Who we are - History

Jerram Falkus Construction Limited is part of the Jerram Falkus Group whose origins lie with two companies:  William J Jerram Limited and Falkus Construction Limited

William J Jerram Limited was founded in 1884 by James William Jerram, trading under his own name.   The name was changed in 1934 when William J Jerram, his Grandson and the late Grand Father of the current Managing Directors, assumed control.

Over the years the company growth was steady, rather than spectacular, with an emphasis on quality rather than quantity.   Throughout its trading history William J Jerram’s activities dealt with the varied needs of the community.   A great variety of works were carried out but with a particular involvement in new building.

Falkus Construction Limited was founded in 1919 as Contractors in the City of London with premises in Folgate Street.   The company, whilst carrying out works further afield, concentrated most of it’s business within the City area gaining the high level of experience which exists to this day.

The grouping together of these two companies enabled each to compliment the other.  The resultant combined strength enables the Group to carry out a vast range of works in the knowledge that the management and technical experience necessary for this exists within the organisation.

The spectrum of work carried out embraces both new build and refurbishment of commercial, industrial, residential, educational, healthcare and other public sector buildings. Projects are carried out in both occupied and unoccupied environments.

Today the Group is a soundly based multi faceted organisation able collectively to offer a sound and well organised construction ability to any form of building.

Apart from carrying out projects using traditional contracting arrangements, the company is able to provide a design-build service for all types of building works.   Full ‘turnkey’ projects can be undertaken when relevant to a busy Client’s needs.

In addition to General Contracting the Company also manufactures and fixes high quality bespoke Joinery as part of Company Interiors projects and as Specialist Contractors.  Joinery manufacture uses both traditional and modern methods of fabrication and finishing and is carried out at the Company's extensive workshops in Shoreditch, Hackney.  This is probably the largest facility of its kind remaining in Central London.

Contracting works are carried out in most of the London Boroughs and throughout the South East of England.
