A 15-place jump sees chairman Tony Pidgley's south-east focused luxury home and apartment builder firmly back in the top 10 this year. High-profile projects - such as its part in the residential redevelopment of the old BBC Television Centre in west London - plus strong demand for city centre apartments helped the group build getting on for 4,000 new homes in the year to April 2015, and make a profit of £539.7m for the same period. Managing director Rob Perrins recently called for building on the green belt to be allowed, in order to address the London property shortage.
