Welcome to Nexus

Nexus is a leading provider of essential infrastructure services to the UK housebuilding and commercial sectors.

The Group comprises two businesses: Tamdown, a provider of specialised infrastructure services; and TriConnex, which designs, installs and connects utility networks to properties on new residential and commercial developments.

What we do

Established in 1976, Nexus operates through two wholly-owned businesses:

Tamdown provides a range of specialised infrastructure and engineering services to the UK housebuilding and commercial sectors. Services include carrying out earthworks, remedial work, building highways, substructures and basements, creating drainage systems, as well as constructing reinforced concrete frames. The business has a well-established market position having been in operation for 40 years and currently counts among its customers a number of blue-chip companies and nine of the top ten largest UK housebuilders. Tamdown’s operations are focused on the South East of England and London.

TriConnex designs, installs and connects gas, electricity and water networks and, more recently, fibre, on new residential and commercial developments. TriConnex was established in 2011 to take advantage of deregulation in the utilities market with the goal of being recognised as the UK’s leading independent provider of utility connections to new developments. TriConnex’s current areas of operation include the South East and South West of England.
