Fairview specialises in developing housing on brownfield sites in London and the southeast of England. Last year, it announced a joint venture with housing association L&Q to build 800 apartments and office space at the site of a former Guinness brewery in northwest London. Under executive chairman Gerald Malton, 56, sales increased by two-thirds to £298.1m in 2016, helped by the completion of 767 homes — up from 435 the year before.
