Main Contracts

J Coffey Main Contracts successfully delivers both traditional and Design & Build projects ranging from £1 million to £25 million in the following sectors: Healthcare, Research, Industrial, Commercial, Education, Residential, Amenities, Retail, Leisure and Community.

We are renowned for completing on time, producing outstanding quality and effective cost management through adopting a professional ‘hands on’ management approach to ensure our Client’s expectations are met, and wherever possible, exceeded.

The service we provide commences at the conceptual phase of the project where we are pleased to provide buildability and commercial advice which continues throughout the procurement process, whether tendered or negotiated, to ensure that our transparent approach produces a safe and optimum build and culminates in a successful project delivery back to the Client team.

Our year on year growth is testament to our successful track record of project delivery, often from repeat Clients and Consultants who appreciate our collaborative approach.

Collaborative Approach – We consider ourselves to be a primary stakeholder in the development process. Our ambition is to engage with new technologies and Value Engineering where appropriate to fulfil our Client’s demands and optimise project budgets without comprising on quality. Our talented and experienced team is focused on delivering outstanding legacies for our Clients. We implement solutions to create innovative designs, align quality and efficient construction processes that enhance the project outcomes for our Clients, end users and the local community.

Independently accredited Health, Safety, Quality, Environmental and Energy Management Systems – Our project management approach is underpinned with robust Health, Safety, Quality, Environmental and Energy Management Systems that is audited to confirm compliance with the highest construction sector standards: ISO45001 (UKAS), ISO9001 (UKAS), ISO14001 (UKAS) and ISO50001, CHAS and Constructionline Gold. More recently, the RoSPA Awards Adjudication Panel have awarded J Coffey the RoSPA President’s (12 consecutive Golds) Award for Health & Safety.

In-house structural solutions – We have in-house resources to tackle the most unique and challenging structural elements within any project. This capability provides us with greater control and access to resources throughout the delivery of the project, which are often undertaken in landlocked, occupied buildings and live estates which all operate under a variety of restrictive working and secure conditions.

BIM Capacity – J Coffey Main Contracts has in-house Building Information Modelling (BIM) capability for creating and managing information on our construction projects across the project life cycle. BIM data can be used to illustrate the entire building life-cycle, from inception and design to demolition and materials reuse as well as checking quantities. BIM brings together all of the information about every component of a building, in one place. BIM makes it possible for us to access information for any purpose, for example, to integrate different aspects of the design more effectively. In this way, risks are reduced and abortive costs minimized.

Nurturing lifelong sustainability – During the design and construction process, we aim to minimise the environmental impact of each project and strive to deliver energy efficient, low carbon buildings that fulfil the highest BREEAM accreditation available.

Net Zero Carbon emissions – We are committed to Pledge to Net Zero which covers our sites and construction activities including embodied emissions of construction materials purchased. We also support Global Theme for World Environment Day annually.

Social Value – Engagement with the wider community is an important part of the company’s ethos and this is supported by a co-ordinated and consistent programme of wider community engagement to enable us to play our part in enhancing the life of the local communities economically, culturally, and environmentally. We promote and contribute to economic, cultural, and social advances through the accessibility of innovation, skills, and expertise. The expertise and knowledge of our staff informs and advises a wide range of local organisations including industry, government agencies, non-governmental organisations and community groups locally, nationally, and globally.

Health & Wellbeing – We promote the importance of investing in the health and wellbeing of our staff by providing a physical and social environment which is conducive to teaching, learning, living and working. We foster an ethos associated to Fairness, Inclusion & Respect (FIR) towards all employees. In addition to meeting all legal requirements, we will take a proactive approach to workplace wellbeing by ensuring that mechanisms are in place to prevent workrelated occupational health injuries and to promote good health amongst the workforce.

Building Mental Health Charter – We are committed to supporting the Building Mental Health Charter which is a way for construction organisations to promote awareness and understanding of mental health, lowering stigma and supporting employees. We also support many charities focused at supporting construction workers.
