What to consider when appointing construction companies

Construction in the UK is an industry that is experiencing growth, as investors continue to find value in real estate projects. Statistics from the Office for National Statistics show that by the close of Q3 2020, the industry had experienced a month-on-month growth of 2.7% in new work along with a 3.4% growth in repair and maintenance work, in a fifth consecutive month of growth. Clearly, now is a good time to invest in construction/real estate. If you are planning a construction project of any kind, from commercial to residential, one of your prime concerns will likely be choosing the best of the many available construction companies to work with.

What are the Features of Great Construction Companies?

While the UK’s strong construction industry regulatory regime means that there are generally high levels of quality across the industry, some construction companies still stand apart from the rest. If you are looking to find the best one, here are the factors to consider:

1. History

A strong history implies a track record of service delivery and adaptability. If there is one key indicator of the level of quality you can expect to receive on your construction project, it is the track record of the construction firm. At Jerram Falkus, we have existed for over a century, thanks to the solid foundations upon which this company was built, and have amassed a wealth of positive client experiences in that time, with visible projects that are a testament to our capabilities. 

2. Expertise

Larger-scale construction often requires a mix of competencies. At Jerram Falkus, our capabilities and experience span over a wide array of project types including: Education, Housing, Healthcare, Heritage and Sport & Leisure. We are able to deliver the highest quality of service across these varying sectors, and across projects of varying complexity, as the Jerram Falkus brand comprises three core businesses–Jerram Developments, Jerram Falkus Construction Ltd, and Falkus Joinery

3. A strong Team

At Jerram Falkus, we have a low staff turnover and employ a team of approximately 100 staff who are strongly educated in the values this company was founded on. The end-result is a business that takes the long-view, creating the best possible experience for every client stakeholder, and delivering enduring quality, in everything we do. We provide consistency where the team responsible for your project from day one, will be the team still involved at the completion
