Taking responsibility

​Everyone has the opportunity to make a difference.

We have outlined ambitious plans as a responsible business, such as being operationally carbon net-zero by 2025 or investing in education and future skills. Each of our colleagues plays a key part in making these ambitions a reality.
This isn’t just lip service, it’s seen every day from introducing hedgehog highways to electric forklifts on site, or backing new apprentices - everyone has a chance to make a difference at St. Modwen.

Innovation nation

Join a team that never sits still

To stay ahead of the curve, we continue to invest in new ideas and technologies that help us stay attractive to customers and respond to environmental and market challenges.
Recent ideas include the launch of shell homes that people get to ‘self-finish’ themselves and ‘green’ concrete, a first by a UK housebuilder to reduce our carbon footprint.

Not too big, not too small

Established business, personal culture

We’re a great size because we’re big enough to grow, with policies, personal development and infrastructure in place, but small enough to know everyone and not get bogged down with red tape.

Health & safety at our core

The safety of our people & our communities is paramount

We’ve picked up several awards for our leading position in health & safety.
We say nothing is so important that it can’t be done safely, and we stand by that which means we regularly score very highly compared to the industry.

Customer, customer, customer

Highly recommended by our customers as well as our colleagues

Quite simply, we wouldn’t be where we are today without our focus on customers.
With one of the highest customer recommendation scores in the housebuilding industry, you don’t have to just take our word for it.
