Since its formation, Whiteoak Developments Limited has established a reputation as a house-builder specialising in prestigious developments, catering for the discerning buyer. Whiteoak is a family-run private company with day-to-day control and attention to detail being exercised by its original founder. This ensures continuity of their philosophy and a steady pattern of growth. The company capitalised on these initial assets by prudent land acquisition in the tough economic conditions of the early 1990’s. Tight family control of company direction and strict adherence to the company ethos ensured the continuance of growth throughout this difficult period. Turnover increased but not at the expense of company beliefs; that of offering the best quality at competitive prices. Rewards have been ploughed back time and again and have created a flexible, low-geared vehicle. Whiteoak’s most notable projects to date were Duke’s Quay and Pacific Heights, at Sovereign Harbour North, Eastbourne in Sussex. These developments of 142 and 137 waterside homes respectively, filled niches in the local market and permitted Whiteoak to out-perform national developers in terms of their own sales targets, by giving purchasers great value for money. Whiteoak Developments Limited were recognised by the Sunday Times and PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as one of the ‘100 Fastest Growing Companies in the UK’. Their plans for the future are to secure more high quality development sites in the South-east. Currently they have a variety of projects underway in Surrey and West Sussex. These range from large apartments in towns with excellent amenities and services to substantial executive homes in the stock-broker belt. Whilst Whiteoak moves on, the philosophy remains the same; that immediately recognizable quality and perceivable value are the fundamental elements of the properties they create.
