Denne Construction has built a business developing London and southeast England. The company constructs affordable housing, apartments, schools, office buildings, and other structures. The regional contractor focuses primarily on clients in the public sector, with an emphasis on subsidized housing, public construction, education, and senior living projects. Customers include Southern Housing Group, Hyde Housing Care UK, and Hyde New Build, among others. The company is part of The Leadbitter Group, which was acquired in a Bouygues-led management buyout from Dutch construction firm Heijmans in 2010. Denne Construction traces its roots to 1803, when it specialized in building coffins and other items.
