RCP Developments Ltd. is a family run Chelmsford based building company undertaking a wide variety of projects from small extensions, refurbishments, new house building developments and more traditional contracts of barn conversions.

Established in 1975 by its founder Richard Penson, today the company is managed by Richard's sons – James and Russell. For over 35 years the majority of our work has been from recommendation. We have worked for many clients over the years who come back to us time and again.
