As JDL mark their 11th year of trading, we catch up with their Office Manager Michaela Smith to find out why there is such a buzz around the organisation at the moment.

The past few months have been great for us as a company thanks to the new contracts we’ve secured and, of course, our new recruits. In August we won a new contract to supply the mechanical installation package for 94 new flats at Queen’s Gardens in Hull. The development sees the old police station being converted into new flats, by adding two more storeys on top of the existing building.

August was a really busy month for the company as we also secured a contract to work on the York Community Stadium. The new site will consist of an 8,000-capacity stadium, a gym, swimming pools, a sport hall, dance studios, a 13-screen cinema, retail units and much more, and JDL have been given the contract to work on the three-storey leisure building.

We are also currently working as subcontractor for SES Engineering, on an 18-storey student accommodation building in Leeds and last week we were awarded with a Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) award from Kier (the main contractor). The award was presented to JDL to recognise the team’s excellent onsite performance in respect to SHE compliance. This is the result of outstanding project management and a site team which is always striving to work to the highest of standards.

To assist with all of this new work, we have also welcomed many new recruits to the company; our apprentice team has grown from four to seven people, we have a new Logistics and Warehouse Manager and a new Plumbing and Heating Minor Works Manager, as well as a new Administration Assistant. We hope that our ever-growing team will continue to strengthen JDL as a company and help us to secure more new clients, as well as reinforcing our relationships with our existing customers.
