I have worked with Jenkins Developments on a number of projects which has been a very positive experience for both myself and my clients. What is very apparent is that both Matt and Phil are construction professionals. They have a total understanding of the technical aspects of the build process and project manage both the costs and workmanship on site. With their attention to detail they are able to achieve the best result for the client. We have successfully worked together as a team, sharing ideas from ‘Concept to Creation’.

As farmers we have had many years of experience in converting and renovating old redundant buildings on our farm in, and we would certainly have no hesitation in recommending Jenkins Developments for this line of work.
This early Victorian stone barn, originally built to house the working Shire Horses on the farm, had been unused for 50 years and presented an ideal opportunity for conversion into a dwelling. After many years waiting for the necessary planning permission we approached Jenkins Developments via our architects, Withey Design. From the very start we appreciated Philip and Matt’s interest and consideration in the plans and our approach to the project.
They presented us with a detailed and well-constructed contract in which everything was clearly laid out and adhered to. At no time throughout the build did they veer from their original plan and any difference to their original costing was explained and justified at every monthly meeting. All the employed and sub- contracted trades were of an excellent standard and were available when necessary.
We built up a good relationship with most of them and in some cases, they were at the top of their skills. It’s important to say that there were only 2 days in 15 months where there was nobody on site – and for both of those days we were given ample notice and it was an unavoidable circumstance. We would have no hesitation in recommending them as competent and co-operative people to deal with, alongside their having an excellent working relationship with everyone who came on site, including ourselves.
Matt and Philip visited us every week without fail and talked us through any concerns we might have had, they were entirely honest and reliable, and the final result is a tribute to them and their efforts.
Jenkins Developments have recently completed a big extension on our house – which has absolutely transformed our home. I have no hesitation in recommending Matt Jenkins and his team to anyone looking for a quality house-builder. They listen to what you want to achieve, are professional, trustworthy, dependable, solution-orientated and produce very high quality work.
Having renovated quite a few properties over the years I had a fairly good idea what we wanted for our new home. Light, space and easy maintenance were a few of the criteria’s that were essential and this is not so easy to find, especially in older houses with thick walls and small windows, without doing extensive renovation. This I had done in my last house so I knew what this entailed and the amount of outlay that was needed to fund this type of project, it always costs more than what you expect.
To come across Matt Jenkins and the houses he had built in Trudoxhill was a God send it offered even more than what we were looking for at a price that we could afford. I love Matt’s attention to detail and openness and willingness to work with us to achieve the home we have today. This has not been my experience with many of the builders I have worked with over the years.
The after sales care has been great too, Matt is always willing to sort out anything that needs to be looked at regardless of the time of day. Steve the foreman has been great and always willing to help with what ever is needed even the simple things like putting up toilet rolls, he is friendly approachable and easy to be with
I would thoroughly recommend Jenkins Developments without hesitation and in complete confidence that they will do an amazing job for whoever decides to use them to build their new home.
When we saw the 3 grand design houses sign at the top of the road into Trudoxhill, it did not occur to either of us that we might one day we the owners of one of these and yet here we are loving living in our new house. The grand design label fed me a picture of something probably too quirky for me and definitely out of my price range, but I was proved wrong on both accounts. There is nothing quirky about these houses but what there is, is a lightness and openness that I love with its modern feel and design. I thought I preferred houses with history and character but after living in this house I would never want to go back to a “character” property, with its heaviness and lack of light allowed in.
Our relationship with Jenkins Developments has been virtually exclusively with Matthew Jenkins, who we have found a pleasure to work with. He has helped us in many ways to tailor the house to our own tastes and requirements and he has been hugely helpful with enabling us to keep our fitting out costs down. Every problem that comes up is quickly dealt with without any fuss or complication. Everything went with a flow and was very simple from our point of view. We can thoroughly recommend Jenkins Developments as a business to work with and also the quality of their houses.
We’re delighted with the new extension to our cottage which has already changed the way we are using the space in our home. From the start, the Jenkins team listened to what we were looking to achieve and managed the planning and build process brilliantly, ensuring the build ran as smoothly and efficiently as possible. Thank you Matt, Philip and all of the first class tradesman that worked on the job.
We appointed Jenkins Developments to renovate and remodel our large Victorian family home within a designated Conservation Area which included building a substantial extension and involved problematic access challenges. The build took just under four months and throughout the entire process we felt confident and totally satisfied by the care, pace and quality of workmanship by all trades who had been appointed. We were kept informed at all stages of the process and are over the moon with the results. Matt and Philip were utterly professional, highly knowledgable about the latest building technology and were genuinely considerate to our neighbours throughout the build and we would’t have a single reservation in recommending them to all our friends and anyone else proposing to undertake a similar project.

We are so pleased with our new house that we felt that we must write to thank everyone at Jenkins Developments for their time and care.
Mr and Mrs T
Matthew has been a great help to me throughout my move to my new Jenkins Developments house. He has been very patient helping me with choices and since I have moved in.
We were told that the standard of workmanship and finish in our new house would be good by the estate agent and it turned out to be true. Everything we had hoped for and much better than our friends have experienced buying from a National house builder.
Miss C and Mr. G
Great house, great service, thanks!
Jenkins Developments renovated our house in Bath, they gave us very sound advice of what would work in the house, introduced us to excellent professional advisers and completed the work on time, on budget and to a high standard. What more could you ask for?
Mr and Mrs L
I wasn’t looking for a new build but as soon as I walked into my house I instantly fell in love with it. So much light! So much space! I could see the quality of the fixtures and fittings and the high standard of the build straight away. Thanks a million Matt and team for my lovely new home which has been completely stress free. Customer Service second to none and I would recommend you to anybody, my house is wonderful!
