About Berkeley

​The Berkeley Group was established in 1976 by Tony Pidgley CBE and Jim Farrer. Based in Weybridge, Surrey, the company initially focused on the construction of single homes and executive developments.

As the company expanded, Berkeley established regional business in Kent, Hampshire, North London and Sussex. These divisions were granted a high degree of autonomy to ensure that the entrepreneurial spirit of the business was not lost as the company grew. This devolved business structure has continued to be at the heart of Berkeley's business strategy ever since.

During the early 1990's, Berkeley determined to focus its skills and expertise on complex brownfield sites in towns and cities throughout the country.

The Group swiftly gained a reputation for its innovative approach to urban regeneration, focusing on mixed-use developments and the creation of sustainable communities.

Today, The Berkeley Group is a leader in the business of urban regeneration, with a target to build over 95% of its development on brownfield land. Its talented and experienced management team consistently demonstrate the vision and flair to develop attractive and sustainable communities for its customers while extracting high value from the land it develops.

Berkeley Group builds homes and neighbourhoods across London, Birmingham and the South of England. They specialise in brownfield regeneration, reviving underused land to create unique, sustainable and nature-rich places where communities thrive and people of all ages and backgrounds can enjoy a great quality of life.

The Berkeley Group have won numerous awards over the years. They won House Builder of The Year at The Building Awards 2023. They also recently won Silver in the Best Large Housebuilder category at the WhatHouse? Awards 2023.

The Berkeley Group comprises of six market leading brands; Berkeley, St George, St James, St Joseph, St Edward and St William.

It has its own charity, The Berkely Foundation which was established in 2011. It supports organisations, young people and communities to have a positive impact in the areas where Berkeley Group works. Over the last ten years, the Berkeley Foundation and its partners have worked with over 33,000 people across London, Birmingham and the South of England – supporting them to develop new skills, move into work, improve their physical and mental health, and move out of homelessness.

Award Comments
Berkeley Group continually bangs the drum for brownfield development and quite rightly too, for the work that the industry does, with Berkeley to the fore, in unlocking complicated, challenging sites to regenerate urban areas is so often overlooked, not to mention all the affordable housing provision and community infrastructure that comes with them, driving economic growth and delivering sustainable neighbourhoods and public infrastructure.

The range of its homes and the scale of Berkeley’s ambition and ceaseless desire to drive standards and find solutions, however complex the problems, remains hugely impressive, year-in year-out.

Why Choose Berkeley?

Designed for life

At Berkeley we are committed to creating great places where people love to live, work and relax. Where the homes are light-filled, adaptable and finished to very high standards. Where carefully planned public areas enhance well-being and quality of life for residents and visitors. Where people feel a sense of community.

Customers drive all our decisions

We achieve that by putting our customers at the heart of everything we do. First, we strive to understand what our customers want and need -well- built homes, in a pleasant and safe neighbourhood, with plenty of amenities and good transport connections. Then we apply that understanding to all our planning and design decisions.

And for every new development, we challenge ourselves to go further, to improve and innovate, ensuring we satisfy the real needs of our customers in inspiring and sustainable ways.

Commitment to the future

When we plan a development, we take a long-term view of how the community we create can thrive in years to come. Our aim is to permanently enhance the neighbourhoods in which they are located, though intelligent design, quality landscaping, sympathetic architecture or restoration, and high standards of sustainability. We don't just build for today; we build for the future too.

Quality first to last

Quality is the defining characteristic of Berkeley developments, right down to the very last detail. We choose our locations, style of homes, construction practices, materials and specifications with great care. When you buy a new home from Berkeley you can be safe in the knowledge that it is built to high standards of design and quality, has low environmental impact and that you will receive a professional, efficient and helpful service from us. For extra peace of mind, all new properties come with a 10-year build warranty.

Choice and diversity

No two Berkeley customers are the same, so we aim to offer a wide choice of property location, size and type. From central London to major towns and cities; from market towns to rural villages, countryside to the coast - we build in locations our customers love. And whatever home you are looking for, whether that's a city penthouse, a modern studio apartment or traditional family home, you will find the perfect fit for your lifestyle.

Green Living

For Berkeley, sustainability isn't simply the latest buzzword. We are committed to creating a better environment within our developments and in the areas that surround them. That's why we build on brownfield sites whenever we can, bringing new life to disused and unloved spaces. We take care to protect the natural environment and enhance biodiversity. All our homes are designed to reduce water and energy consumption, and to enable residents to recycle waste.
