Our Approach

John Paul Construction is a forward-looking building and civil engineering contractor who provide a comprehensive suite of construction services and innovative engagement solutions to meet the specific needs of our clients across a wide range of market sectors.


We are one team with a shared vision, guided by our core values that have shaped our culture, guided our decision-making and governed our relationships with colleagues and clients over the years.


John Paul Construction is a value-driven company; we deliver enhanced value at all stages in the construction process by;

  • Understanding our clients’ needs so we can focus on what really matters
  • Having the people with the skills and expertise that fully understand the construction process and who can quickly identify the key cost-drivers on a project, assist in developing cost-efficient alternative proposals whilst at the same time maintaining quality and functionality
  • Our intrinsically collaborative approach and strong supply chain relationships
  • Providing a safe, productive working environment for all


Our Project First Approach ensures that collaboration and positive interactions are at the forefront of how we do business.


With this approach, options such as pre-construction services agreements, early contractor involvement, design-build and management contracting have proven to be very successful in providing our clients with innovative solutions in terms of budget, programme and quality.  These options are in addition to the more traditional arrangements with which we have successfully delivered hundreds of projects over our 70 years in business.


Through our Project First Approach;

  • We offer a fully integrated service, centred on client needs, that will provide our client the very best construction experience they have encountered to date in their business
  • We offer a full turnkey-solution by procuring, installing and commissioning all specialist fittings and equipment in parallel with the construction fitout, providing a fully functioning project for the end-user at handover
  • We work in collaboration with the client and their team to deliver enhanced value-engineering and project innovation for the benefit of the project
  • Our tried and tested management systems and committed supply chain relationships enable us deliver fast-track programmes from procurement to detailed project planning and execution, underpinned by our culture of continuous risk identification, assessment and mitigation
  • We ensure a safe and productive working environment for all
  • We deliver defect-free and client-ready projects at handover; this allows our clients to occupy facilities immediately on completion of construction and commence operations in the shortest possible timeframe
  • Our commitment to sustainable construction practices ensures that we minimise the impact of our activities on the environment and maximise the social and economic benefits to the communities in which we work
  • We have extensive experience delivering projects to accredited and certified building environmental design standards, such as BREEAM, LEED etc.
  • We deliver exceptional quality by use of innovative construction solutions, pioneering the widespread use of BIM, Lean construction and other innovative systems on our projects that enable us to consider off-site manufactured elements and modular construction when appropriate
  • We are a financially robust company with strong cash reserves and excellent credit ratings ensuring a financial and operational capability that provides our clients peace of mind
  • We pledge certainty of delivery to our clients through robust risk management, the technical proficiency of our teams and our extensive experience of complex and challenging construction projects
