Owners with over 40 years experience in real estate development and construction
A rare ability to deliver all elements of property development in-house - even construction
Kings Crescent Homes was founded by Nick Harvey-Jones and Radu Dinului-Mereantu, who originally met and worked together in a developer-contractor capacity. This solid relationship quickly led to them joint venturing on a number of successful developments and then soon after, the formation of their integrated property development business - Kings Crescent Homes.
The directors have a combined experience of over 40 years in real estate investment, development and construction across the UK, Europe and Australia. Their rare ability to deliver large scale projects mostly in-house, including most elements of construction, sets Kings Crescent Homes apart from many. Investment partners are able to rely on a company with ultimate control on timing and budget. Their customers who buy or rent their homes are able to trust that quality control is at the heart of their mission.
Meet the Founders
Nick has over 20 years' experience in real estate investment, development and finance. He has held senior roles at some of the largest companies in the world, such as CBRE and Macquarie Bank, but also foundered a number of his own businesses in real estate investment management and corporate finance, at all times having a large exposure to real estate development. Once running over £1 billion in intensive asset management real estate funds in commercial and residential/student accommodation sectors, he has learnt to be obsessed with the detail, but also to take a strategic view of the bigger picture. He is now fully focused on running the strategy, transactions and funding for Kings Crescent Homes.
Radu also has 20 years' experience in real estate, with his background mainly focussed on construction. He has worked in senior positions for large European construction companies, and has also foundered his own construction company, Vidi Construction. His vast technical experience in construction and engineering, and his strength in business management allow him to handle large scale projects with optimal efficiency. Radu manages the construction side of the business, where his skilled team of sometimes hundreds of staff have the rare ability to deliver most elements of construction in-house.
