What Makes Us Different

At John Perkins Construction, we pride ourselves on being different from the construction industry stereotype. The directors’ ethos, which is driven down through the business, is the desire to work in collaboration, as part of a team.

This allows us to deliver for our clients the best project possible within the set parameters of the scheme. By working in an open and flexible way at all times, we’re able to make the whole process smoother and more satisfying for all parties.

We combine the flexibility and personal touch of an SME with the systems, processes and skills of a larger regional contractor.

Recognition from Awards Bodies

We are fortunate to have been recognised by a number of awards bodies over the last few years.

At the Considerate Constructors Scheme National Site Awards, we’ve picked up Gold Awards for three years running, culminating in our winning the 2018 Most Considerate Site (£1m–5m category) accolade. This is the scheme’s top award and covers the whole of the UK. We received it for our community outreach and considerate behaviour during the extension of Hutton CE Primary School.

We are two-time Building Safety Group award winners (2017 and 2018), and finalists in the LABC Building Excellence Awards (2018 and 2020), among other accolades.

Excellent Site Teams and Resources

One of our greatest strengths lies in putting together the right teams for projects, drawing from our highly-experienced staff.

These teams are bolstered by expert guidance from our board, including David Parsons (Director of Pearce Construction and Building Safety Group), and from external advisors, including David Dursley (Regional Manager, Building Safety Group).

The ability to rely on a first-rate community of freelancers with specialist skill-sets also gives our business a further depth of knowledge and support for when additional needs arise.

Working on Complex and Sensitive Sites

Working on complex, sensitive and ‘live’ sites is a matter of course for us. We consider it one of our strengths.

Our extensive experience of keeping disruption to a minimum, while also upholding excellent Health and Safety during construction works is backed up by our excellent track record with the Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS).

You will note from this graph of our recent CCS evaluations that we have consistently been able to achieve scores in the 35–45 point range (Very Good–Exceptional).

Community Engagement

A huge part of the reason we score so highly with the Considerate Constructors Scheme is that we seek to engage with the community on every project.

We do this by conducting site tours, holding workshops for students, and generally inviting local people to participate in the works.

We get involved with the Bristol, Bath and South West communities on a broader basis, particularly through supporting young people.

We continually seek to encourage apprentices in our supply chain, and provide work experience opportunities wherever possible. Our directors also give up their time to attend careers fairs, give school presentations, and conduct mock interviews with local students.

Our Managing Director, Rupert Perkins, sits on CITB Industry Funding Committee, advising on the Skills and Training Fund, and he is part of the Advanced Construction Skills Centre (South Bristol) Steering Group, helping to boost interest in construction careers in the local area and increase the number of pathways into the industry, especially for those most in need of opportunity in the community.

Client Satisfaction

In order to ensure we are delivering high levels of client satisfaction (and to find ways of further improving), we gather customer feedback for all our major projects.

The bar chart below demonstrates average customer scores from our most recent clients. An overwhelming number of clients said that they would recommend John Perkins Construction and would use the company again.

We hope that these statistics speak louder than any claims we could make about ourselves:
