We have been building homes for more than 50 years. In that time we have grown to become one of the nation’s largest housebuilders with more than 6,000 direct employees and 27 divisions throughout Britain.

Our vision is to lead the future of housebuilding by putting customers at the heart of everything we do.

We build developments nationwide, from Aberdeen to Plymouth, helping to meet housing demand in towns, cities and rural areas. We provide high quality, value for money homes for all market sectors, plus homes for rent and shared ownership, and are leaders in brownfield development and urban regeneration.

We operate under two strong national brands for house building – Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes. We also have strong regional brands – Ward Homes - operating in Kent and the South East and Barratt London.

Our commercial property development business, Wilson Bowden Developments, is focused on retail, leisure, office, industrial and mixed-use schemes.
