business model.
As the leading Master Developer, this puts us in a perfect position to identify and deliver further strategic sites in key growth locations.
Urban&Civic was acquired by the Wellcome Trust in January 2021 and delisted. The acquisition consolidated the position of Urban&Civic as the leading Master Developer in the UK.
