Attended by over 200 people, this was a huge success and showed the support we have from our operatives, clients and in-house staff. The talk covered some 'site basics' along with our policy review. Thank you to all who attended.

Cranbrook Continues to Grow

We have recently been awarded a multi-trade deal for the new phase of Cranbrook with Bovis Homes. We started out at Cranbrook some 3 years ago and have been a regular feature on site since. We are delighted to continue this relationship with Bovis Homes and Cranbrook. With the site itself being only a stones throw away it is an ideal location for ourselves.

A-Star Apprentice

We are delighted to announce the 2015 Apprentice of the Year is Adam Bolter. Adam has just completed his first year of the apprenticeship in ceramic tiling.

MJ Stevens Invest in New Tech

MJ Stevens have just invested in 15 new iPads for the supervisors and managment to use, this will allow all site plans, drawings, specification and contacts to be made available wherever we are on site. Added to this emailing and file sharing remotely will be straight forward. 

This creates a huge capacity of available information direct to the source. Allowing our supervision to snag-as-we-go with our checking system and pass drawings to operatives on site freely. This is a huge step forward in construction technology and one we want to keep at the forefront of.
