SWOT Analysis


1.  Robust and seamless website. IT is important when your client is an individual customer as opposed to say a big company

2. Quality of its end product is commendable; positive WOM about its properties doing the rounds in UK and Spain

4. Nearly 4000 employees form a part of the company’s workforce

5.  One of the most prominent construction companies in UK


1. Limited global geographical presence – the company does its operation only in the UK and select parts of Spain. There is a huge possibility of losing out on businesses due to the European slowdown and economic downturn

2. High final cost for its homes which means it is not affordable by many people in UK and Spain; It could also enter into the low end segment without affecting its brand equity


1.  There is a huge scope for expansion beyond UK and Spain; demand for house building is growing by the day, in developing countries like India which are slowly moving towards smarter homes

2. Opportunity to diversify into other sectors like industrial, plant building etc. Given that the company has the expertise, it shouldn’t be tough


1. Growing debt burden of European nations

2. Rising cost of construction material - Prices of other types of steel such as hot rolled plate and cold rolled coil have increased



1. Pulte Group, Inc.

2. Persimmon Plc

3. Barratt Developments Plc
