Facilities Team Leader, University of Edinburgh

“Prof Lindsay Paterson (Head of Subject – Social Policy) is the academic who expressed his praise for the handling of the pod conversion project.  He mentioned to me privately as well, that he was pleased with the professionalism of workers on site and the care they took to ensure minimal disruption.

My team has had no complaints about the works and have been really pleased with the communication coming from SJS and the level of co-operation we’ve received”.




William Darling

Facilities Manager, National Galleries of Scotland

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the high standard of workmanship carried out on this project at the National Galleries of Scotland. Please pass on my regards to Bruce Gibson who has been a pleasure to work and very knowledgeable in his discipline”.



Dr Graham Hawley

Headmaster, Loretto School

“SJS added considerable value to the project and they exceeded our expectations.   The contractual elements were completed on time and to budget but there were so many other positive additions including improvements to the design brief which have added increased functionality to the project.  Nothing was too much trouble and all the SJS staff had a refreshing ‘can do’ attitude.  Craig Murie led an outstanding team of outstanding contractors”.


Bronia SF Sledz

Head of Customer Services, Napier University

“I went up to Craiglockhart to have a look at the work in the Student Hub (1/41 and the ‘Glass Box’). I am absolutely delighted with the work, it looks really professional and the finish is excellent – many thanks for co-ordinating, please pass my thanks on to the contractors for a job very well done”.

Gary Logue

Director, Axiom Project Services

“I write to thank you for your assistance on a “first class” job. Your team have been one of the best I have worked with and all the Axiom staff have been impressed with Alex, Derek and Innes.
What we found really impressive was the quick requests and great rapport with Alex Small and the on site management / initiative taken by Derek Welsh. Derek has been an impressive communicator with our team, the landlord and other direct subcontractors.

This was a personal project and you have taken the pain out of a difficult job.
Thank you again for your care and attention”.
