As our name Blaydon Developments suggests, working on new builds is a major part of our business. Most of the key trades are covered by our own staff, and we have trusted partners brought in for specialist skills or extra capacity.

One of the keys to success in a new build is project management ensuring that the right materials and labour are in the right place at the right time. All our projects are supervised at Director level, with many successful projects and delighted clients to our credit.

Our high level of skill and experience means that architects and designers can rely on us to deliver their visions in a well constructed and on-time project. We also have in-house design capability and extensive experience of liasing with Local Authority planners and inspectors, ensuring that projects get planning consent and Building Regulations approval as quickly as possible.

With projects ranging from extensions and modest forest cottages to a 715 sq metre dwelling complete with a heated internal swimming pool, sauna and gym, we specialise in bespoke houses and have constructed many impressive new properties such as Chedworth which can be seen in the photos above.

We have the benefit of having a working office located in the centre of Lyndhurst for daily contact, together with a workforce of eleven time served, full time tradesmen, many of whom have been with us since the early years.

Keith, Paul or our site manager Rob visits each of our jobs each day, actively taking care of your needs.

In addition to domestic work, we also carry out small commercial projects.

Case Study: Replacement Dwelling at Calmore, New Forest (2011)

An old damp property was demolished and a new thermally efficient dwelling built within the confines of a small site with the added complication of a working cattery on site.

The new house has an air source heat pump using solar thermal panels, a log burner with water heater and heat store, and solar photovoltaic panels. All roof mounted solar panels are hidden from view.

During September to January the daily fuel consumption worked out at £4 per day, including heating the cattery. In the summer power will be sold back into the grid, generating income.


Case Study: Gardeners Lane, Romsey (2011)

A new thermally efficient dwelling built on a large mature plot. The old building was draughty, cold and damp and no matter how much oil was burnt, our clients could not keep it warm in winter. Due to the size of the plot we were able to install a ground source heat pump to provide all heating and hot water. Heating is via a wet underfloor system throughout the house fed from a heat store. Although the new dwelling is three times larger than the old dwelling fuel costs are expected to be halved.
