      Durkan Homes - Pitch

      Wintringham for Durkan Homes

      Working in partnership. Delivering results.

      We are delighted to be given the opportunity to work alongside Durkan on the Wintringham development, continuing our relationship from successful land sales to new homes and forging stronger working relationships between our respective businesses moving forward.

      We very much hope that this is our opportunity to assist Durkan on our first sales and marketing instruction and will provide the opportunity to demonstrate the ‘value add’ that Bidwells can deliver on all our developments.


      With the added investment through development and infrastructure within and surrounding Wintringham, coupled with the forecast growth surrounding Cambridge, this will undoubtedly have a continuing positive impact on the wider region.

      Wintringham provides an important strategic site for Cambridgeshire and will deliver a much needed housing supply and new settlement within easy commute of both London and Cambridge. Post pandemic we have seen a considerable increase from purchasers for the regional towns and villages as the average buyer now commutes longer to work as the home working option continues to be established. Wintringham offers the perfect solution for any regional buyer.

      On this page we demonstrate our:

      • Innovative sales and marketing plan, identifying target markets, demands, needs and optimising product design to maximise outcome and value
      • Team of trusted, committed and enthusiastic agents who will ‘get under the skin’ of the development at the earliest opportunity, providing a strong and effective platform for success
      • Forward thinking approach to selling, both through digital and  traditional media, adapting and challenging methods to remain one step ahead of market conditions whilst not forgetting the basic principles of agency
      • Proven track record, statistics and case studies showing where we have achieved recent success.


      Making specific reference to the information required by Durkan, we have detailed below three core developments managed alongside our developer clients in which Bidwells was involved in all aspects of the sales and marketing process, working with each developer’s in-house teams or adopting our own  marketing campaigns where resource was not available from our developer clients.

      These sites encompass a large strategic site now complete on the fringes of Cambridge: a large village scheme to the south of the city and a smaller scheme to the north west.

      Great Kneighton, Cambridge - Countryside Properties

      190 private units (Phases 1&2)
      Total GDV £81,358,161
      Average £356/sq ft
      267 private unites (Phases 1&2)
      Total GDV £133,294,045
      Average £372/sq ft
      396 private units (Phases 1,2,3&4)
      Total GDV £247,177,988
      Average £461/sq ft

      One of the city’s first strategic sites which broke ‘new ground’ on design. Bidwells achieved direct sales of 24% of the total and shared staffing and marketing costs.

      Strong gateway and product from Countryside raised the new homes ‘bar’ in Cambridge although it had its fair share of construction problems throughout the journey.

      • 863 units
      • Total GDV £461,830,194
      • Average £411/sq ft
      • Incentives overall: 4.1%
      • Nine years
      • Average sales rate - 7.8 per month

      Proposed Strategy

      Bidwells will provide a full new homes service at Wintringham from launch to final completions. Our considered, proactive and effective approach to new homes will work in synergy with Durkan and together we will produce results.

      Our New Homes Sales Process


      AVR and Matterport are a key aspect in any marketing campaign, particularly following the impact of Covid. Engagement in all aspects of our tours has increased considerably and they are a perfect way to introduce a development such as Wintringham.

      Videos and Interviews

      Use video in a creative way to support the launch of the development by filming interviews with Durkan representatives, the local community and surrounding area.

      Located on the outskirts of St Neots, Wintringham is one of Urban & Civic’s major projects providing a wellconnected community with design and wellbeing at its core.
