Copperleaf are commissioned by private clients to build their own bespoke homes. These homes are the antithesis of trust between us and our clients. It often starts when our clients ask us to consider just an idea or concept, we then embark on a process that will eventually give them a unique and individually designed home.

Copperleaf clients are offered a five-year plan to ensure that their home is as good as the day its handed over. This is part of our OWL process. Copperleaf are happy to discuss any clients requirements in the strictest of confidence.


From starter to family homes Copperleaf have experience in delivering housing development across the residential sector. As we have experience across the whole project lifecycle we are able to bring this level of service to our clients whether we contract with joint venture or turnkey deliver.


Copperleaf develop turnkey affordable housing in partnership with social housing providers. The “what we do” is not that unique. We prefer to concentrate on the “how and why”.

We challenge ourselves to make Affordable development work. Our processes are for the benefit of our collaborators. To achieve this we adopt a longer term relationship philosophy to our involvement with partners. This is not just about maintaining relationships but working on them proactively to invoke change.

Our typical schemes are between 10 and 50 homes and include houses, apartments and cottage style apartments. The designs take account of the environment but will typically be led by our Affordable Providers Partners demand. We engage at the earliest opportunity with our partners to ensure we adopt key considerations such as tenure and property mix, maintenance, lead times, planning and construction.


Copperleaf have carried out various commercial projects from City Centre Office developments to industrial shed canopies and internal offices and fitout. Every time we are challenged to ensure that our Clients are serviced with a high quality finish within commercially acceptable timescales. We recognise that our commercial clients have businesses to run and deadlines to meet.
