Over the last ten years, PDR has delivered over 1000 units in the area of residential construction, with the majority of building projects located in Greater London.

Each individual construction project is unique – our portfolio ranges from 20 to 130 unit developments, and from 3 to 20 storeys in height. Through working with both private developers and housing associations on numerous projects, we established a London office to serve clients in and around the M25.

This expertise is now available outside of our London base, as Clients look further afield.


Over the past 20 years, we have demonstrated our proficiency and expertise in constructing buildings that are occupied by major U.K. grocers and retailers. We have also added value to existing retail parks through a process of remodelling and extending, as well as constructing full newly-built destinations.

We are currently framework contractors for some of the most prolific food retailers, but are equally eager to be working on developer-led schemes across the U.K. Our efforts are concentrated on the construction of new stores, building both shell and fully fitted projects.

For developers and pension funds, PDR has constructed over 1.5 million sq/ft of trading parks across the U.K. We are well-accustomed to working on greenfield and brownfield sites, as well as live retail environments – accommodating tenant fit out access in order to speed up trading.

Motor Retail

In 28 years, we have built up a portfolio of over 300 completed motor trade projects for the majority of U.K. motor franchises.

As manufacturers and motor retailers continually raise their exacting standards we, along with our specialist supply chain, have matched their requirements whilst maintaining an ever-present commercial edge.

Health and Education

This sector has seen considerable growth in recent years, allowing us to combine our experience in the residential and hotel market to deliver schemes for our healthcare Clients.

Over the last 5 years we have delivered in excess of 600 bedrooms, from independent living through to specialist dementia care facilitates.

In addition, we continue to provide construction services to both public and private Clients within education and other healthcare sectors, such as Colleges and PCTs.


We have built a large number of manufacturing and storage facilities across the U.K. The size of these construction projects ranges from 20,000 to 200,000 sq/ft, and includes work on both green and brownfield sites.

With the help of our tried and trusted design teams and supply chain, we have been able to deliver on challenging sites and under tight timescales, while still achieving a quality product.


The office market in the north of the U.K. has developed fast since the post-recession period.

Through working with established developer clients, we have delivered over 400,000 sq/ft of office accommodation, all completed to Grade A specifications. We have completed projects involving entire fit outs, as well as shell and core builds.

Hotels and Leisure

For more than 10 years, we have been building for the UK’s most established hotel groups throughout the country.  Not only are these franchises growing their profile and standards, but also their geographical coverage and numbers.

Restaurant chains we have partnered with have followed suit in terms of raising their profile and standards.  We have built both stand-alone units and terraces in retail and leisure locations.
