A CONSTRUCTION company specialising in barn conversions and listed property renovation is hoping to build upon its previous success.

Kent Building Developments Ltd has been building and renovating properties for many years and despite the slowdown across the construction sector has managed to maintain its core workforce to deliver projects.

Managing director Steve Kent said the business was in a strong position to move forward as the market picks up. Steve said: “I’ve managed to keep hold of my key workforce by securing work over some very difficult trading times. With a positive shift towards more construction projects coming through I’m hoping I can reward their loyalty.”

Being able to offer a range of design and build services, including architectural design, planning, project management and high quality building work has seen Kent Building Developments Ltd undertake some major contracts, including converting a barn into a swimming pool, the conversion of 12th century St John’s Church in York into the Parish Bar, the award-winning Woldsend Holiday Cottages and York’s first Eco-Friendly home.

“We’re passionate about what we do. We relish extraordinary and challenging projects which allow us to design and build unique homes and commercial spaces,” said Mr Kent.
