Our Purpose

Marshgate has been created to deliver well designed, high-quality developments for sale and rent.  Our target markets are landlords and open market buyers.

Our management team combine over 80 years construction experience across property development and the wider construction industry. Along with a significant network of relationships and connections, this has created a highly capable team focused on niche developments that are not of interest to larger players in the sector.

Our values

Safety, quality, value for money.

Number one for us is preventing harm to people or the environment.  We believe that whatever the specification of a development, workmanship should always be to the highest standard.  Design has a big influence on build-ability and ultimately quality.  All our developments are designed to achieve high-quality standards by maximising offsite fabrication and considering build-ability at all design stages.

Value for money comes from good design, delivered right first time.
