This year, Countryside celebrated 60 years since it was founded, in which time it has established itself as one of the UK’s leading housebuilders, specialising in building communities, not just houses. 2018 was an outstanding year of growth for Countryside: the 12 months to 30 September 2018 saw the Group become the UK’s fastest-growing listed homebuilder, exceeding the targets it set at the time of its IPO in 2016. A 27% uplift in completions led to adjusted revenue of £1,229.5m in 2018 – an increase of 20% on the previous year – with an adjusted operating profit increasing by 28% to £211.4m. Countryside continues to uphold its reputation for quality product, offering comprehensive customer service, while maintaining continued focus on health and safety processes. Countryside looks forward to building on this year’s prosperity, while continuing to cater to customer and local communities’ needs and creating Places People Love.
This award will focus not only on the design and quality of the properties built, but also on all aspects of the developer’s performance.
