Clarendon Homes has evolved and expanded greatly since being formed over 20 years ago. Over the next few weeks we will be introducing you to some of our office departments, to give an insight into the company from the staff’s perspective, exploring our team culture, favourite developments and more! This week we introduce one of the Directors…
With a background in construction, Steve founded the company in 1999 with Kenny, his Co-Director. He has watched the company grow over the years, as we have built a wide variety of developments, and have a constantly expanding team.
