MJS Xmas Letter
With 2018 coming to a close, we are still being told good news. This time we have help Spitfire Bespoke Homes achieve Gold for the Best Development in the UK.
The WhatHouse? Awards judges commented: “Spitfire continues its inexorable rise, in terms of turnover, reputation and burgeoning brand awareness. Formed just seven years ago when it built just four homes, to pushing towards 200 homes in 2018 and a £100m-plus business. Spitfire has a great knack of identifying the right sites and then, in turn, recognising the design approach to take, to do full justice to the location and the local architecture. The housebuilder can do both traditional and contemporary, be it in a Regency spa town, or a Cotswolds village. Premium addresses in the likes of Henley and Ascot showcase large, detached residences with all the design flourishes and high specifications, while Clevedon Hall Estate, near Bristol, is a terrific architectural statement of intent in the grounds of an 19th-century manor.”
MJS Group Managing Director said of the awards ‘This fantastic award goes to show what can be achieved in the right environment and when we are working with a fantastic client such as Spitfire. A truly outstanding end product that all customers must be very happy with. Well done to them and the site team’.
Our scope of work in North Devon continues to grow with the latest addition being a contract with Newland Homes in Barnstaple. Barbican Walk is a select development of 3 and 4 bedroom houses, a scheme we are very excited to be working on and look forward to forging a new relationship with Newland.
Part of the MJS Group includes Kitchen fitting. This is another string to the bow of the carpentry division and we have most recently completed the stunning new kitchen at Cornwood Chase in Ivybridge for Larkfleet Homes. On offer in this exciting development is a range of two and three-bedroom detached and semi-detached homes to suit first-time buyers, growing families and families that would rather not grow any more. All of our homes come with a ten-year insurance-backed guarantee provided by LABC (LocaI Authority Building Control).
The group have been awarded a new multi trade site in Langport, Somerset. This site adds to our growing collection of work in Somerset for our Carpentry, Drylining, Painting and Tiling divisions showing the strength in depth we have here at MJS Group. A strong set up in Somerset making use of our Highbridge Depot allows us to take on work from Bristol across to Wincanton and across the levels. These 80 new plots provide our workforce with further continuation and years of work ahead.
Taylor Wimpey have awarded us with two new sites, one at Newton Abbot and the other at Exmouth. Having worked with Taylor Wimpey for a number of years it is pleasing to see they still value our work and continue to award new contracts.
At a recent Charity event held at Sandy Park, BDW hosted a fabulous Casino themed charity gala at which over £10,000.00 was raised. The event was well supported and we were delighted to attend.
Our drylining side has won the tender for an exciting new site in Bodmin for Persimmon Homes Cornwall. This new sites brings us back in to Cornwall in a big way, having worked a lot there in the past, recently we have been more successful North of the Tamar. The new contract is hugely welcomed and a site we are really looking forward to working on.
Our carpentry division continues it’s recent run off success by winning a brand new site for Larkfleet Homes SW in Ilton, Somerset. Ilton, near Taunton is a great location for us as a business and has seen a lot of work carried out by the Group in the past with our local labour. We are excited about this project with Larkfleet and continuing to broaden our workload with this up and coming builder in the area.
