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.

New Multi-Trade Contact with Taylor Wimpey

Today we were successful in winning the carpentry and drylining contracts for Taylor Wimpey at Hele Park, Newton Abbot. Hele Park is a development of over 300 new build homes by Taylor Wimpey for couples and families of all sizes. Our multi-trade contract will allow a flowing build and high quality workmanship required on the site. 

Newton Abbot is an area we have worked in for a long time and have a good, large base of operatives.

We are very much looking forward to working with Taylor Wimpey on this exciting new project.
