Golden Houses Developments, the UK-based construction business specialising in high-end residential projects, expects its turnover to exceed £80 million by 2020.
This represents a threefold increase in revenues over the next four years. And Monika Slowikowska, the business’s founder, puts the growth down to good people and process management and a loyal workforce.
“At Golden Houses Developments, we manage the whole construction process,” said Monika, “We enable architects, surveyors and clients to work faster and more efficiently together. As well as this, we make projects simple, fun and cost-effective for everyone involved. In short, we’ve turned the traditional way of working in construction upside down.”
The focus on building harmonious relationships as well as managing the design and construction aspects of a project means Golden House Developments is a proactive partner. “We don’t merely respond to demands or potential problems,” says Monika, “We provide a white collar consultancy service as well as high calibre trades and skills.”
The same philosophy runs through Golden Houses Developments internally. Everyone who works at the business is equally responsible for finding solutions to challenges, improving processes and excelling in their chosen field.
“There’s a genuine business case for focusing on inclusion, wellbeing and personal development,” says Monika, “Happy people form good working relationships, create effective teams and enjoy shared ownership of excellent work. This translates into an effective construction process and the best possible end result for the client.”
Golden Houses Developments has four highly skilled individuals managing its sites and none of its work is subcontracted. This results in lower costs, making the company’s homes a more attractive proposition for the client.
One of very few construction companies led by a woman, Golden Houses Developments brings unrivalled skill, professionalism and integrity to its work and simplifies the building process through clever design and attention to detail.
The company was shortlisted at the RIBA Awards in 2011 and featured on the cover of ELLE Decoration in May 2012. In 2015, it worked with George Clarke, presenter of Channel 4’s hit television show, Amazing Spaces, taking on the challenge to build houses and flats in seven weeks.
