Bovis Lend Lease

One of Britain’s oldest building companies; Bovis Lend Lease was founded by Charles William Bovis in Marylebone, London in 1885. Today it’s a global business, ranked among the world’s top ten construction and project companies with 7,000 staff and 20 billion plus of projects in 40 countries.

The early years saw Bovis building some of London’s first cinemas and many of the large stores and smaller shops that still occupy the east side of London’s Regent Street. This retail experience was put to good use when Bovis started working for Marks & Spencer in 1926.

It was to prove an enduring relationship and, in its client-focused approach, it was the foundation on which the modern Bovis Lend Lease business is built. By sharing its clients’ goals, by really understanding their business and by offering solutions not excuses, the company has gone on to establish other long and close working relationships across many of the industry’s major sectors.

It’s an approach that finds favour with like-minded clients who want to share in pushing forward the skills, techniques and sciences of modern construction and project delivery. This progress is also aided by the international diversity of the modern Bovis Lend Lease business and its broad client base which together contribute to the pool of knowledge and experience available to clients across the globe.

The proof that this client-centric approach delivers what it promises is evident in some of Europe’s biggest and most demanding construction projects. London’s Broadgate and Canary Wharf office developments, Bluewater, Europe’s largest retail and leisure complex, Disneyland Paris and Terra Mitica, Europe’s biggest theme parks are all Bovis Lend Lease projects.
