Phil Deakin, Site Manager at Jessops Construction said "Jessops prides itself in quality builds and this is no exception. I believe this retail park will complement the existing retail offer in Thorne. We are always delighted when that build completes earlier, particularly in retail where the clients have more time to complete their internal fit out."
Employers Agent David Limb, of Cynergi Ltd said "We have worked with Jessops Construction Ltd on a number of projects to date. During construction of the Thorne retail park, Jessops has proven that they are the contractor of choice by completing weeks earlier than anticipated whilst not compromising on quality. Cynergi would have no hesitation working on future projects with them again."
