Our history

Our expertise

Bovis Homes is experienced in all areas of property development. Unlike many other developers, we have the necessary in-house experience to see a project through from start to finish. From surveying and engineering to town planning and legal, we work on a variety of projects including private housing, partnership development and mixed use.

Operating from regional offices in the Midlands, the South West and the South East, but with a national presence, we can manage both small and large developments, with the expertise gained over many years as one of the UK's most successful housebuilders.

In total the Group, whose registered office is in Longfield, Kent, employs more than 500 staff, many of whom are specialists from a broad range of professions.


We are also specialists in regeneration schemes that are revitalising many of the UK's towns and cities. Working closely and in partnership with a wide range of housing associations, councils and other public sector agencies, we are providing affordable, quality homes, in sustainable, brownfield locations.
