The Datum Group is a leading national contractor based in Hertfordshire and operating nationwide.

Since its inception in 2016, The Datum Group has developed from a small main contractor into a multi-divisional construction group consisting of construction, joinery, electrical and plumbing divisions.

The business currently works predominantly on high end residential and student accommodation projects.

This transformation has happened as a result of our business acquiring established, skilled tradesmen in these specialist areas; people we trust to deliver on quality and people who we would want working in our own homes, and the high emphasis the business places on the quality of its workmanship, transparency with clients and in turn, repeat and referred work.
