Nationwide Building Society


Through our not-for-profit housing project ‘Oakfield’, we’re creating 239 quality, sustainable homes on a derelict brownfield site in our hometown of Swindon, where no other housebuilder was prepared to build. 

As a building society with housing and community at our roots, we’ve taken a fresh approach to housebuilding to inspire others to deliver true social value.

By working with supply chain partners that respect our guiding principles, over 90% of which are local or small, we have built blueprint for better housebuilding.

The Guardian called this project a “revolutionary not-for-profit venture challenging the major housebuilders’ grip on the market."
