Our Product Range

Our diverse property portfolio meets the needs of a wide range of purchasers from first-time buyers, to families and investors. We offer a bespoke product range from one-bed apartments up to five-bed detached houses, each carefully designed and delivered to the highest quality for our customers.

Our Structure

The core operations of our Group are focused on the southern half of the UK. This geographic spread, combined with our approach to high-quality well-designed homes and our healthy land pipeline, provides us with a distinctive position among the listed house builders.

To build successful and sustainable developments it’s important we’re attuned to the needs of existing communities and their surroundings. Our regional delivery model, together with our skills and expertise, ensures we remain sensitive and responsive to local needs.

We operate through 5 housebuilding divisions. Two further business units complement the regional divisions and provide specialist skills:

Crest Nicholson Regeneration (Major Projects), which specialises in large-scale developments with public and private partners, incorporating residential and mixed use projects.

Crest Strategic Projects (Strategic Land), which sources unallocated sites and secures valuable planning permissions over time for medium to long-term development to be delivered through our divisions.

Our delivery divisions are supported by central functions, which help to support and drive consistent performance across the business.
