Our purpose

Home is where love resides, memories are created, friends and family belong and laughter never ends

We don’t just design homes, we create a place for you to call home

A great home isn’t just about what’s inside, it’s about the people and space around it that make it a truly great place to live. Our purpose when it comes to designing our developments, we don’t just think about the homes we build, we think about the surrounding landscapes, as well as the facilities that will help enhance communities and their way of life.

Our purpose - Kingsgrove For a house to be successful, the objects in it must communicate with one another – Andree Putman

“As part of our purpose to change places and create better futures, it’s so important for us to get involved with the communities we work in and support local projects”

Dave Smith, Managing Director at St. Modwen Homes

Bringing purpose to life Our customers are the heart of all our design decisions

Creating better futures

We are focused on innovation and the future potential of our communities. We use the latest technology, materials, construction methods and energy sources. As a result, we can ensure that we are doing the best for you, our customers, as well as the environment.

When it comes to designing and building our developments, we consider the social and human impact of our work by creating much needed affordable homes, employment and entrepreneurial opportunities. With top-class design and interiors guaranteed, we’re able to concentrate on other things that we know matter to homebuyers, including security, local amenities, work, educational opportunities, public transport and access to green space.

Building a community for families A comfortable house is a great source of happiness. It ranks immediately after health and a good conscience – Sydney Smith

We turn spaces into places that allow generations of people, communities and businesses to thrive.

When it comes to planning our developments, design is at the forefront of our minds. From safe child-friendly streets and attractive streetscapes, to public and private spaces – everything is taken into consideration.

From the design of our houses to the palette of building materials we use, we take special pride in building homes that are suited to the area in which we build and its heritage.

A house is much more than a mere shelter, it should lift us emotionally and spiritually – John Saladino

Our purpose in action

Best of city and rural living Cofton Grange is part of St. Modwen’s £1bn regeneration of Longbridge in South Birmingham, the former home of MG Rover.

Sustainability is top of the list of priorities. The latest phase of over 300 homes offers a mix of modern styles and sizes in an attractive development with immediate access to green spaces. Carefully landscaped, the scheme benefits from shared open spaces, charging points, and a brand new community centre.


Cofton Grange previously won Best Regeneration Initiative at the National Housebuilder Awards. The success of Cofton Grange is best reflected in the feedback from customers who benefit from the environment we have created and the community it has become.
