About the group

About the group Banner.

Strong foundations

Our Group concentrates on infrastructure and groundworks, acquiring land, building sought after new developments, working in partnership with local authorities for affordable homes provision as well as delivering homes for the private rental sector (PRS).

We have very experienced people with the drive and ambition to deliver our long term goals. Our vision is to leave a legacy that our customers, employees, and local communities are proud of.

Investing for the future

We put our customers and clients at the centre of each company, working to understand their needs and aspirations, while developing solutions to meet those needs. To date we have delivered over 2,000 homes through Cameron Homes and Keon Homes and have had an involvement in a further 40,000 through Chasetown Civil Engineering, working with the major UK housebuilders. We are recognised by the House Builders Federation (HBF) as a five star housebuilder, an accolade voted for by our customers. 

More about our companies

We have a strong balance sheet and a resilient business. A financially prudent group, we re-invest our profits in growing our Group companies for the future with a focus on land and realising the potential of our people, our opportunities, and projects. We successfully develop long term partnerships with landowners, other house builders, suppliers and in particular, other family businesses.
