Crest Nicholson has been building new homes for over four decades and is firmly established as a leading developer with a passion for not just building homes, but creating vibrant sustainable communities. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for individuals and communities, both now and in the future, by providing better homes, work places, retail and leisure spaces. Most importantly, we place our customers at the heart of everything we do.
Our development portfolio ranges from contemporary city centre apartments and townhouses to traditional detached family homes and complex regeneration schemes. The success of long term partnership developments such as Park Central in Birmingham, as well as innovative low carbon developments including One Brighton, ICON and Avante, underline the Group's determination to lead the industry in its quest to create innovative development solutions which positively contribute towards achieving a sustainable future.
In today's low carbon world, it is our unrivalled vision and values in design, customer service, innovation and environmental stewardship that set us apart. Responding to the challenges posed by climate change and urban renewal forms an integral part of our approach, positioning us well to lead in the complex and challenging process of delivering sustainable communities.
I am particularly proud of the recognition that we have achieved for our contribution to the built environment. To be bestowed with The Queens Award for Enterprise in Sustainable Development is a real honour and proof of our continued commitment to producing high quality developments that champion the very best principles in sustainability and design. It demonstrates our unquestionable passion in delivering communities where people genuinely want to live, work and play.
Ultimately however, the greatest accolade comes directly from our purchasers and nine out of ten have said that they would be happy to recommend Crest Nicholson to a friend. While both the House Builders Federation and our own independent consultants verify that our customer satisfaction is improving year on year, we will not become complacent. Our priority is to continue to build on this track record and deliver our customers with a home and level of service that continues to surpass expectations.
