KJS specialise in traditional Cotswold stone buildings,
farmhouses and period properties.
We are a local construction firm that offer outstanding quality and capability synonymous with, and often undertaken by larger companies. We have an enthusiastic attention to detail and are knowledgeable and sympathetic to the needs of combining new with old, whilst retaining original heritage and integrity.
Always raising the bar
Skilled craftsmanship is at the heart of our organisation and the business’s 30 strong team of long term expert tradesmen and managers all know each other well and work effectively as one unit. Our entire qualified team take huge pride in their work and endeavour to finish every job to a consistent high specification.
We aim to define new standards to which many can only aspire.
Architecture starts when you carefully put two bricks together. There it begins.

Our ongoing investment in plant and ground working capabilities enables us in-house access to a comprehensive plant list of machinery and skills. Our self-sufficiency means that we can easily interchange both staff and machinery between any jobs in progress, providing rapid-response solutions. Ultimately, this means that time and costs are always kept to a minimum.
Good communication instils confidence
At the beginning of every development, we establish an office with a site foreman who is always on-site. Communication is constantly maintained between architects, suppliers, on-site management staff and tradesmen, limiting delays if amendments are made to plans or if problems arise.
Our experienced management team provide a link of understanding between architects and tradesmen.
By fully embracing the latest in communications and building technology our management team at KJS can be kept abreast of the current progress and specifications of each project.
We are sensitive to all issues which can arise during a development and endeavour to achieve a suitable harmony between us and the close environment.
We believe in maintaining a very hands-on approach to management of all our projects. Kevin Smith is confident that face to face, personal communication between KJS and development owners instils confidence and trust and allows for a smooth running and stress-free operation.
