SJ Solutions project managed a new build for John Shelton, of which the contract total was £158k. They were fantastic! They walked us through the whole process, from architect drawings to health and safety ramifications and navigating the tender process. They managed any problems with the contractor directly where they could and involved the school in bigger decisions where needed, the school to focus on teaching and learning. SJ Solutions have a gift of knowing what the customer wants and needs and an even more impressive track record of delivering what they promise… going over and above to ensure the job gets done to an immaculate standard.
