About Us

JML Contracts is an award winning, family-owned company with over 25 years’ building and civil engineering experience and expertise. We are based in Central Scotland and carry out contracts across the UK.

We pride ourselves in having a committed, hardworking and highly skilled team across all aspects of the business. This allows us to deliver the best possible service to our clients every time, be it a bespoke or standard SIPs house design, a gabion retaining wall, groundworks or a hydro scheme.

JML Contracts specialises in building with Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) – a relatively new, highly insulated and energy-efficient house building construction technique.

A very popular construction method in northern Europe, JML is one of the original producers of SIPs houses in Scotland. We have forged an enviable reputation for designing and engineering highly efficient SIPs kits in our dedicated factory and distributing them to remote areas and isles of the UK.

We are uniquely able to offer clients a bespoke service which includes our own Passive House-certified SIPs architect, engineers, project management, full manufacturing facility and installation teams.

JML Contracts’ SIPs houses are all engineered and supplied using panels which are certified by the British Board of Agrément (BBA) and used for both the UK custom build and self-build market, with plans underway for a number of SIPs developments.

In 2015, JML Contracts teamed up with Architeco to create a range of stylish, affordable, low energy SIPs houses – Caber House (www.caberhouse.co.uk).

These two, three and four bedroom house designs have adopted a ‘fabric first’ approach, using optimum SIP dimensions and design to achieve Passive House suitability. Clients can achieve beautiful, stylish homes in a very quick timescale. Not only do they look good, but they are also extremely energy-efficient with very low running costs.

See our Caber House section for details on the SIP standard house designs we offer.

Our passion for sustainability is reflected in the civil engineering work we do within the renewables sector. We offer complex concreting and structural services to large-scale hydroelectric and wind farm schemes.

We have also built an enviable reputation for the installation of gabion retaining systems for road building, landscaping and house building. We are one of the few companies in Scotland that does this.

We also offer complete foundation and ground works packages for new build homes, handling all aspects of the works from access roads, basements, retaining structures, external works and service connections.

Over the past year we have seen tremendous growth in our Civils and Landscaping division and are extremely proud of the ISO Accreditation 9001, 14001 and 18001, which we have worked hard to gain this year.
