About us

I founded the Bride Hall Group in 1983 and for almost four decades we have worked through every phase of the economic cycle. We have developed in excess of 6 million square feet of quality office, commercial and retail space throughout the UK.

Successful partnerships have been enjoyed with over 200 landowners, government bodies and public and private organisations. Over 70 leading institutions have backed our schemes over the years.

Today we continue to assemble, refresh and asset manage our own portfolio with low leverage coupled with a strong focus on long-term fundamentals and intrinsic development upside. These solid foundations have ensured we have remained well-positioned to add to the portfolio throughout the cycles and even in these unprecedented times.

In 2014 I decided it was the right time for me to step back and two of my sons Nick and Nigel, who had both been working in the business for many years, were each gifted the ownership of one of the subsidiaries, Nick took over the reins of the property investment and management business now renamed Bride Hall Real Estate Partners (www.bridehallrealestate.co.uk) and Nigel took over the reins of the property trading arm Bride Hall Developments (www.bridehalldevelopments.co.uk)

Since then we have continued to work together, where possible, and Group has supported Bride Hall Developments on two major pre let office schemes in Peterborough both in excess of 100,000 sq ft . The first was handed over in 2019 and the second is now due for completion at the end of 2021. In addition we supported Bride Hall Real Estate Partners by making available key development management expertise in respect of the development of a 452 unit Student accommodation scheme and associated amenity building in Warwick.

I remain proud of Group’s longevity; track record and look forward to it continuing for many years to come
