"We utilised JLES Group’s Post Built Adoption Package on our legacy development in Milton Keynes which required the road & sewers being brought up to an adoptable standard including drainage, street lighting installation and final surfacing of the adoptable carriageway. We were very impressed with their ability to manage the various disciplines including their overall control from a Customer Care point of view. I’d recommend their services going forward."
