Our latest feedback and testimonials is always available on, but here is a few things people have said about HDS recently…


Two story extension and detached annexe

“Took a bit longer than expected, but for justifiable reasons. Delighted with the quality of work. Found the communication throughout the project was very good, much better than with previous home renovation work we have undertaken.”

Daniel Meyer

New 2 storey extensions with refurbishment.

“We would love to recommend HDS for the future, their work is of such a high standard and they were so conscious on every decision throughout the build. We knew it was going be an upheaval having so much work done with 3 young children, but the guys onsite always endeavoured to keep the pace clean and safe. We decided on quite a few extras, which Martin, constantly updated us on, regarding cost, which made budgeting far easier. We are so happy with our new home!”

Sarah Mcewen

2 new detached houses complete builds.

“We contracted Hurst Development Solutions to undertake 2 detached houses for us in Merrow, Guildford. Martin project managed the job efficiently and professionally and manage to overcome all minor obstacles faced during the build. We would highly recommend them, and plan to employ them again on future projects.”

David O’Flaherty

Extensive remodel of ground floor and single story extension.

“From the first time we met Martin, we felt like a good fit. He spent time understanding our plans, looking at the property and asking all the right questions. The work started on time. The team were incredibly considerate of our situation – living in the property throughout with 2 young children. The most disruptive work was planned for during half term when we were away – they even provided a makeshift kitchen. They made suggestions in keeping with the rest of the house ( sockets, doors). The quality of the work was fantastic. For a worry-free experience, and quality finish, choose HDS!”

Steven Smith

New build house.

“From the moment we started speaking with HDS they were a breathe of fresh air. Martin spent time going through quotes, doing site visits, giving us advice and working towards our budget. This is the first house we have built, so finding HDS has been a God send. The team are great with the neighbours, building control, suppliers and everything you could wish for. They have been ahead of schedule, which is unheard of for me, very clear on pricing, stuck to deadlines, persistent throughout and offer the quintessential service everybody looks for. We will be using HDS again and recommend 100%!”

Isabella Stevenson

Complete Refurbishment of Maisonette.“I cannot recommend this business enough. Right from the outset Martin and his team were so helpful in putting together the plan for the refurbishment of my rather dated maisonette. Works included a complete new layout which involved knocking down the existing internal walls, rebuilding new ones to make best use of space, rewiring, removal of old storage radiators and installation of a new combi boiler and gas radiators, conversion of a cupboard into a downstairs cloakroom, new luxury en suite bathroom, new kitchen, paintwork, plastering etc. Fantastic job!!”

E.J Winter Solicitors (Reading)

The guys down at HDS are always very helpful and accurate with land and development assessments. We will market the current development in Emmer Green and in our experience they repeatedly build above and beyond their clients expectations.

Dave Allen, Nicholas Estate Agents (Reading)

HDS did a complete renovation and extension for me in 2010, we were thrilled to bits with the job and the amount of aftercare we received! Good guys!

Daniel Clarke – Caversham, Reading

Having been our builder now for nearly 7 years we have built an extremely healthy working relationship. We would fully recommend their services in a range of areas within the building sector.

Grace Allen Homes (Berks)

I had a bespoke conservatory hand crafted and installed by HDS, which I love! They also dealt with building control and submitted building regulations on our behalf, we plan to use them again very soon.

Dr. Clare Skinner (Berks)

We had Hurst completely refurbish our property and construct a 2 storey extension last year. They were with us through every single step and the aftercare was second to none. Would definitely recommend to anyone that wants a professional service.

James Gayle (Cobham)

I would like to take this opportunity to thank HDS for an excellent job done in gaining the required Certificate of Lawfulness.
