Barratt Developments PLC
Barratt is the UK’s largest housebuilder by volume, creating great new places to live throughout Britain. We have been at the forefront of housing construction, building high quality homes for almost sixty years and since we began in 1958, we have built more than 430,000 new homes across England, Scotland and Wales.
We operate through our 6 regions and 27 operating divisions. We support 55,000 jobs across the country, contribute more than £3billion to the UK economy and support more than 12,000 supplier and sub-contractor companies.
Our vision is to lead the future of housebuilding by putting customers at the heart of everything we do. We are the only major housebuilder to retain a five-star customer satisfaction rating (above 90% customer recommendation) for eight consecutive years in the HBF Customer Satisfaction Survey.
One of our priorities is to create ‘great places’ by designing developments that not only look great, but are also a pleasure to live on and will enhance local communities for years to come. Great design is at the core of all our developments. We have developed our own, in-house, ‘Great Places’ design manual, which showcases Building for Life 12 principles and ensures great design on all of our schemes.
We have won more Building for Life 12 awards than any other housebuilder. Since 2014, we have delivered 51 developments that are BfL accredited and 14 of those attained the highest accolade of BfL ‘Outstanding’ having fulfilled all 12 of the urban design criteria.
