The first Barratt property development company was established in Newcastle upon Tyne and grew the business steadily, laying the foundation for the growth that followed. We were listed on the London Stock Exchange in 1968. In 1972, a programme of rapid expansion followed, seeing a series of acquisitions and the creation of new companies. During the 1990s the Barratt Group grew organically, establishing an unrivalled track record of consistent growth. In April 2007, Barratt acquired Wilson Bowden PLC and today has a network of 27 housebuilding divisions throughout Britain, selling new build homes under the Barratt, David Wilson and Ward Homes brands.

At RMD Kwikform we have a complete understanding of the construction supply chain and the impact each link of the chain can have on the overall project. We therefore work in partnership with our customers – and even their customers, to ensure everything possible can be done to maintain the smooth running of a project. We also understand the ever-increasing complexity of projects, tightness of timescales and the need to ensure stringent health and safety levels are maintained at all times. At RMD Kwikform we never try and over-complicate a situation – we have the knowledge and dedication to deliver solutions that are the most functionally efficient, cost effective and safety conscious for our customers.
Our team of 160 people combines architects, building surveyors, quantity surveyors, electrical, mechanical and environmental engineers, project managers and health and safety specialists. Their shared expertise and our collaborative culture, combined with the latest technology, enable us to offer dynamic solutions and value for money. For each project, we build a bespoke team around our client to deliver the exact knowledge and expertise they need.
Our purpose when it comes to designing our developments is not just thinking about the homes we build, but thinking about the surrounding landscapes, as well as the facilities that will help enhance communities and their way of life.
