Quadrant Construction was formed in 2010 to add an in-house construction practice to L&Q's operation. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of  L&Q. Joining us means you get all the benefits and stimulating projects you would expect of a big corporation. With support from L&Q, we have created a construction team delivering complex schemes across London and the South East. These include high-rise developments, award-winning regeneration schemes and innovative passive houses using all forms of building structure. We have grown to have a turnover of more than £80 million within five years. We currently have 12 operating schemes throughout London, varying in size from 39 to 366 units.

That means you could have the variety and freedom you are looking for, underpinned by a continuous supply of high-quality new schemes that our ambitious programme guarantees us. We are now working to increase our business substantially and aim to be building 1,200 homes a year within five years as part of a group commitment to build 50,000 homes in ten years. This will make us one of London's largest housebuilders.

Now is the right time to join us and build the capital and your career.
