Meet The Team

Experience and knowledge

The wider team is proven at all levels of house building with complementary backgrounds from large quoted companies and major contractors to small private developers. This wealth of experience and team approach is critical to delivering exceptional homes.

We are backed by our parent company RO Group, and with access to their systems, research, contact base and ultimately the scale of their balance sheet places us in an advantageous position when competing with businesses of a similar size.

The RO Group

Based upon the founding principle that the company is ‘in business to do business’ this simple but direct approach has seen the RO Group thrive over the years through investment in a diverse range of interests, which continues to this day.
