2015 AT JDL

Published 31/12/2015

Well, what a year 2015 has been in the construction industry.

JDL has taken full advantage of the booming economic climate in the construction industry in 2015. We now have 4 new projects to start in 2016.
As a company, we are proud to say our workload has been busier than ever across both the domestic and commercial sectors. We have completed all of our projects with excellent reviews from our customers.

During the year, domestically we have carried out 1 New Build, 5 Extensions, 3 Garage conversions as well as some general refurbishments and landscaping.

Commercially we have had our best year ever. We have refurbished 6 offices around Hertfordshire and London, securing 3 new facilities maintenance contracts, and 2016 does not seem like it is going to slow down.

As a company, we have secured full accreditations from Constructionline and CHAS, and taking on board a full time Health and Safety advisory company. This proves to our clients that we take Health and Safety very seriously, and will continue to do so. We are also delighted that we have outgrown our existing premises. We will be moving into bigger units early in 2016.

Director Jamie Logan said “2015 has been our best year ever to date, and 2016 looks even better. This is a credit to our team, who never let us down. We have had some excellent projects, as well as some difficult ones, but we have pulled together on all of them and completed them to our usual excellent standards. Thanks to all our clients in 2015, and we look forward to working with you all in 2016”

Mr Gadd – Weston, Hertfordshire

We heard about the quality of JDL’s work on the Weston village grapevine, so I asked Mr Logan to visit and prepare an estimate. He was very helpful and despite his youthful looks, I found him to very knowledgeable. He gave us good guidance as to alternatives to what alterations we were seeking.

The work done by JDL Construction included, knocking down an interior supporting wall and fitting the necessary steelwork. The removal and replacement of ceilings with altered lighting and repairing/restoring a very tired retaining wall in the front garden. All the work had been completed on schedule, if not quicker and slightly under budget. Mr Logan was on site at all times and his workers were cheerful and helpful. Jamie is willing to ensure that the job was done correctly and also that it met our needs. Overall an excellent job was done, we are very pleased. I have no hesitation in recommending JDL Construction to anyone requiring any building work however large or small.

Another exciting quarter for the JDL!

We are tendering for more work now than ever, and our establishment in the commercial sector is coming along nicely. The past 3 months has seen down difficult challenges for us Domestically and Commercially, but have come through with flying colours. From excavations and drainage 2.2m in the gound on a Domestic extension in Graveley. Hertfordshire, up to us securing a facilities management contract on a block of offices in a main high street in Baldock, Hertfordshire.

The future is also looking promising with tender opportunities coming from Local councils and authorities, Building surveyors and direct with companies over the south east to refurbish and maintain their buildings and offices. This is in conjunction with our Domestic works, which tend to slow down this time of year with the usual british weather and christmas quickly approaching.

We are also happy to announce that our new apprentice, Kai Brown is also enjoying his time here. His first couple of months have seen some challenging projects to say the least, but he is still with us and learning more and more every day.

Overall a great quarter for us all, with the hope that it continues into the new year.

Our company is growing and we have a new addition, Kai Brown has joined us on a 2 year Apprenticeship scheme. Apprenticeships are fantastic opportunities for young people, and we are delighted to have Kai on board.
Kai said ” This is a great opportunity for me to learn my skills for my career. JDL is a growing company, Jamie and the other guys always find the time to help me. I have always wanted to work in the construction industry, and I thank Jamie for giving me this chance.”

As a company we believe in the apprenticeship scheme, and feel they are an excellent way to build skills. In turn, it helps the company over a long period of time.

Our news- over the last 3 months have been an extremely exciting time for us at JDL. Carrying out works both domestically and comercially, the recent boom has kept us all very busy.

Domestically we have carried out 2 Home Extensions, a complete kitchen refurbishment with internal alterations, a garage conversion, along with a driveway and 2 rear hard landscaping projects.

Commercially, we have made some very good connections both locally and into the city. We have undertaken 2 office refurbishments, a complete strip of an office in Piccadilly. Along with a complete office overhaul and alterations. The installation of a new roller shutter for local van sales company, Stevenage vans, and our usual external maintenance contracts.

Director Jamie Logan said “the last 3 months have been excellent for us. With making some great connections and carrying out projects, we constantly recieve enquiries both locally and into the South East. Working as a main contractor, the different range of projects we are carrying out is excellent experience for our team, and our ever growing team of contractors.”

Lets hope the next 3 months are just as exciting!

Mrs Crompton – To schedule and on budget

“We had a considerable amount of work done by JDL Construction including demolition of an outside store, footings, wall construction for a 8 x 3.5 metre conservatory, knocking down an interior solid wall then inserting the necessary RSJ, removal with the replacement of ceilings, re-routing of drainage with the re-landscaping of the garden. All the work was carried out to the schedule with a budget. An excellent job was done in every respect. The guys on site were cheerful, helpful and willing to ensure that the job was done to our satisfaction. I would have no hesitation in recommending JDL to anyone requiring any construction work.”

Mr Bradshaw – The quote for the work was very competitive

“I have no problem with providing excellent feedback for the work of JDL Construction. They built a large extension for us in 2013; the team were professional, they arrived on time each day, they worked hard and were patient and understanding to our needs. The quotation for the work was very competitive compared to other builders who provided estimated costs.

The completed extension looks superb and has made a huge difference to my family’s day to day life. As with any large build project such as this, a few minor issues were discovered, which were quickly rectified at no additional cost. I have already recommended JDL Construction to friends and I will continue to do so.”

Mr Bradshaw – Stevenage

Mr More – JDL were great from start to finish

“JDL were great from start to finish. Jamie and his team were on site every day, they worked quickly and efficiently and got the job done sooner than estimated. They completed the Ground works, Drainage, Brickwork, Structural Steelwork and Scaffolding for my project, and all organised well. Very highly recommended!”
