We have secured an exciting JCT Design and Build contract for Chilmington Green, an exciting new development located on the east side of Ashford. In partnership with the Man Group, we’ll deliver 225 homes over the course of two phases, introducing 93 apartments and 132 houses.

Chilmington Green will deliver exceptional quality of build and finish, complimenting the award-winning garden city of Chilmington. Tenures will range from private sale, private rented, shared ownership sale and affordable rented homes. In fact, 85% of development will provide affordable homes for Ashford, including Key Worker and Shared Ownership schemes.

We are a lead contractor working in partnership with housing associations, councils and institutions to deliver a range of residential and commercial projects.


We believe that developments should provide accessible natural areas close to people’s homes, designed to complement the wider local landscape and linking up large, nature-rich open spaces with a network of green and blue corridors.

Our biodiversity principles guide us to deliver this primarily onsite where there is the biggest local community benefit, with the flexibility to deliver verifiable and tangible off site gains where on-site isn’t achievable.




Our dedication to social value delivery alongside our industry-leading focus on biodiversity and zero carbon, have resulted in us being widely accepted as being at the forefront of community creation in the UK.

We’re infrastructure led – and strive to create community owned and run facilities. Owned and run by the community, for the community
