Welcome to Opal Developments

Here at Opal Developments, we have been working in construction for over 30 years, building 2, 3 and 4 storey houses and flats in Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire.

Opal Developments are registered with the LABC and Q Assure warranty providers and work alongside 3C Shared Services and Bedfordshire Building control.

Having built in conservation areas, near listed buildings and on very restricted sites in town centre locations where “just in time” deliveries are necessary due to lack of storage space.

We have built using standard foundations, deep foundations, driven and CFA pile foundations.

Opal Developments is managed and run by owners David and  Julie Ginn, who have over 30 years of experience in the construction industry. Since our inception, we have built a range of new build detached properties and the conversion of an office block into 20 flats in St Ives.

We’ve been building for over 30 years

You can see examples of some our developments below. For more details and images, select any of the projects from the Developments menu at the top of the page.


A development in the Bedfordshire village of Clifton, consisting of 3 large, detached 4 & 5 bedroom houses with annex
with associated soft and hard landscaping.

Working with the client, architects, engineers and the roofing manufacturer, we designed the roof to eliminate the steels,
which helped to keep the build within budget.


A development of 3 properties on a restricted access site in this village on the outskirts of Cambridge.

Opal Developments handled all the planning and co-ordination on this difficult site to allow the properties to be built to a build program in the minimum amount of time.

Gt. Gransden

A development of 9 Detached 3, 4 and 5 bedroom family homes built in 2 phases.

Opal have built a number of new home development schemes for Amber since 2017. The projects were completed on time and within budget. Dave, his team and his excellent choice of tradesmen made the whole process run smoothly . We have a scheme of flats under construction and are about to place another scheme with Opal.
