K&J Building Contractors

The contracting arm of King & Johnston has carried out a varied range of projects since its formation in 1988. These include a health and fitness centre with a swimming pool, numerous new housing developments and we have also worked extensively for local authorities on education schemes, improving local schools and colleges, as well as health authorities upgrading hospitals and care centres.

As part of its commitment to the areas heritage King & Johnston has carried out restorative works at Rochester Castle and the Charles Dickens Museum.

We have designed and constructed an office complex in Larkfield, Kent. During 2009 we commenced our first development for West Kent Housing Association, a site of 15 units that were completed within 18 months.
