Our capability:

Design & Build

We can assist you to convert your development dreams into reality throughout rigorous Design and Build solutions. We will assume full responsibility for the design and construction of your project and we will hand over to you a product which has been built to the highest quality, on time and to budget. We will work with you to identify opportunities to optimise the product and deliver the best value for money performance.

Land Included Development

For our clients who require a more comprehensive service involving a combined land, build and funding package, we are the perfect partner. Our extensive experience and capability in all aspects of the development process should makes us the contractor of choice for those looking for an holistic development package. Our expertise is not confined to housing but also includes Extra Care provision and commercial property.

Land Finding

On behalf of our select client base, we offer a bespoke site finding service. We will follow your brief precisely and through our extensive network of contacts will identify development land which will fulfil your requirements. We pride ourselves in our ability to unlock ‘off market’ land opportunities and our dogged determination enables us to secure sites which others deem too hard to handle.

Joint Venture Working

On occasions, both we and our clients identify development opportunities which require a collaborative approach to bring together all relevant expertise and resources essential to deliver a completed project where a sharing of risks and rewards is desirable. We have access to a wide range of funding products and we are able to operate under a variety of structures, some more formal than others, to create an environment in which our partnership will thrive and deliver maximum returns for the partners, yet balanced against a carefully managed risk profile.

A word from our clients...


Nigel Sedman
Director of Investment and Regeneration

“We are proud to be bringing forward the first development in Stockbridge Village in nearly a decade, and delivering the kind of high quality supported housing that offers a scarce and much needed lifeline for vulnerable people living in the community who want to continue to live independent lives”.


Yorkshire Housing

Linda Gray
Development Project Manager

“This development makes excellent use of the site of a disused building by providing good-quality homes families can afford in popular area. Over the last five years we’ve delivered nearly 400 new homes in Barnsley in a range of areas to meet different needs. We played a key role in the regeneration of New Lodge and have also delivered affordable homes in Penistone where there’s a real lack of lower cost housing options.”


The Guinness Partnership

Allan Ramsay
Development Director

“I’m really pleased work has begun on this important housing development. We’re making the best use of what was a disused site and I’m confident future buyers and tenants will be delighted by the family homes Forrest is building for us”.
