Who we are

We are a family owned multi-disciplinary construction and property development business with an enviable track record spanning four decades in creating high quality new build homes throughout London and the South East.

The first Bugler Group Company, Bugler Developments was founded by Tom Bugler in 1982 to develop homes for private sale. Affordable Housing construction soon became a speciality and in 2001, Bugler Homes was founded to distinguish between our private house building work and Housing Association contracting. A parent company, Bugler Holdings was formed to unite the organisations.

Significant success and growth resulted from the new structure and in 2016 along with an exciting re-brand and the addition of Bugler Land, the Bugler Group was formed.

In 2017, the Group moved into the prestigious offices at 25 High Street in Rickmansworth allowing room for further growth and providing an excellent environment for staff and visitors.

The most recent chapter of the Bugler story is the formation of Bugler Living, which is the Group’s response to the buoyant Private Rental market.



At Bugler, our mission is to build high quality, well-designed homes and continue to be a name trusted by clients and homebuyers alike.

Our values underpin our reputation and enable us to achieve our mission. They govern how we think, operate and behave towards each other, our partners and customers.
They are what makes us proud to be Bugler and ensure we make every new home and community we create a great P L A C E to live.


We enjoy excellent working relationships and encourage teamwork at every level.

Chief Executive Statement

The Audited Accounts have now been finalised across the Group and I am delighted to report that we achieved a strong set of results for the financial year ending 31st March 2023.

We continued to successfully run all aspects of the business without any borrowing or Third-Party Funding and remained in a very strong financial position with regard to cash-flow and solvency (our cash in the bank now stands at circa £25M and retained profit at circa £28M). We made several key appointments throughout our team – we now have over 100 employees – and this has enabled us to plan for the future growth and success of the Group. 

The year saw our turnover remain stable at circa £83M and despite the many challenges facing the construction industry, we managed to achieve a pre-tax profit of circa £4M which was a great achievement.   Furthermore, we were delighted to secure several new opportunities for both trading companies, which we anticipate will lead to a successful set of results in the current and forthcoming financial years. 

Our contracting company, Bugler Developments, enjoyed another good year financially.  We set ourselves an ambitious target in terms of turnover and profitability and despite not quite achieving the projected turnover, the profits for the year were beyond expectations.  More importantly, many new construction projects were secured throughout the year which has provided sufficient workload for this financial year and beyond.

Our development company, Bugler Homes, also enjoyed a good year with the sale of our site at Hayes End Road, Hayes having gained planning permission.  The year also saw us commence the construction of our development of luxury apartments in Oxhey, Hertfordshire which we anticipate yielding profit in the current financial year.  We were also very active from a land acquisition perspective with the purchase of sites in Rickmansworth and Hemel Hempstead, as well as entering into a number of long term subject to planning and promote deals throughout the northern home counties which we anticipate will secure a strong future pipeline of work.

Bugler Land continued to support both trading companies on the understanding that all land activity would ultimately be channelled and purchased via Bugler Homes.  That said, land remained a key part of our activity, whether acquiring land for future private development via Homes or by way of introduction to our clients in order to secure build contracts and/or joint venture opportunities.

Further to our launch of the Bugler Foundation in early 2018, we were able to continue to offer financial support to several great causes throughout the year.  As well as sponsoring local community sports clubs such as Hemel Hempstead Youth FC, we were delighted to offer our financial support to a wide range of charities including; Signpost, Watford Football Club Community Sports and Education Trust, Citizens Advice Watford, The Blue Tangerine Federation, the London Irish Centre and Newham Council’s Christmas Aid Appeal.  As we have committed to allocate 2% of the Group’s annual pre-tax profits to the Foundation, the financial success of the Group in the financial year means we have secured a large pool of additional funds to donate in the current year.

The above summarises what was a great year for the Group, which further cements our strong financial position and enables us to plan for more sustained growth and success.  We anticipate reporting another great set of results this time next year.
