Construction Services launched in NSW and QLD

Johnstaff has launched its Construction Services offering in NSW and QLD following the acquisition of J&T Group in July 2018. J&T Group, led by Managing Director Simon Roberts, has provided professional construction services in the Pharmaceutical, Health and Education/Research sectors in NSW since 2014.

Simon, who has over 25 years’ experience in the construction industry working with both tier 1 and 2 contractors, will be supported by Johnstaff’s Discipline Leader for Construction Services, Sam Gill, who has relocated to Sydney to assist in firmly establishing the offering in this market. The Construction Services team will trade under the Johnstaff brand.

Since the acquisition of J&T Group, Johnstaff Construction Services NSW has secured a number of significant Pharmaceutical and Health commissions in metropolitan and regional NSW.

New Office Locations

Having outgrown our previous home in Pitt Street, our NSW team recently relocated to 9 Castlereagh Street following an intensive refurbishment by the Johnstaff Construction Services team to transform the existing dark and drab space into a fit-for-purpose facility for our 60+ employees. Spread over an entire level, the space provides a combination of front-of-house meeting areas and back-of-house collaboration zones, as well as large open plan working areas for Johnstaff's ever-expanding NSW business unit. Borrowing from the open-plan 'Family Room' concept adopted in Johnstaff's Victorian office, the NSW office incorporates a centrally-located breakout zone which encourages staff collaboration and socialisation between the multiple disciplines. The works were completed in just 5 weeks and Johnstaff's Construction Services team worked closely with the support teams to ensure a seamless transition.

The Johnstaff WA team also moved into a new, modern office at 2 Mill Street Perth.  The CBD location has been warmly received by our staff and clients.  Clients enjoy coming to our office for meetings and with our Zoom rooms fully operational, it has significantly improved both intracompany and intercompany communications.
