Family Owned Property Development Company
in the South West
Martins Developments has gone through many changes over the years, but one thing has remained at the forefront of our values: family. It all began the best part of a century ago with Nicky’s grandfather, who had a building company of his own. The natural progression was for Nicky’s father to take over, establishing the company as K.P Martin Builders. Some 20 years ago, Nicky took over from his father as a qualified electrician with a flair for construction, and a desire to keep the family business going strong.
Unfortunately, the recession hit K.P Martin Builders rather hard and the business suffered as a result. That said, it would take more than one set-back to cause Nicky to throw in the towel. After his father passed, Nicky started a new family construction company with his mother called Xavier Developments. This business thrived for a time until 2016 when his mother passed away, causing yet another ripple throughout the family. It was then that the business evolved into what it is today: Martins Developments, going back to its roots and embracing the family name once more and going on to build in excess of 250 individual units. It’s fair to say that we’re well-versed in building homes!
Our workforce is our family
Of course, we wouldn’t be where we are without our exceptional workforce
– the majority of which are known personally by Nicky himself.
It is important to Nicky and the rest of the team that we treat our employees as an extension of our family. It is this belief in the value in taking excellent care of everyone both onsite and offsite that drives Martins Developments and we couldn’t be prouder of it!
Health & safety is paramount
We take great pride in the level of health & safety that we employ in every project that we take on.
We work with an established health & safety company, with a number of qualified individuals on site at all times. Of course, safety and cleanliness on a building site is crucial for preventing accidents and ensuring that the overall integrity of the site is exceptional.
As such, you can expect all of the homes that we produce to exceed expectations and meet
an impeccably high build quality.
Our vision is a simple one really: we want nothing more than to continue producing high-quality homes
for those who work hard and deserve the finer things in life.
We aim to grow the business by at least 50%, year on year, producing exceptional homes on a much grander scale, with the
end goal of course, to keep the family business running strong as it is passed down from generation to generation.
Nicky’s children, Holly & Kenny (an accountant and digital designer), have shown great promise and will undoubtedly
take the business to new heights – but not just yet!
