At King & Drury, we have a wealth of experience in successfully delivering high-end refurbishments, renovations and new build properties. With both domestic and commercial clients across Sussex, our work ranges from listed buildings to contemporary projects.

Through every contract, we remain dedicated to surpassing client expectations with our customer-first approach. In practice, this means…

  • No hidden costs - at the start of a project, we spend as much time with the client as needed to ensure all details and costs are agreed from the outset. This way there are no unexpected charges further down the line.
  • Minimal disruption - during construction, our conscientious and professional team will go out of their way to not only minimise disruption to your life, but to your neighbours' lives too. Simply put, your home will be treated as a home, not a building site.
  • First-class aftercare - just because we've handed over the keys, that doesn't mean our job is done. We remain just as attentive during the aftercare process as through the build itself.
  • Full design and build services - our experienced team offers a full complement of design and build services, from feasibility studies to building warranties. This means you have everything you need for your project under one roof.
  • Attention to quality and detail - when it comes to build quality, we believe our work speaks for itself. Take a look at our work below...

A dream home by the sea, East Preston

The brief

Our brief was to build an ultra-modern dream home, covering 900m2 by the sea in East Preston. As well as key challenges surrounding the property’s size and coastal environment, we also had to adhere to the stipulations of the Private Management Committee, who had their own restrictions on working hours, deliveries and noise levels.

The work

To minimise disruption to the neighbours, we demolished the existing building and crushed the rubble on site rather than take it away. This saved over 40 lorry loads of waste leaving the site. We then used this to build a platform through which we piled the foundations. As a result, the ground floor rooms all have elevated sea views and the traffic was kept to a minimum.

The result

The use of render, slate and glass has created a home that has real architectural presence. Special consideration has been applied to the design and construction to provide large open spans that capitalise on the panoramic sea views. The use of concrete and steel work have allowed for glass doors that are 12 meters wide and yet stand up to the harsh coastal environment. The concept drawings produced by Haydn Jones from Saville Jones Architects, have since been nominated for a design award.
