About us

HvB Development was founded by Hugo van Bilderbeek (BA, MA, MCIOB, CMgr FCMI) who has successfully built and developed in prime and super-prime London for more than 20 years. With the experience of developing his own projects that have outperformed the market, an increasing demand grew for HvB to offer this service to private clients.

HvB has developed an extensive supply chain of trusted subcontractors and the finest craftsmen to ensure the highest quality of service and finishes for each project.

The founder of HvB Development, Hugo van Bilderbeek, grew up in Aberdeen, Scotland.  In 2001, after graduating from University in Edinburgh, he moved to the USA to start his career in property and worked as a real estate manager.

In 2003, he moved to London to take up an opportunity to work in property development.  During this time, he gained experience managing all aspects of property development, carefully refining his skills from deal sourcing and origination, to forecasting, budgeting, analysis and building and managing supply chains.  During this period, he delivered over 50 developments in prime central London.

It was a natural progression for Hugo to create his own construction management company in 2014, working on prime refurbishment contracts. Since then, HvB Development has successfully built a strong reputation and relationships with its clients, successfully delivering projects across London’s premium residential locations.
