Great team-work is vital. As you’ll see if you click on the pictures below, our team is well established – and contractors we use have traded with us for many years. Everyone, whether part of the core team or a sub-contractor, knows standards must be high and is expected to be open minded about ways to obtain the very best results.
Jaques Construction has never tried to be a ‘cheap builder’. We believe in giving excellent value and a high standard of work that all parties can be proud of. Equally, we’ll happily discuss budgets and find ways of prioritising the important areas of the project.
We understand that most clients are keen to sign a contract. We believe a contract is something that’s signed and put in a drawer where it stays unless needed; neither Jaques Construction nor ANY of our clients has had to take the contract out of the drawer. And our clients will confirm we have a strong commitment to after sales, even years later – once you are a client of Jaques Construction, you remain so.
