The directors Peter Joynt and Peter Cook were invited to find a solution to the school’s need to replace dilapidated temporary accommodation which housed our Modern Foreign Language department. The school had already explored ways to knock down the old hutted classrooms and erect a traditional building in their place but the amount of funding and time slot available was insufficient to move the project forward.
After frank discussions about what the school needed and budget available, Joynt Construction introduced a totally innovative and exciting idea, which would exactly match the requirements of the school, while working within the budget and timescales available. Not only was their solution a dramatically different concept to the usual school building projects, but would be for approximately one third of the cost and with their commitment to complete the project in 11 weeks of coming onto site.
Without their sheer determination and excellent project management, I feel this would not have been possible. With severe and unusual weather conditions during June when the foundation work was being completed, it presented a challenge to an already tight deadline.
Throughout the project, Peter Joynt kept the school informed of each stage and their Site Manager ensured that the building programme did not fall behind, addressing and resolving issues as they arose. We were delighted that the building was ready, as promised for the start of term on 1st September and both staff and pupils are thrilled with their lovely bright, new building which accommodates 6 classrooms, 2 offices, toilets and a server room. It was completed within budget allocations. The Governors and the Local Authority are extremely pleased with the result and much interest has been prevalent from neighbouring schools. I would strongly recommend Joynt Construction as Project Managers to other organisations. Their professional approach, outstanding customer care and sound knowledge of the construction industry was evident throughout our building project.”Mrs. Ann Scales School Business Manager

Now that the substantive refurbishment and refit works of our offices is nearing completion, it is appropriate for me to extend my thanks to you for this undertaking.
Much of the work has been done efficiently and ahead of schedule and budget. Apart from the quality of finish, what impressed me most was the empathy that your people had with local office conditions. Wherever possible, care was taken to carry out noisy work out of office hours and at all times you would never thought such major work was going on.
The quality and experience of Joynt Construction work here speaks for itself. I would not hesitate to recommend Joynt Construction to any of my colleagues, both AIG and further a field.

Joynt Construction have served American Express successfully for many years on a variety of projects from the fitting out of travel shops to major office refurbishment both in the USA and abroad. The quality of their tender specifications, drawings and contract conditions together with their project management and cost control expertise have assured American Express that their projects are completed on time and within budget to a very high standard. I therefore highly recommend Joynt Construction as Project Managers for small to large refurbishment projects both in the USA and abroad.

We have been associated with Joynt Construction Ltd for some time being involved on a variety of projects together including major refurbishment works where Joynt Construction have supplied tender information, drawings, specifications etc for incorporation into legal documentation. Also, they have supplied floor plans and location plans for leases and ancillary documentation. They have also supplied support for the obtaining of planning permissions and building regulations consents whether ahead of or retrospective to the works carried out. They have also supplied support for the compliance issues arising from the fire regulations, asbestos at work regulations and other statutory requirements.
We find them to be user-friendly, reliable, efficient and professional in all their dealings.
