High Grange Developments

Established in 1998 High Grange Developments Limited is a family owned business operating on the edge of the Lake District National Park in Cumbria. Its headquarters are in Whitehaven.

High Grange limits the number of dwellings under construction at any one time. By concentrating its resources in this manner, it ensures that quality is never compromised and that the highest standards of craftsmanship are used during every stage of construction, right through to interior decorating. Many property sales result from personal recommendations from existing clients.

All the tradesmen on a High Grange development are employed on the basis of their ability to work to traditional high standards. Quality is never compromised for speed. Investing in training and utilising the local employment base ensures a healthy flow of skilled craftsmen. Trainees are comprehensively schooled in the disciplines and standards expected of a High Grange craftsman. High Grange holds the ‘Investors in People’ Standard.

Every High Grange home is provided with an LABC New Home Warranty. This ensures that the building standards are maintained at premium levels during each stage of construction. This quality intensive approach has been recognised by a constant stream of awards from the supervising authorities.
