Dan Jacobs

Working in the Carpentry and Joinery trade since 1994 and progressing through Level 3 City & Guilds Carpentry & Joinery as a Cabinetmaker, Dan has too many credentials for paragraphs so here they are!

Dan's work is everything to him so he decided to put his experience and skills to good use and start Sapphire and he's not looked back. What Dan loves the most is to be able to help customers achieve their vision.

Whilst Sapphire enjoy a good solid project - loft conversions, extensions, garden buildings, garden offices, shop, pub and restaurant fittings, Dan doesn't shy away from the medium size work such as kitchens, wooden, laminate or vinyl flooring, decking and landscape gardening.

Why not get in touch with Dan at Sapphire to see if your vision is something Sapphire can help you achieve!

Kev Manning

With a change of career several years ago, Kev joined Sapphire and loves to see a project through from beginning to end. Kev is hard-working and whilst he loves a cup of tea he's always keen to get going and get the job done and is a friendly chap to have around the house while you're having work done.

Rhys Jacobs

Trusted Traders


Depending on the size of the project, a building project often needs drawings and Sapphire work closely with CJS Architectural Design Services based in Sittingbourne. Colin Seymour at CJS will normally do a site visit and do both 2D and 3D drawings. Drawings will satisfy council requirements if required, for example for Permitted Development Rights or Planning Permission and allow you to visualise your project whilst giving a great basis for Sapphire to start work!


Dan has worked with Andy Sutton at Deal Electrical Contracting Ltd since 2014 and will always use Deal Electrical as first choice for electrician on Sapphire Construction and Renovation Ltd projects.


Dan has worked with Dave Canfield at DCA Plastering Ltd since 2009 and will always use Dave at DCA as first choice for plastering on Sapphire projects. Dave and his team did all the plastering on a recent loft conversion project including the very technical stairwell pictured above which was opened out along with the landing as part of the project.


A Constable Ltd Roofers have worked with Dan at Sapphire for many years. Pictured above doing the roofing for a recent Sapphire loft conversion. Tiles were removed from the roof to allow the steels to be hoisted in through the roof. The original tiles were cleaned and relaid on the full height dormer with new tiles cut to sit on the corners. No small job excellent attention to detail!
