On Site Team

Stuart Hobden ~ Head Foreman


Stuart has worked for J F Construction & Son Ltd since the company formed in 1983, his experience is invaluable and is a key member of J F's team working very closely with David on many aspects of the running of the firm.

As our main machine driver Stuart is hand's on at the first dig on any major Groundworks contract.

His loyalty and drive is second to none.

His patience is unquestionable when training other members of the team.


Phil Bailey ~ Foreman


Phil has worked for J F Construction & Son Ltd since leaving public sector work to join us in November 2006.

Phil's extensive knowledge of general groundworks, drainage and pavement works makes him a most valuable member of the team.


Trevor & Andrew Hobden ~ Bricklayers


Trevor has worked for J F on and off for around 15 years but became a permanent member of the team in May 2008 and Andrew joined us in April 2009 and make up our father and son Bricklaying team.

Trevor and Andrew pride themselves on their knowledge of local Flintworks and Stone walling techniques.

From Garden walling to Building a House, no job is too big or small for our elite bricklaying team!!


Simon Weller & Barry Wyatt ~ Labourers


Simon has been J F's main labourer for the past 7 years and whether making a gang of 2;1 teaming up with our bricklayers Trevor & Andrew or working alongside Stuart or Phil, Simon forms a key member of the team.

Our labourers have to work hard and their role is vital one in the running of a succesful building company.

In recent months Simon has been joined by Barry who is also proving to be a good labourer and is learning fast.
