We are constantly seeking new opportunities in residential or mixed-use development, regardless of their planning status or size. Leveraging our extensive experience and expertise, we collaborate closely with clients to unlock the full potential of their projects.

Over the years, we have engaged in numerous joint ventures with landowners and housing associations. Additionally, we have acquired sites unconditionally, subject to planning and through option agreements. Our diverse portfolio showcases our expertise and flexibility in various acquisition models.

Our track record speaks for itself, as we have successfully redeveloped brownfield sites, such as old farm yards. We pride ourselves on working closely with local residents and planners to overcome challenges. Additionally, we collaborate with skilled designers to incorporate relevant features that effectively communicate the development’s size, layout, and positive impact on the local community in the Southwest regions.

Our recently incorporated sister company Blackdown Renewables was created to seamlessly integrate with our current and future projects. Blackdown Renewables now provide all of the services below across Devon, Somerset and Dorset for all domestic and commercial uses. Please visit our website for more information or to get in touch with the team to see how we can meet your needs.


At Blackdown Construction we know Commercial Property Development. Drawing on experience and unique specialist skills in the commercial sector, our speciality is in high street retail and town centre spaces, from all dilapidation work and reconfiguration to complete shop fit outs.

We have developed commercial floor space ranging from national supermarkets to independent local retailers in locations across the South West of England. Blackdown has previously worked closely with asset managers, such as COMPANY X and Green and Partners, alongside landlords like Taunton Land Ltd and Swanmore Estates Ltd and tenants like Holland and Barratt, Barclays and Card Factory.

Our level of care partly comes from our own commercial investments made through our sister company Blackdown Land Ltd. We believe our first hand, in-depth knowledge of a specific town, property or tenant/investor requirement gives us the edge and aids our clients in maximising their asset management initiatives and investment returns.


Over the years, we have fostered strong relationships with numerous architects and we are open to enquiries from professionals in this field. Whether it’s conversions, renovations, new builds, or commercial developments, our project management expertise, flexibility and experience make us an excellent choice for diverse construction projects. We welcome consultation requests and quotations, treating all inquiries with utmost professionalism and integrity. If you have a preferred architect in mind, we are more than happy to collaborate with them to fulfill your vision.


In 2021 we created Sweethay Shepherds Huts. Identifying a fast-growing marketplace for domestic holidays post covid, we decided to branch out and try something different alongside our other projects. We developed a small and dedicated team providing a exceptional quality finished product. From a small start on a farm in the foothills of the Blackdown Hills in Somerset and through determination to make our huts the highest quality around, Sweethay has become what it is today, delivering our huts far and wide across the country.


We love taking on new schemes big or small. Contact our team today to discuss how we can assist in your next project.
