Crest Nicholson is a leading developer with a history of creating well-designed sustainable communities for over 55 years. We are proud to have highly-regarded capability for delivering developments of varying size and scale.
We operate through five regional house building divisions. In addition, a centralised specialist Partnerships & Strategic Land division (CNPSL), provides core competencies in working in partnership, a multi-channel approach and strategic land.
Working in partnership enables the business to collaboratively acquire land to be developed jointly. Our partners include Homes England, the Defence Infrastructure Organisation, housing associations and financial institutions. Participating in the well capitalised investment market provides an opportunity to increase the overall number of homes delivered by achieving a higher pre-sold position.
Crest Nicholson have earned a reputation for outstanding planning promotion work. The combination of planning expertise, considered early investment and award winning placemaking, helps Crest Nicholson be a developer of choice for land owners and local authorities. Our dedicated CNPSL team manages relationships with Registered Providers and the Private Rented Sector providers (PRS), linking our large land portfolio to different sectors and buyers, and developing leads with new buyers in the maturing PRS market where we seek to be partner of choice.
Our divisional structure enables us to develop local insight and relationships. Our strategy blends this regional experience with a disciplined and consistent approach to design, specification and execution across the Group.
Our divisions are supported by a number of central functions, which help to support and drive consistent performance across the business.
In October 2021, the Group announced a growth strategy by geographical expansion. The first two new divisions are Yorkshire and East Anglia, and the third division will be announced in 2023.
Crest Nicholson seeks to balance strategic objectives with responsibilities to the environment and wider society in decision making – remaining a robust and resilient business to deliver sustainable long-term value for our stakeholders while creating a social and environmental legacy to be proud of.
