Karl joined Berkeley in 1996 as a Construction Director and now currently heads the Berkeley East and West Thames Division which includes three of the largest regeneration projects in the UK – Kidbrooke Village, Royal Arsenal Riverside and Southall Waterside.

Once complete these three new developments will provide over 15,000 new homes in London for over 40,000 people and will embody a vision that both Karl and Berkeley share of transforming ex-industrial land and creating real communities for people from all walks of life.
