Rheebridge’s philosophy is to bridge between ethical issues and commercial success. Whether building new homes, investing in new businesses or supporting worthwhile causes, all embrace sustainability and quality of life by making material contributions to social, economic and environmental issues within the community.
Founded by property development expert David Rapley, Rheebridge is highly selective in the projects it takes on, such as the spectacular Hobbs House at Parker’s Piece. Rheebridge works on a small number of highly specialised projects and considers only highly unusual or unique opportunities.
David Rapley was formerly the founder and Managing Director of Camstead Homes which he built up to become one of the largest and most highly regarded developers in East Anglia, before selling the company in 2007. He also works closely with sister company Laragh Homes, which also specialises in bespoke developments which are always designed to enhance their surroundings.
Dedicated to bridging the gap between profit and not-for-profit organisations for the good of communities, Rheebridge is involved with a number of local charities and organisations and is proud to have been able to support a wide range of causes across Cambridgeshire and beyond. These include sponsoring the Rheebridge Open Art Exhibition, which also helps young artists to find recognition, to working with the Countryside Restoration Trust, Tom’s Trust and the Asthma Fair, among others.
Rheebridge works on the belief that every community depends upon thriving business to create an environment in which its population can prosper, grow and develop. To help make a positive difference, it is committed to a programme of selective angel investment, based on 25 years of highly successful business practice. This encompasses direct investment for new and existing companies involved in ‘positive change’ – organisations, in fact, with a similar vision and philosophy to our own. Rheebridge welcomes exciting new business propositions – please see the main website for more information.
