Quod Homes was established in 2013 but the team have been in the building trade since 2002. From initially carrying out only our own personal small projects and renovations, we branched out into client work during the 2008/2009 housing bubble burst. Since then, we’ve never looked back and have extended, renovated and built many homes ranging from outhouses to annexes & basements to loft conversions.
Over the last few years our success has led us to become a recognised quality construction company in London and we have earned a reputation as a professional building and renovation partner that consistently delivers on promises made. The founding team were strengthened and enhanced in 2013 and again in 2018 and hence we have re-branded to Quod Group Ltd but still trade under Quod Homes.
We firmly believe that our success lies in an ability to consistently deliver, via our hands on Project Manager led input, the integration of new technology and our 6 step design and build process which is a fundamental and an integral part of our business.
Quod Homes use a limited pool of trusted subcontractors and suppliers with whom we have established long term relationships. We only select those members of our supply chain for projects where we feel they possess the capacity and technical prowess to complete their role in a manner satisfactory to both Quod Homes and ultimately you; the client.
For any other queries or to have a chat before deciding to start a project, why not call our team today, there is only no cost to you to meet with us and our consultant led input may get you thinking about alternative ways to do things, which inevitably may save costs and time.
A Quod Homes Project Manager is on site daily to ensure the day-to-day quality of construction works
Our Project Manager will be part of your project from the beginning to oversee the quality of our work throughout the build. We have Project Management processes in place that involve the detailed definition of a Project Plan, followed up by site visits and engagement with the yourself throughout the build process. This ensures that every project can be delivered within the agreed budget, whilst retaining the flexibility to allow you to make changes to the detail of the renovation should you need to.
Health & Safety
Your dedicated project manager will ensure the running of a safe site on every project – Irrespective of size
Safety during your build is extremely important to us, and it is our on-site Project Manager’s responsibility to ensure this. We pride ourselves with fully complying with all Health & Safety policies and construction regulations, and do so by implementing appropriate monitoring and supervision procedures.
Our integrated approach to Building Control ensure a compliant, on-time and on-budget project.
Quod Homes offer a Building Control approval service. This timely and responsive service by building inspectors helps to ensure the smooth and efficient running of projects, and enables us to produce robust, safe and compliant construction work. We provide all the regs/drawings/plans and calculations that are required to comply with Building Regulations.
Our Building Control service supports Home Renovations, Kitchen Extensions, Loft Conversions, Basement Conversions and internal remodelling projects.

Build work Guarantee
At Quod Homes we build quality – So it goes without saying that we are willing to guarantee our work.
Quod Homes offers our clients a comprehensive guarantee for the quality of all work undertaken.
Specifically, this includes a 10-year guarantee for any structural defect and 10-year delta membrane waterproofing cover.
We are your local Design & Build team – With experienced Designers, Engineers & Architects at hand safety standards are not just met but exceeded
Quod Homes employs experienced civil and structural engineers whose job it is to ensure adherence to all relevant safety standards during the build project. Our engineers will begin by conducting a comprehensive structural review of your property, itemising any reinforcement measures that will need to be carried out.
We will also supply the necessary expertise in Party Wall issues and can manage the process of any required consultation with owners of neighbouring properties, in order to avoid any collateral structural impacts. The Party Wall Act serves to both enable home owners to carry out work on party walls, even if this involves the full thickness of the wall, whilst still protecting neighbouring property owners from suffering any loss as a consequence. The Act includes a requirement for individuals to provide neighbours with prior notification of work, in order to minimise disputes later. In the event of any dispute relating to proposed work on one of our projects, our surveyor will intervene and aid to decide upon how and when the work should be carried out.
With our extensive experience of construction and renovation work in London, we are familiar with local planning law and Building Control regulations. We are also well accustomed to the nature of properties in this area, and so can ensure that any changes we make to your property are appropriate and acceptable to the local context.
We at Quod Homes can also take responsibility for the process of obtaining the required planning permission for your project, and so relieve you of any stress relating to this process. Our team adhere to proven project management best practices and industry leading technology, to ensure that we produce the desired outcome, and communicate progress to you throughout the process.
