Meet the SHEQ Team


Following the recent appointment of Liam Byrnes to Health & Safety Manager with oversight on Environment and Quality we wanted to take the opportunity to introduce his team…


Liam’s team play a vital role within J M Scully and they are critical to the successful completion, close out and ongoing management of projects across the business.

Considering a large proportion of our projects are carried out within the Retail sector we consistently focus on a rapid turnaround and close-out of this information which for some of our clients is directly linked to final account close out and sign off as well.

They all do a great job in supporting our Delivery Teams across all our projects allowing them to focus on maintain high levels of customer satisfaction on everything we do.



J M Scully Appoint Head of Safety

J M Scully are proud to announce another key appointment to the business with Liam Byrnes joining our Senior Management Team in the Role of Health & Safety Manager.liam_byrnes

Starting in October 2015 Liam will take full control of the Health & Safety function and oversee our team on Environmental and Quality aspects as well.

Liam’s background is in the Asbestos Removal industry and he is a qualified Asbestos Surveyor, Analyst and Contracts Manager. He also trained others to remove asbestos safely. It was while working in this fiercely regulated construction sector, that he became fascinated in the wider Health and Safety field. He noticed that, while we are generally good at managing ‘safety’ risks, it’s often the ‘health’ risks that are harder to control, and so a real passion developed.

Liam believes that the best way to influence a positive safety culture is by working with people throughout the organisation, rather than against them. By engaging individuals personally and personably, ensuring regular, proactive and clear communication and by reinforcing this with meaningful personal development for all, his aim is to support all employees to reach their full potential – and to prove the old adage true: the most valuable assets we have are the people who work here.

Everything Liam does at JMS has safety from the start, and at the heart.


JM Scully build flagship £1m community church extension

Beacon ProjectJM Scully are proud to announce they are close to completing the highly awaited extension to St Mary’s Church in Ferndown, Dorset. Building started in January this year and is eagerly welcomed by church members and the local community as it extends facilities and ‘future proofs’ the church for the next generation – Building a Place of Belonging.

The extension links the existing church building and church hall and includes a new entrance foyer, café with meeting places and youth facilities. The car park will be reconfigured along with alterations to the existing church.

The development is designed let people “come just as they are” and experience a sense of welcome and belonging that is becoming so rare in our increasingly fragmented society. With that in mind JM Scully actively appointed local labour, suppliers and sourced local materials wherever possible in order to benefit the community as a whole.  The project has generated a high level of interest locally and JM Scully have run a number of ‘Open Days’ showing the public, church goers and school children around the site and sharing development news.

J M Scully have organised a topping out ceremony at 2.00pm on 10th July when the last roof tile will be fitted and Sarah Pix, the Rector of St Marys, will bless the new extension. The new Beacon Centre will be inaugurated by the Bishop of Salisbury on 3rd October 2015, a day of celebration and jubilance for all involved in this ambitious project.
