AMEC Regeneration is created to look at transforming derelict sites with Government assistance.
We sign development agreements for Wakefield Europort, Eurocentral in North Lanarkshire and Newcastle Quayside.
A new era
AMEC Developments is created from a merger between AMEC Properties and AMEC Regeneration.
We undertake pre-let development opportunities including Barbirolli Square in Manchester, Almondvale in Livingston and Hulme High Street in Manchester.
English Cities Fund
The English Cities Fund is created as a joint venture between Homes England, Legal & General and AMEC Developments to undertake projects in 'Assistant Areas'.
We launch Waterside Places, a joint venture between Canal & River Trust, Igloo and AMEC Developments.

We win a number of new opportunities in places including Basingstoke, Manchester Victoria, Blackpool, Doncaster and Warrington.

A new voice
We refresh the Muse brand and roll it out across the business.
We ramp up activity significantly with new neighbourhoods commencing in Lewisham, Reading, Salford and the Northern Quarter in Manchester.
Increased activity, capital employed and turnover doubles. We have a number of successive record years for profit, and staffing increases by 50%.
The English Cities Fund doubles
The English Cities Fund doubles in size to a £200m fund and we start to seek new opportunities.
We move to new offices in London (Soho Square), Salford (Riverside House) and Leeds (East Parade).
The start of the Covid-19 pandemic. Despite challenging circumstances, we sign major forward funding agreements for Lewisham Gateway Phase 2 (£252 Get Living London) and New Victoria (£130m PIC).
Our Sustainable Future
We launch our industry-leading sustainable development strategy, Our Sustainable Future. This data-driven strategy provides us with clear guidelines and targets to deliver the highest levels of environmental performance, transparency, and accountability.
A long-term commitment
We recommit with our partners, Legal and General and Homes England to extend the life of our highly-successful joint venture, The English Cities Fund, to December 2036.
