The company was founded by the current Managing Directors Grandfather Jack Jones in 1910 and has remained a family run business and is now in its fourth generation. The company is operated by four family descendants namely Keith Jones, Gill Jones, their son Paul and daughter Kate.
Our success over the years has been built on the expertise, knowledge, experience and skills of our dedicated team. The majority of our team have been with the company for many years and which enables us to maintain excellent working relationships with all of our clients.
We are an accredited member of the NHBC and all of our residential new builds will be independently surveyed during the course of construction by NHBC who will issue their Certificate upon completion of the home. NHBC is the UK’s leading independent standard-setting body and provider of warranty and insurance for new homes. They work with the house-building industry to raise the standards of new homes and to provide protection for homebuyers in the form of Buildmark warranty and insurance.
We are also registered with both LABC Warranty, an alternative new home warranty provider and Considerate Constructors Scheme which provides a code of practice which commits us to care about appearance, respect the community, protect the environment, secure everyone’s safety and value our workforce.
