Berkeley builds for everyone: from families to first-time buyers, students to older people and luxury living to affordable housing.
Their developments range in size from a few dozen homes near a market town to complex, mixed-use urban regeneration programmes with over five thousand dwellings. They build schools and stations alongside a mix of housing that ranges from riverside apartments to traditional homes designed in the local vernacular.
The Berkeley Group operates across London and the South of England. They work through six autonomous brands: St George, St James, St Edward, St William, St Joseph and Berkeley Homes. Part of their success has come from strategic partnerships and joint ventures with institutions such as the Prudential, National Grid and Thames Water.
Berkeley is currently building some of the best new communities in England, including the Royal Arsenal in Woolwich, Woodberry Down in Hackney and Kidbrooke Village in Greenwich, all of which will be home to more than 10,000 people.
Last year, the company supported more than 30,000 jobs and committed half a billion pounds to affordable housing and community facilities while contributing over £2.6 billion to the British economy – the equivalent of £32 for every person in the UK.
The Berkeley Group has also had more than 850 apprentices on its sites and offices over the last 18 months and is creating 519 acres of public realm and planting 9,500 trees across London and the South of England.
