Jorvik Design Group is the brainchild of Ady Rhodes, director. Having spent many years working within the wireless telecoms and fibre design industry, he saw the opportunity to develop a service that provides a professional, high-quality turnkey solution for FTTP survey and design.

Andy Rooker and Charlie Farley, fellow directors of JDG, were working along-side Ady on a range of projects within the telecommunications industry. All three believed that the quality being produced by existing planning and design companies could be improved upon. Together they shared a vision of a company that could provide a service, not only tailored towards the client’s architectural needs
but one that also maximised efficiency throughout the build and network deployment.

Jorvik Design Group was setup to provide the highest quality survey and design services to the telecommunications industry.

Jorvik Design Group considers every aspect of each client’s project. Combining the design/planning element, fibre element and the civil construction element enables Jorvik Design Group to provide a service that is second to none.



Our passion is to deliver the best quality service with the key emphasis being on getting it right the first time.


We have an extensively experienced team who believe in what Jorvik strive to achieve – providing the best possible service whilst always maintaining honesty, loyalty and reliability.


We believe in an honest and open approach throughout our service. We feel that operating this way allows us to build better client relationships, 
whilst keeping clients informed every step of the way enables potential issues to be identified as soon as possible.


Our three directors have extensive, individual experience within the telecommunications industry. Together they have the knowledge to provide a professionally managed service that combines the 3 key elements:

1) Design/planning
2) Surveying and build
3) Fibre blowing, splicing and core network knowledge.

This industry based experience sets Jorvik Design Group out from the rest.

Jorvik Design Group are industry professionals who employ industry personnel. Our surveying team have practical experience and knowledge
having spent many years building telecommunication networks as well supervising gangs of build teams. They are all accredited and fully trained to each of our client’s specific needs. Our planning team are highly experienced and have worked on multiple projects both in the UK and overseas and are therefore extremely competent in their approach to design.

We have worked extensively with former and existing clients to set a bench mark for best practice, as a result common key issues have been highlighted and solutions identified. We are a highly adaptive company, in an ever-changing industry and are always keen to learn and develop with our clients in order to achieve the best possible outcome.

Jorvik Design Group believe in growing at a sustainable rate. Our ultimate goal is to retain clients and build on these relationships for a continued
business partnership. We are a medium sized company and our vision is to grow in such a way that we can meet our client’s expectations without compromising on the quality of the work we produce. We offer a bespoke surveying, planning and design service to all our clients – not a ‘factory’ service, driven by large targets which are achieved by mass producing, poor quality work. At Jorvik we passionately believe in our ethos and therefore ensure that we will achieve client demands, without compromising on quality, ever!

Jorvik Design Group aim to operate as environmentally friendly as possible. We are keen to keep our carbon footprint to a minimum and are continually looking at ways to reduce it. Recycling and reusing is encouraged throughout the company. Our surveying team use energy efficient vans and electronic tablet devices instead of A0/A1 drawings when out in the field. Environmentally friendly PC’s and laptops are used within the office and working from home is promoted where possible.

We believe in staff progression and where possible aim to promote from within.
