Construction firm Hodgkinson Builders has launched its own home sales division.

After more than 30 years of building and contracting, the team behind the Derby firm has set up Hodgkinson Homes, to enable the firm to sell its own brand-new homes on the open market.

Operations director Robert Hodgkinson has made the announcement to coincide with the start of construction on Rosarium Heights, a forthcoming 10-home development, off Clifton Road, in Ashbourne.

Hodgkinson Builders, which is also involved in the construction of The Condor build-to-rent scheme, at Becketwell, in Derby, has made its name in the development of mainly social housing projects, as well as the construction of family homes for other property clients.

Those parts of the business will continue to thrive, with Hodgkinson Homes adding another dimension to its offering.

Robert said: “We are passionate about housing and building dreams.

“This makes perfect business sense as we have all the resources – and the demand for housing is there.

“For many years, we’ve had the skill set, the labour and the enthusiasm to do this.

“It’s a natural progression to our core business that I’ve been keen to do for a while.

“This development in Ashbourne provides the ideal opportunity to launch Hodgkinson Homes.”

Robert said that one of the best things about the new sales division was the opportunities it would create in terms of apprenticeships and trade jobs.

Each new Hodgkinson Homes development will require new bricklaying apprentices, labourers, site managers and skilled construction workers.

Robert said: “We will always be looking for local people first, and we’re always keen to get good people on board.”
