Major housing developer Hill Group has set its sights on a large growth strategy for the South West.

The firm – most known for their work across the East and South East of England – are now expanding with a new Bristol office set to open and several recently announced schemes in the area. And they have ambitious plans.

They already have a pipeline of more than 6,500 new properties – with a £53m scheme announced just last week in Stevenage. And in regards to their South West plans they’ve requested to speak at the West England Development Conference to meet land owners, public sector owners and supply chain experts as they enter into the SW market.

Andy Hill, CEO of the Hill Group, said: “Yet again the business has delivered a very strong financial performance, leaving us extremely well placed to see further growth and profitability over the medium term. While the full impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the wider economy is not yet known, we have successfully stress-tested the financial resilience of the business in multiple scenarios and we are well capitalised with a robust balance sheet which is demonstrated by our auditors signing off our accounts during these uncertain times.”

“As a privately owned business we are not subject to the pressures and fluctuations of the stock market, so we can take a long term view at times like this and seize opportunities to build our pipeline and invest in growth areas. We are very much open for business, with several exciting partnerships in the pipeline and we are currently sourcing, and transacting on, new land opportunities.”

The firm posted a record turnover last year – seeing a 16% increase up to £583m – delivering around 1,800 new homes.
