About Us

Create. Enhance. Sustain.

Welcome to J Sives Surfacing, we’ve been delivering quality road surfacing and civil engineering services across Scotland for over 35 years. We have a fantastic dedicated team who take pride in their work and deliver excellent service. The ethos that runs throughout our team of over 30 staff is to deliver the best solution and the very best price to you.

While size isn’t everything, it does set us apart from many other civil engineering companies. We’re of a size where we are more than happy to deliver those smaller projects that other companies aren’t interested in, but we’re also big enough to deliver large scale projects including, major retail parks across Scotland, university campuses, shopping centers, hotels, and hospitals. We also have a significant range of equipment which again allows us to do smaller more niche projects as well as larger industrial projects. Consequently, you only have to hire one company, instead of several to deliver your project.

It’s not just our impressive range of equipment that sets us apart but also the breadth of clients and organisations we work with which includes private residences, estate farms, Government, hospitality, the prison service, PetroChemical plants, large industries, ports, even great Scottish castles. We also have the appropriate accreditation and management systems in place to work in a variety of situations.

One of the aspects of our service that our clients tell us they appreciate is our pragmatic consultative approach. We take the time to understand what you want to achieve and then advise you on the best and most sustainable solution while maximising your budget. On many projects this can take time and thought, the result of which is that we leave every project, confident that we’ve delivered quality and value and that you’ll be happy with the results.

Helping you do your bit for the environment

We continually invest time and money to reduce our carbon footprint and source green solutions for our projects. For example, we offer Macrebur Modified Surfacing which is made from 100% waste plastics that would otherwise go to landfill or incineration.

And by planning each project carefully we work more efficiently, minimising our mileage by traveling direct to the site and having materials delivered rather than collecting them so we reduce our travel. All of these small actions add up and enable us to reduce our carbon footprint.

Caring for our team, community as well as your roads

We pride ourselves in investing in our team and community. We are a living wage company and offer continuous training and development opportunities to our team. We believe that by treating our team with respect and investing in them they will deliver a great service to our clients. This ensures the team is capable of making the right decisions and offering the right solutions when they have to.

In addition to supporting our team, we are also passionate about supporting our community. One of our community projects is working in a local school with children who have additional support needs, working with them on small construction projects as well as gardening and general life skills.

We have also taken part in a new initiative, the Build Your Future program, where we have gone into high schools to share our experiences of working in the construction industry and the opportunities it offers.
By investing in our people, they take care of your project.
