Springfield Properties PLC is a family owned and run housebuilder building new homes on sites across Scotland.
Established in 1956, property development became a key activity in the early 1990s under the leadership of Sandy Adam, (Chairman, and grandson of the founder of Springfield). The move into construction came in 1998 triggering the first significant growth phase of the company.
Through the next decade the company grew steadily, building more homes each year in the North East of Scotland from its Elgin base. The negotiation through planning of Elgin South, which has provided Elgin with over 1100 new homes, private and affordable, and a mixed use community park was a major milestone.
By 2008 it had become clear that the company could only sustain growth through geographic expansion and Springfield began buying land in Central Scotland in the thick of the downturn. The company’s second significant growth phase was signalled in 2011 with the deal to take over the Scottish operations of Redrow comprising 831 plots over 8 sites in Central Scotland.
Today the company operates from its head office in Elgin and its Central Scotland office in Larbert. Springfield retains a directly employed workforce in the North and operates more widely with sub-contractors in Central. In the region of 400 people are employed on its projects at any one time and the company will build over 400 homes this year
With a down to earth, customer oriented approach the company builds each high quality home to suit the individual customer, a factor which strongly differentiates Springfield homes from competitors’ and adds value for customers.
Springfield delivers homes for a variety of tenures and works in partnership with registered social landlords and local authorities, building new homes on contract.
Currently operating at over twenty developments the company continues to grow steadily. Looking to the future Springfield has a number of developments at various stages in the planning process and is the lead developer on a major development in Perth zoned for 3500 homes and development partner at An Camas Mor, Aviemore, a major sustainable development in the Cairngorms National Park.
