First established in 1936, J Cheesmur & Sons has been based in Lewes, East Sussex since the 1960’s. Following a management buy-out in January 2009, the revitalised J Cheesmur & Sons (Lewes) Ltd has continued to improve and develop its team and, as a consequence, continues to enhance its reputation in the marketplace.

We undertake projects from across a wide range of sectors, including residential, education, health, heritage, commercial, industrial and leisure, as well as a number of term planned and reactive maintenance contracts, with a significant proportion of our turnover negotiated or secured on an open book basis. Totally committed to the ethos of partnering and collaborative working, we continue to work closely with our clients and their professional teams to ensure that quality projects are achieved to programme and budget.

Operating throughout Sussex and the South East, we employ over 45 full-time staff, including management and administrative support from our Cobbe Barns offices, near Lewes. In addition to our own trained and skilled craftspeople, we have a valuable resource in our established and experienced supply chain of sub-contractors and suppliers. We are firmly committed to the development and training of our own highly motivated staff and apprentices, who are encouraged to excel in their chosen trade and are fully supported by our experienced and qualified personnel.

We are proud to have been founding members of the TrAC (Training and Apprenticeships in Construction) initiative and also continue to support Sussex Education Business Partnership as well as Build East Sussex which supports the development and engagement of local businesses and SME’s in the construction sector.

As a Chartered Building Company, registered with Constructionline, CHAS and the Considerate Constructors Scheme, our ethos and reputation is based on the firm belief that every client and end user has the right to a quality product at all times whilst being able to appreciate the construction experience.
