Think of us as property managers and developers with a difference

About BEC

Property managers and developers with a difference

Whether we’re renovating a building, supporting projects in the community, or helping to regenerate an entire town, we keep sustainable building and a low carbon agenda front of mind. That’s our ‘Golden Thread’ and it runs through everything we do.   

We combine our knowledge in the arena of sustainable development with a responsible business approach and a drive to build extraordinary communities and deliver valuable local regeneration.

By working in partnership with local and national stakeholders to support projects that will bring sustained transformation, we are often able to take on undervalued sites that require strategic and creative thinking to turn them into viable developments.

Crucially, we’re not just about construction. We also own and operate business parks and commercial premises across Cumbria, creating spaces that inspire people in their working day and drive growth in organisations from start-ups to major international companies.


buildings, places

We use our skills, ideas and creativity to enhance the places we live, work and play in stimulating a diverse local economy that promotes enterprise and creates new employment opportunities.



The impact of our developments is felt most in the communities in which they sit, we create long-lasting social value by supporting and engaging those communities.



By reducing and managing our impact and safeguarding the assets in our care, our assets and activities can work harmoniously with the built, natural and historic environments that surround them
