full circle

With decades of collective experience in the ‘boom or bust’ construction industry, we believed we’d seen it all – but the unprecedented impact of the current global economic downturn has changed that: Finance is tougher to secure than ever before (and often at prohibitive rates); countless local and international projects have been axed (from Dubai World downward); and confidence levels have plummeted.

As the barometer of a healthy economy, there’s no doubt construction will lead the way out of this crisis but from artisans to architects, builders to suppliers, developers to investors, every segment of our industry has been affected – and, in the process, the business environment has been changed forever … and so have we.

JEDD’s key values of quality, safety, integrity, transparency and professionalism will never alter. However, as market needs have changed, we’ve taken a 360° review of our business and re-engineered it to meet them.

Now, counter to the trend of packaging businesses in independent, specialist silos that each cater for distinct aspects of a project, JEDD is getting back to basics. With diverse experience and expertise that cuts across the civil, industrial, retail, commercial and residential boundaries, JEDD is now combining its premium skills and resources to partner clients through every phase of the construction project life-cycle.

Although this seamless, integrated approach is standard for the industry’s major players, it sets JEDD apart in the mid-tier construction and property development markets. So too does our expectation that, going forward, the partnerships we build with our clients will last as long as the solutions we design, develop and bring to life for them.
