About St. Modwen

Changing places. Creating better futures.

St. Modwen is about transformation through better environments. 

Our history and expertise is bedded in the regeneration and renewal of spaces; taking on the challenges that others cannot and breathing life into places to create new and better opportunities; and adapting to changing times.

We seek to improve and enhance – with tangible and intangible benefits. Our aim is to ensure that what we create is appropriate and lasting. We think long term and deliver.

We transform, optimise and improve, turning spaces into places that benefit the people who live and work there. Our purpose is to give new meaning to those communities and environments we develop.

Kingsgrove Community Hall
Operation & Management

As part of the neighbourhood centre, St. Modwen will deliver a community hall, which will be for use as a multi-use community building.

A workshop was held for those interested in operating the community hall to discuss the latest design iteration, which has evolved from the agreed Neighbourhood Brief, and to inform EOIs.

St. Modwen invests in education at Kingsgrove

St. Modwen invests in education at Kingsgrove

St. Modwen is investing in the long-term future of the local community by supporting and working with King Alfred's Academy to encourage students to consider career opportunities within the Construction and Development industry including funding for a Careers Day and Skills workshop at the local leisure centre, as well as attending and meeting students to talk about career opportunities in the industry. 

Dinny Shaw, Planning Manger for St. Modwen who attended the careers event said:

We talked about what we do as a company and career opportunities within the Construction and Development Industry. It was a fantastic experience - really great to meet all the students and understand what sort of things they are interested in and to give them advice on what opportunities are available to them."

Sue Cronin, Careers and Work Experience Manager at King Alfred’s academy, said: 

“St Modwen has actively supported King Alfred’s since moving into the locality with various projects such as financially supporting the Careers Day as well as participating in the  careers convention, funding PPE equipment for our students so that they can safely access work placements, offering exciting work placements across various sectors from business planning in their London offices to local opportunities on site such as Civil Engineering."
