In a construction industry that works to a very stringent contractual procedure, it has been very refreshing to find a contractor whose employees manage their works with the 1st priority being to deliver the job and are proactive in their approach to the ever evolving needs and requirements that we, as the principal contractor, ask of them. SJE are to be commended on their attitude to service whilst not compromising the satisfaction to produce ‘First time, one visit’ quality work, whilst also readily attending to any remedial needs with transparency. With more sub contractor’s with SJE’s philosophy to client needs, ther would be a far more smoother and progressive path to completion.
