Thakeham Client

Thakeham Client offers a flexible, tailor-made design and build service that works seamlessly with the client’s requirements. We believe in providing a service that goes way beyond a simple build contract.


About Thakeham Client

The team can lend their expertise to each individual project, on any level that may be required. Our range of current projects include residential and social housing, commercial, retail, education and leisure schemes.

As part of the larger Thakeham Group, we have access to their bank of professional skills, services and contractors and are able to pass on their buying discounts in the form of competitive tenders.

However, we approach any new project not from just a cost basis, but also from a buildability, appearance and health & safety point of view. We ensure that the finished product represents the most cost effective, attractive and buildable combination that can be achieved for our clients.

Thakeham Client

Beyond simple design and build

At Thakeham Client we believe in providing a service that goes way beyond a simple build contract. Of course we build, and build to exceptional standards, but we also offer advice on design, layout, specification and construction methods. When the project is agreed, we can, if you require, enhance the package to provide sales and marketing expertise, prepare a marketing delivery strategy and the design and installation of showhomes. We can also help with advice on appointing letting or selling agents.

An extension of your team

Our approach is to work seamlessly with our clients on their project from start to finish. Effectively, we become an extension of our clients’ team, ensuring that we are delivering exactly what is required throughout the build journey and obtaining maximum value from the project.

The flexible approach extends to the forms of contract we can offer, whether we negotiate; competitive tender, contract build or cost-plus.
By providing fully priced bills of quantities, we can enter into a fixed-price contract, an important consideration with some with lending institutions.

A team you will trust

With Thakeham Client, you will benefit from working with our experienced, professional management team, which includes architects, engineers, civil consultants, landscape and external works designers along with sales & marketing experts. All principal members of the team are available to plan, progress, implement and advise upon potential projects.

To date, we have worked successfully with a number of private developers, housing associations, and those within the commercial, retail, education and leisure sectors.

Under The Thakeham Banner

In 2012, Steve Tuhey renewed an old acquaintance with Rob Boughton and Julian Rooney of Thakeham Homes. This business trio reunited to create a new division of the Thakeham Group, which would undertake contract build works for housing associations, developers and individuals who would both appreciate and require a build service that went far beyond the normal building contractor service.

Thakeham Client, established in 2012, has rapidly grown to become a key player in the £1m to £10m market sector. It has successfully integrated its unique style of service into building packages that includes all of the disciplines that Thakeham Client can offer.

Operating throughout Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire and Kent, Thakeham Client’s turnover now exceeds £10 million per annum, and its staff base has been expanded to accommodate this consistent growth.

The team consists of a number of key personnel who have extensive experience throughout the industry. Their skills are clear when it comes to project management, delivery and levels of quality, and they are able to exceed many of the clients’ expectations.

Passing on the Thakeham Benefits

Thakeham is a stable and well-funded group whose housebuilding division is a well established company constructing aspirational but achievable market leading homes. A sizeable new home team coupled with unrivalled land holdings make a formidable force across the South East.

These strengths feed into Thakeham Client, allowing us to pass on the benefits to our clients. One is cost, group buying discounts obtained from the housebuilding side can be passed on to clients in the form of competitive tenders.

Another is quality of product and people. The Group is continually reviewing construction techniques and can advise on the most cost-effective way of complying with evolving Building Regulations.
