Manchester-based and with a focus on the Greater Manchester area, Generation are property developers.
We don’t work to a template. Just as every opportunity is unique, we tailor each development scheme to fit giving a bespoke solution.
We can be relied upon and like to make good things happen. We take pride in doing a job well. As well as believing that this is ‘the right way’ to do development, we know that it also generates more value.
We believe that great development enhances the lives of those that use it and are impacted by it; that it responds both to its local context and the market; and that it is about more than just buildings, also delivering wider environmental, social and economic benefits.
At the core of our approach to delivering this are the following values:
We study the changing nature of cities and markets, combining our insight with the latest innovative ideas.
For Generation, good design is not just about how a place looks and feels, it is about how it works.
Our approach is based on partnership and collaboration, preferring to work with rather than against others. Not only does this deliver more, but it is also just a nicer way to work.
