Dave Cope…

It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of our dear friend and colleague, Dave Cope. Over his 39 years of service, Dave had been instrumental in the evolution of our company.

Dave joined Johns in December 1984 as a Quantity Surveyor and very quickly became a valued member of the team. He became a mentor to many of us throughout his career imparting his vast knowledge of the industry.

The senior management team welcomed Dave to the role of Director in the late 90’s, Dave excelled in his new role enjoying many successful years.

His presence will be sorely missed by all at Johns.

With reference to the above subsidence claim and repairs completed thru Johns of Nottingham and yourselves, I would like to thank you and your excellent staff, for all their hard work, patients and assistance, in completing the work at our home. The work teams, have completed their work in a professional manor, under difficult circumstances, due the our home still being occupied by ourselves and two dogs, plus furniture, these conditions hindered the pace of work due to having to work around people and furniture, making life very difficult for the team to complete their work. Your team assisted me in moving, replacing furniture to enable them to complete their daily tasks, along with trying to reinstate our home, into something liveable each evening. The decorators have done a wonderful job and I am very pleased with the finish of all my home, now it is completed. Again, thank you, please pass on my thanks to all your team, who have done you proud.

Managing two busy venues with one a listed building. I have personally found John’s of Nottingham to be a vital asset in maintaining and upgrading the site. I’ve never had doubt that they will deliver excellent workmanship and a professional attitude, be it a simple painting job, concrete flooring repair or a remodel and repair to detailed Victorian plasterwork. I have no reservations in recommending them as they have always delivered.
