    Our Purpose

    We believe that thriving cities with the best, most sustainable futures are those that are culturally vibrant, equal and environmentally-conscious. This is why we’re committed to investing in these areas and where our expertise and passion can make the most impact.

    • Sustainability

      From restoring unloved buildings and reducing waste to shaping and delivering green city strategies, sustainability has always been at the forefront of our business. As the first commercial property partner to join the Net Zero Carbon Commitment with the UK Green Building Council, we're actively working towards a net zero carbon future for 2030.

    • A more equal society

      When developing our communities, we pursue local partnerships which focus on harnessing talent and creating equal working opportunities for people from all different backgrounds. Doing this internally is just part of the picture — we also help our customers to create diverse workforces and benefit the community by growing in a socially-responsible way.

    • Cultural vibrancy

      Collaborating with artists, creators and organisations is the key to showcasing the local culture  within our spaces, whilst also supporting them to add to the richness of our cities and communities. From art displays to events, these collaborations bring about opportunities for networking, creative innovation and new cultural experiences for our customers.

    Bruntwood history

    Family owned for 40+ years

    Over 40 years ago, we started out with the vision of transforming unloved buildings for commercial use, whilst retaining the original character and value that once made them special. This core vision still remains true to this day, but we’ve since evolved to create vibrant communities and campuses that help businesses grow.
