Established in 1970 we have grown from a small, family contractor to become a leading development company in London and the Home Counties.

Building high quality homes requires excellence, expertise and innovation and we have been delivering all three for over 50 years. Over that time, we’ve seen housebuilding methods and designs change to meet the ever-evolving needs of homeowners and we thrive on continually responding to those needs. As a result, we create desirable properties in outstanding locations. Our customers are more discerning than ever so we work closely with our suppliers, consultants and contractors to deliver premium, well-designed homes which satisfy the needs and aspirations of our homeowners.

We’re committed to minimising environmental impact by managing resources efficiently and driving change through the implementation of sustainable building methods, products and materials. It is this focus on excellence and our determination to keep building quality homes and thriving, sustainable communities which makes us a homebuilder of choice for London and the Northern Home Counties.

We have retained the attention to detail and customer focus that has underpinned the company’s success, whilst moving into new build housing development and occupied refurbishment. Durkan has established its name as a local homebuilder with a talent for working with local stakeholders to deliver successful new developments.
