Johnstaff is a diverse management and delivery practice. We act as advisors, project managers, cost managers and construction practitioners for both public and private sector clients. Our practice is focused on providing commercially viable, value-enhancing solutions to our clients’ business, project and investment needs. We have a strong appreciation that our clients’ investment solutions are not always asset solutions, but are often integrated business opportunity initiatives.

Johnstaff was established in 1991 by Phil Johnston and David Wagstaff, having identified a gap in the market to provide independent project advice based on their hands-on delivery experience from careers working with Tier 1 contractors.
