A commitment to acquire land selectively, build sensitively and sustainably and set benchmarked standards of quality

The Highwood team has a wealth of experience in acquisition, planning and development and, together, we’re doing amazing things with property. Our teams of property professionals are experts in their fields, from acquisition and planning to surveying, project management and other specialist construction services.

We’re proud to be led by a respected founding team of property experts whose drive and integrity has taken us from our inception in 1987 to the award-winning company we are today. Our inclusion on the 22ndannual Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100 league table in 2018 marked the culmination of our accomplishments last year and the recognition we’ve achieved within this fast-paced industry. In 2019, when we reached our turnover target of £100 million, we received the news that we had been ranked 34th in the 20th annual Sunday Times BDO Profit Track 100, which is a fitting testament to our strong growth and the efforts of our entire team. Our most recent accolade has seen us crowned Housebuilder of the Year at the 2019 South Coast Property Awards and marks our ascendancy over the regional property market. This is all success that’s built on quality and measured by reputation.

Put the names to the faces and meet the team.
