John Jarvis Construction falls into administration

A 135-year-old Kent based construction firm and its sister plastering company have fallen victims of the credit crunch after falling into recession.

John Jarvis Construction and plasterers Cartwrights have gone bust with the loss of 35 jobs.

John Jarvis had a turnover of around £4 million with notable builds including Tunbridge Wells Opera House and the Kent and Sussex Hospital.

Chairman Ernest Turley said: “The unforeseen impact of the credit crunch and its severe effects on the construction industry has made it impossible for John Jarvis and Cartwrights to survive.”
