Meet The Team

Managing Director

Perry Duffy

I have always been interested in building and adding the wow factor to a property, whether it be for myself, my family and friends or our fantastic clients. My career in construction started at a young age, I learnt a lot across the years, honing my skills whilst deciding the direction I wanted to take. I got into renovating houses as a bit of a side project or hobby, after many flips and some new build projects, I finally decided to take the leap and formed HD Developments. The aim was to build a reputable construction company based on integrity and a true passion for what we do. Along the way, other businesses have sprung up like Aqua Spa and Leisure, HD Outdoor Living, HD Scaffolding, and it occurred to me that the opportunity to merge the businesses into one group would allow us to stand out from the crowd and offer a truly unique turnkey solution to our clients. The HD Living Group can now take care of your construction project from design through to completion, covering all aspects of outdoor living too such as garden design and landscaping, outdoor kitchens, garden rooms, hot tubs and swim spas. And the mission? Just as it was on day one: to build a company that is trusted within the community and takes pride in continuously delighting our customers.

Hobbies: Kite surfing, daddy duties

Site Foreman

Nick Hennessy

My name is Nick, I am a carpenter by trade with the best part of 35 years of experience under my belt. I’m not sick of it yet, as I still like being on the tools today.

​I have been with HD in one form or another since the very beginning and for the last 10 years or so, I have taken on the role of site foreman. It is my job to take care of our on-site teams, keeping everyone motivated and focussed to ensure we stay on track and deliver each stage of your build on time. My role with the HD Living Group will be much more of the same, you can expect to see a lot of me on site throughout your whole project.

​Hobbies: When not at work, you’ll find me on the golf course or out walking the dog with my wife and kids.

Project Sales Manager

Laurence Hookway

Bio: My background is in commercial kitchen sales for hotels and national restaurant groups, overseeing national roll-outs of new equipment or working with clients to spec their kitchen and source the right equipment. The suit and tie was never really me, so I jumped at the opportunity to join the HD Living Group as a Project Sales Manager in April 2020.

Whether you want to work with us on a building project, invest in a spa, garden room or outdoor kitchen it is very likely that we will be in regular contact, from initial meeting through to design, delivery and completion. I like to work with our clients in a consultative manner, listening and discussing your requirements in detail then coming up with the perfect solution.

​Hobbies: When I’m not at work, you’ll find me spending time with my wife and two children or training at my local Jiu-Jitsu club.

Executive Personal Assistant

Timea Nemeth

I am Timea, but please call me Timi. Hungarian born, my adventure in the UK started 11 years ago, which I still vividly remember today as such an exciting moment. Throughout the years I have worked predominantly in the hospitality industry as a manager in luxury hotels. After a short period working for my brothers business, I discovered a new love for personal assistant style duties so decided to change careers. My life has shifted and I have now been a PA for the last 4yrs. I joined HD Living Group as an Executive PA a year and half ago and I am very excited for the new projects we have coming up.

​Hobbies: Keeping fit and healthy, cooking for friends and family

Assistant Manager: Supply Chain and Contracts

Barry Chapman

Hi, my name is Barry, my role at HD Living is very much an all-encompassing “assistant manager” type of role, but primarily involves sourcing the best quality materials at the best possible prices, as promptly as possible. After commencement of your project, you’ll see me pretty much on a daily basis, as I pop in to liaise with foremen and all tradespeople to monitor progress and remain on top of material requirements so as to keep the job moving, minimising lost time due to unavailability of materials. These visits will also serve contact point for you, the customer, to ask any questions or anything – I’m happy to help in any way I can! I’m very much a local boy – have lived in the area my whole life. I’ve been in and around the construction industry for 15 + years now, most of that time as a qualified electrician. After an extended break following the birth of my son, I was beyond excited when I had the conversation with my long time friend Perry about joining him and the HD Living group, and the rest, as they say, is history…..

Hobbies – Gym/keep fit, spending time with my family, letting my dog take me for a walk!

Excellent company in every way. I'd been considering a hot tub for some time, but had been taking ages deciding whether or not to go for it, and if so which one!! Was invited to try a couple of different models by Lawrence and his team at their lovely showroom, and after having my questions answered very thoroughly, we plumped for a Legend 7. The purchase and installation were a breeze, and I'm so glad I chose this spa, and even more so that I chose Aqua Spa to supply it. The after sales service they provide is also second to none. It's fantastic to have a company that cares about it's existing customers as much as it does potential new ones, so thanks very much indeed Lawrence and team!!

What an amazing service, I contacted the guys at Aqua Spa and explained my situation and Laurence came over that afternoon. Since then, he and Josh have been over a few times and serviced and totally sorted out all the issues with the hot tub. They are professional, courteous, clearly know their business and fun, I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Really impressed with our hot tub from Aqua Spa and Leisure. Can't recommend them enough, they were so accommodating and went out of their way to make sure everything went smoothly on the day. Also their aftercare has been brilliant, they are patient and always seem happy to help with my questions.

Thanks to all the team for our lovely hot tub! We purchased an ex hire tub and are really pleased with the quality. Sophia kept us updated on our order throughout, having stored it for us for a while due to garden work. Site survey and set up all professionally handled. Thank you, we've already recommended to others!

These guys where top notch from 1st contact to delivery and installation. Everything was explained clearly & communication was always good. Since having our hot tub installed a few weeks ago, we have been it almost everyday. I would highly recommend them if you are looking for a hot tub. Very good value compared to others.
