About us

About Watkin Jones Group

At the Watkin Jones Group we specialise in creating and managing great places for people to live. Established in 1791 the company has more than 200 years of experience in bringing forward highquality developments.

Over the past two decades we have become a market leader in the purpose-built student accommodation sector. Our New Homes division has also delivered more than 80 residential developments, ranging from starter homes to executive housing and apartments.

We are now applying our development expertise to the growing ‘Build to Rent’ sector with our first developments already completed and occupied by residents in Leeds, Manchester and Sheffield, and further schemes under construction in Bournemouth, Reading, and Sutton.

About Fresh Property Group

Once completed, our BTR developments are managed by Fresh Property Group, who are part of The Watkin Jones Group. Our professional on-site management teams provide an exceptional level of customer service and are on hand to deal with any problems as soon as they arise. Regular social events are held, from movie nights, to BBQs, and cheese & wine-tasting evenings, to welcome new residents and encourage ongoing interaction amongst neighbours.

As a build to rent developer, Watkin Jones Group has a long term-commitment to Woking and the local community that is not typically associated with traditional housebuilders. The community is at the heart of Watkin Jones Groups’ build to rent projects, with areas of shared amenity space providing an area for residents to foster a sense of togetherness.
