Who we are
Since 1982, we have developed a proven track record of delivering high quality homes, built on time and to budget, whist ensuring that safety is at the forefront of our developments.
These values underpin the foundation of our company culture and because of this, we continue to be a name trusted by clients and homeowners alike.
Each of our projects is carefully planned and monitored with progress measured and benchmarked against our clients’ quality expectations.
Our company ethos also includes supporting the neighbourhoods in which we work. This ensures our developments not only provide high quality homes, but also facilitate social value in the wider community.
Structure of Organisation
Bugler Developments is family owned and our open communication style spans the entire organisation. As a group, we are invested in every stage of the project – from the overarching vision through to the finer details. Most of all, our highly experienced team understand that both accountability and approachability is essential to delivering a high-quality project, bespoke to each one of our clients.
We are also members of several procurement frameworks. Through these, we meet regularly to discuss and share best practice to ensure we continuously improve our approach in line with current industry trends and practices. These frameworks include:
Training and Apprenticeships
When working within the construction industry, no day is ever the same.
Every site offers a range of new and unique challenges, and we provide our team with the training and experience necessary to find creative solutions.
A career in construction is an exciting prospect as we work to investigate the various modern and alternative methods of construction to assist the UK in achieving its Net Zero Carbon by 2050 strategy.
Bugler Developments offers a range of training and development initiatives sourced from both our Head Office and our sites. As part of our social value innovations, we also facilitate various apprenticeship, training and work experience opportunities to meet the aspirations of our clients and their residents.
