"We all want building excellence. It's a quality that Hale and LABC Warranty both share and that is what we aim to deliver."  Matthew Hall - Site Manager

The key to achieving building excellence for JG Hale Construction is a combination of having the personal motivation to build a home to the highest standard and sharing that same passion with everyone involved in the build, including their warranty provider. "We all want building excellence. It's a quality that Hale and LABC Warranty both share and that is what we aim to deliver", Matthew Hall, Site Manager at JG Hale Construction.

Catching a potential issue is key to achieving high standards and avoiding unnecessary costs at the end of the development", Gerwyn Landrygan, Contracts Manager at JG Hale Construction.
