Mead Estates Ltd is a family-owned company specialising in house building and building contracting. We generally work within the counties of Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire, developing speculative housing sites and carrying out bespoke building contracts.

Geoff Mead is the Managing Director, responsible for overseeing the company's projects on site and their organisation. Geoff studied Building Surveying at Hertfordshire College and has accumulated over 25 years experience in the business.
Richard Mead, a Civil Engineering graduate of Portsmouth Polytechnic, is responsible for the day-to-day operation of the company's office and finances. He has been with the company since 1989.
Janet Tuffs is the final family member who assists with the company's administration and clerical duties.
We directly employ a small dedicated team of site-based labour and use a number of regular trustworthy sub-contractors to undertake the more specialised building tasks.
New homes warranty scheme
Our new homes are built in accordance with NHBC (National House Building Council) Standards and are regularly inspected by NHBC during all stages of construction for your peace of mind. We are an "A1"-rated (the highest available) NHBC Registered House Builder.

Building Land Required
We are always looking for new development sites in order to continue our long tradition of building fine homes. Contact us if you own land in Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire or Buckinghamshire that you think could be a potential development site.
We are able to oversee the entire process from the initial consultation and submission of a planning application through to completion of the properties and will consider either outright purchase of the site from you or building the properties under a contract or under a profit-share agreement.
