The Berkeley Group build homes and neighbourhoods. We focus on creating beautiful, successful places in London and the South East. We work together with other people to tackle the shortage of good quality homes, and make a lasting contribution to the landscape and to the communities we help create.
The Berkeley Group is made up of five autonomous companies: St George, St James, St William, Berkeley and St Edward. We are publicly-owned and listed on the London Stock Exchange as a FTSE 250 company.
Berkeley's business strategy is called Our Vision. This focuses on five key areas: our customers, homes, places, operations and people. Through this framework we are striving to become a world class business.
Sustainability is at the heart of Berkeley. Our single biggest contribution is to create new places that grace their surroundings and will stand the test of time. The environmental performance of each site is monitored tightly and we publish independent research measuring our social and economic impact.
The Berkeley Group was voted Britain's Most Admired Company across all industries in 2011 and Housebuilder of the Year from 2010 to 2012. In 2014, we won the Queens Award for Enterprise, and have come top of the Next Generation benchmark for the last eight years, which ranks the UK's 25 biggest housebuilders on sustainability.
The Berkeley Foundation was set up in 2011 and supports young people and their communities across London and the South of England. So far it has committed over £5 million to over 60 charities. The Berkeley Group support this independent charity with funding and the time and talent of our staff.
