James has worked in construction since he was 15 years old helping family members in during the summer holidays, this continued throughout his teenager years and during his holidays from university. On leaving Bath University James choose to qualify as a domestic gas engineer and undertook his commercial gas qualification and in 2013 went on to obtain FIA design and installation qualifications.
James started J T Edwards Ltd in 2010, in response to the changing needs of the education sector. His focus was to listen to the voice of new school academy’s. Initially, James worked as an engineer for individual academy’s and then increased the operation to a very small one desk office, it was from this point that other senior team members joined and continue to expand the business, help manage strategic partnerships and key consultants as well as multi-academy school trusts.
James’ focus and wish is to ensure the company stays strong during these turbulent times and when the world returns back to normal J T Edwards Ltd plans to invest further in the future of the business and the future of the communities that we serve.
