Berkeley Group builds beautiful, successful places, blending homes, parks and public realm with great facilities to create fantastic communities where people love to live. They work together with trusted partners to tackle the shortage of good quality homes. And they make a lasting contribution to the landscape and to the communities we help create. They have built 19,500 homes in the last five years, across London, Birmingham and the South of England.
Berkeley Group is made up of six autonomous companies: Berkeley Homes, St Edward, St George, St James, St Joseph and St William. They are publicly-owned and listed on the London Stock Exchange as a FTSE 100 company.
Berkeley's business strategy is called Our Vision. This focuses on five key areas: customers, homes, places, operations and people. Through this framework they are striving to become a world class business.
Sustainability is at the heart of Berkeley. Their single biggest contribution is to create new places that grace their surroundings and will stand the test of time. The environmental performance of each site is monitored tightly and we publish independent research measuring our social and economic impact.
The Berkeley Foundation was set up in 2011 by the Berkeley Group. So far it has committed over £14.9 million to over 100 charities and worthy causes. The Berkeley Foundation focuses on four key areas: homes, jobs, skills and care. Funding comes in a variety of ways: the Berkeley Group covers overhead costs; employees have so far raised over £5.3 million; supported by their consultants, subcontractors and supply chain.
