Proud of what we create

Construction is our main business.


We construct mainly new build residential homes, but have 

experience in many types of construction.


Typically our contract values are between £500,000 and £2,000,000 but we have undertaken projects in excess of £8,000,000.

We take your site with planning permission and return it as a fully completed, ready to sell development.

We develop property under another brand; the principals of Java Green understand your needs as a developer.


Our projects as developers can be seen as and range from 5 - 60 units per site.

Through Java Green we advise others on developments from acquisition to specification to general problem solving. We can help with contacts in any number of areas.

Site recovery

Unfortunately liquidations are on the rise with 75% of all company liquidations in Q2 2019 related to construction.

If this has happened to your site, we can help.

We have extensive experience in finishing jobs that have gone wrong.

We can help with certification, negotiating with unpaid sub-contractors and getting the project where you need it to be. If needed we can take over as main contractor.



Java Green was formed by Ed Deedman to bring together his experience as both main contractor and as a property developer.


Ed started in 2003, refurbishing flats and small houses to sell; this quickly grew into undertaking similar work for others. In 2009 the building work switched wholly to New Build developments as a main contractor. At the same time many of these projects were completed as Joint Ventures or with Ed advising in a co-developer role. 

The range of projects Ed and his team have been involved with is quite diverse. :

  • Residential units for resale of various types and sizes

  • Highest specification large modern homes with automation

  • Underground car park construction

  • Air rights conversions

  • Completion of sites where the contractor has liquidated

We can help with everything involved in building and developing property.
