The communities we help grow are as important to us as the homes we build. That ethos, combined with classical design cues taken from our Victorian Heritage, help us create your forever home.
1880, A year of firsts
From the first degrees for women from the University of London, to the introduction of Greenwich mean time, and the inaugural game of test cricket… they have all became part of the fabric of British culture since 1880.
So too did the tradition of excellence and craftsmanship established by the first homes built by William Kendrick. Against a vibrant background of change and growth, he laid the foundations that we stand on to this day.
Today the fifth and sixth generations continue to guide the company from their head office in Stourbridge, West Midlands, proud to see the founder’s principles of quality craftsmanship still demonstrated in the work of Kendrick Homes.
More than new homes
We take our sustainability commitment seriously and are continually looking for ways to reduce our impact on the environment. Since 2021, we have contributed over £5.5 million to local communities, here’s how some of that money was spent –
Sports, leisure and recreational
Funding and support to aid in the development of grassroots sport in England such as local sport and school programs.
Transport & highways
The highways agency allocates a proportion of the total funding to three elements, roads, bridges and lighting elements.
Funding towards social rented, affordable rented and intermediate housing provided to specified eligible households whose needs are not met by the geneal housing market, in additon to the affordable homes we build on our developments.
We Help Nature Grow Every Time We Build
Dedicating 10 new trees planted by the National Forest for every home we construct. Strengthening woodland habitats to help wildlife flourish and bring people joy.
Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)
The Community Infrastructure Levy is a charge which can be levied by local authorities on a new development in their area. It is an important tool for local authorities. The levy can be used to fund a wide range of infrastructure, including transport, flood defences, schools, hospitals, and other health and social care facilities
Funding can be split between overall running costs, salaries or larger capital funding which is for School building infrastructure.
Charity is close to our heart, it’s vital for us to make a difference in any way that we can.
Each year, we donate money to charities with a personal link to us. We donate to charities who have touched our lives at some point or due to our interests outside of work. We recognise that charities do valuable work, and our donations help them deliver essential local services and life-saving activities.
Since 2016, we’ve donated over…
