About us

Formed in 1953

Rowlinson has built a strong delivery reputation in the construction and property sectors.

Our reputation is built on our hard-working ethic, a collaborative approach and a continuous focus on the best outcome possible for our partners, clients and communities. At the heart of Rowlinson is a team of skilled and committed people, many of whom have been part of our journey over the years.

We employ many of our workforce directly, making a valuable contribution to the economic sustainability of the communities in which we work. Much of our new business involves people we have worked with before. Clients know that through our expertise they can depend on us to deliver a high quality service and product.

Meet The Team

Our history

Rowlinson is a privately owned and managed company with the ability to offer flexible and deliverable solutions, rather than off-the-peg responses.

We are experienced in the design, construction and refurbishment of residential, industrial and commercial projects for both public and private sector clients as well as being a developer in our own right.

The Rowlinson Way

We Like
To Listen

Working collaboratively with our staff partners and suppliers encourages a culture of continuous improvement.

Building Great

We are proud that we are often selected to work with existing partners on new schemes, with around 75% of our work coming from repeat business.

A name you
can trust

When you work with us you can be assured we will deliver. We believe in traditional values, which we combine with a flair for creative solutions.

We go the
extra mile

Working together we make things happen. We like to keep the bar set high and always aim to deliver a fantastic service and product.

Social Value

Giving back is an important part of Rowlinson’s culture. We always have, and always will, find ways to support the communities that we work within, bringing about positive outcomes and benefits.

Delivering inclusive growth is a direct benefit for local people and the communities they are part of. It also feeds into the many shared priorities of other stakeholders in areas such as health, education, and crime reduction. We benefit too, with our employees getting a direct boost from their involvement.

Supporting people through training

For over 40 years, Rowlinson has annually recruited and trained apprentices in a range of construction roles. It is something we are proud of and continue to support.

Our own team includes people who started out as apprentices with us and have stayed with us and progressed in their careers.

Delivering social value

Our strategy is defined around our own core elements:

  • Promoting opportunities and support for younger people as a priority
  • Using the right tools for each community, not a one-size-fits-all approach
  • Ensuring early engagement with local stakeholders to get the support right

An important part of the piece is promoting achievements and successes, allowing others to see what is possible.



As well as building and refurbishing thousands of homes for local authorities and registered social landlords, we use our expertise to bring together viable funding solutions, working closely with government agencies, to develop sites and deliver high quality new housing - often with affordable options built-in.


Environmental considerations remain at the forefront of what we do. Building through better design, techniques and standards helps us to build in a more sustainable way – reusing materials, sending less to landfill and reducing energy use.
