The Berkeley Group is a developer of residential-led, mixed-use schemes and is made up of six autonomous companies: Berkeley, St George, St James, St Edward, St William and St Joseph.
The Group focuses on creating successful, sustainable homes and places in London and the South of England. This begins with acquiring land in the right locations. We then develop schemes renowned for their quality, design, public realm, transport, open space, access to employment and amenities; all the things people look for in a place to live and that enable a community to thrive.
The developments we create range in size from under twenty homes to complex mixed-use urban regeneration schemes with over four thousand homes. The types of home we build include modern city apartments and traditional family homes, as well as student and senior living accommodation. Our mixed-use developments incorporate offices, retail units, leisure facilities, hotels and restaurants. We sell our homes and commercial space to a broad range of customers: private buyers; housing associations; shared-ownership buyers; universities; investors and commercial occupiers.
The Group’s business strategy is called Our Vision. Through Our Vision we aspire to be a modern, world-class business generating long-term value by creating successful, sustainable places where people aspire to live. Our Vision focuses on five key areas: Customers; Homes; Places; Operations; and Our People. By focusing on these areas, we ensure that we continue to provide customers with an exceptional service, whilst delivering high quality homes and places where communities can thrive. We also recognise that the skills, knowledge and dedication of our people, alongside the efficient management of our operations, are fundamental to the ongoing success of our business.
Sustainability is at the heart of the Berkeley Group. We aim to be world-class in the area of sustainability, both in terms of running our business efficiently and considerately and by developing sustainable places. We are committed to being a responsible business which thinks about the long-term. We seek to not only reduce negative impacts but to maximise the benefits our activities can bring to create a positive impact.
In 2014, we were awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Sustainable Development for the second time. This is the UK's highest accolade for business success and is held for a period of five years.
