Stoford, one of the UK’s leading property specialists, is a privately owned company with all the shareholders fully employed by the business. It was founded in 1996 to focus on occupier led pre-let commercial property developments in the Midlands.
Since then, the company has grown significantly and has completed commercial developments totalling over 12 million sq ft with a value of over £1 billion across a diverse range of sectors throughout the UK. Our portfolio includes industrial and distribution warehousing sites, production plants, business parks, offices, retail schemes and hotels.
We have a successful track record of major development and regeneration projects and enjoy a close working relationship with many city and town councils, planning authorities, regional development agencies, land owners and joint venture partners.
We are proud to have developed for some of the UK’s largest occupiers and financial institutions including Severn Trent Water, Npower, Admiral Insurance, Tesco, The Co-operative, Standard Life, Axa, LaSalle, BlackRock and GE, together with Government Departments such as HMRC, DSA, DEFRA and The Home Office.
Our innovative approach to site and contract procurement ensures that we are highly competitive and able to deliver a quality project on time and to budget.
Over the past few years we have had some significant success and won the Estates Gazette Midlands ‘Property Developer of the Year’ award for three consecutive years and the Insider Property Awards ‘Property Developer of the Year 2011’. In the 2015 RICS Awards Stoford won the Commercial Categories for both the Wales and South West regions for two separate schemes, and Overall Project of the Year for our Admiral Insurance Group development in Wales. Recently we were the South West of England, Thames Valley and South Wales regional winner in the BCO Awards 2016 category ‘Corporate Workplace’ also for our Admiral Insurance Group development.
