We are BEC

We Build Extraordinary Communities by reinvesting profits from our property portfolio to deliver lasting regeneration, low carbon and social outcomes that positively impact our communities.

We create developments with people in mind. From the smallest communities to society at large, we work hard to ensure that our impact is positive and our actions are ethical.  To do this, we support the local communities in which we operate, champion urban regeneration and provide inspiring places to work and live.

We’re committed to sustainable building practices and upholding a low carbon agenda.  It’s what we call our ‘Golden Thread’ – and it runs through everything we do.

Giving: BEC

Here at BEC we believe that we have a responsibility to contribute to the communities in which we operate. We take that responsibility seriously and expect our investors, partners and contractors to do the same.

We’re proud to operate a profit for purpose model, putting our profits to good use in our local area. But we do more than that. We raise money, we give our time and we use our skills and experience to lend a hand. From sponsoring local sports teams to inspiring communities to invest in green energy. We do what we can to make a difference.

We call it Giving: BEC.
