The Plant

The quality and reliability of the plant is fundamental to the success of JC&C.


Recent investment of over £750,000 demonstrates a commitment to be at the forefront of technological advances in the industry, while excellent relationships with major hire operations ensure that cutting edge, cost effective plant options are always available to clients.

For example, the use of highly specialised semi- automated pipe lifting machinery has made the installation process much safer and quicker.

From equipment specifically designed to operate in confined spaces, to large scale machines that undertake extensive excavation and lifting works, the varied plant can deliver a wide range of projects, including:

Drainage works – from deep excavation to internals.
External works – from reduced levels to completed paving.
Foundations – from excavation to finished slab.

A fully equipped workshop and a mobile team of skilled mechanics ensure that this fleet is kept in excellent working order and is safe to use.This approach keeps equipment operational and on site, avoiding delays. Members of this team visit all sites weekly, servicing everything from small hand tools to heavy plant machinery and provide inspection reports to clients for site records.

JC&C builds close professional relationships and works in partnership with suppliers, helping to achieve the smooth delivery of the projects undertaken.
