1970s - 1990s

The Stoke Hill Estate and the Primrose Park Estate were constructed in the early 1970s and were a mixture of semi-detached and terraced houses for sale, followed by flats in Earle Court and bungalows in Regis Walk.

Wootton Court was a significant entry to the private lettings arena, in the days of rent regulation. This is a three storey block of apartments on the corner of Henley Road and Wyken Croft. It remains typical of the construction of that period.

In 1970 Bob’s son Robert entered the business full time and became General Manager of the company. The late 1970s also saw the start of the fifty Mount Pleasant Estate, following many years of discussions with the planning authorities. This is a major mixed development which incorporates family homes, sheltered accommodation, shared ownership apartments, and retail and leisure development. The final phase of this development is currently under construction.

An early phase was the construction of family homes in Manfield Avenue, followed by sheltered accommodation at Marsh House, built for the New Hestia Housing Association. This was followed by detached houses in Turlands Close and more houses, bungalows and maisonettes in Shuna Croft and The Kintyre. The naming of the roads on many of the developments reflected old Bob’s deep affection for Scotland where he spent many holidays.

The Henley Industrial Estate was built in partnership with AP Metalcraft Ltd in the mid 1980s. This consisted of fourteen new industrial units and eventually the conversion of the firm’s offices and joinery works into a further unit and the existing petrol station to a retail outlet.
