National award win rounds off huge year of growth for six-year-old Lichfield business

TAMWORTH, U.K. - Nov. 22, 2022 - PRLog -- A Lichfield business which was started less than six years ago by two people with a vision of 'service above profits' has brought home the silver after winning a national building and construction award.
Legionella & Fire Safe Services won the silver award for Contractor of the Year (contract value up to £5m) in the 2022 National Building and Construction Awards at a glitzy ceremony in London.
The accolade was in recognition of a challenging £2.5m programme of work carried out at Jordan House, a 13-storey apartment building in Castle Bromwich which is home to 50 families and individuals.
Danielle Bayliss, operations director at LFS, said: "Winning this prestigious award is a huge recognition for every single member of the team and their contributions to the business. From starting less than six years ago to being recognised at a national awards ceremony is an achievement we are extremely proud of."
LFS was contracted by Wates Group to undertake a series of fire safety improvements, plus heating and waste upgrades to the tower block, which is owned by Birmingham City Council.
The most challenging element of the project involved removing the entire cast iron soil pipe system and replacing it with new sustainable pre-fabricated soil pipes throughout the entire building. This was carried out 'live' to minimise disruption to residents of the 50 apartments.
All the work was undertaken without having to move the tenants out, with individual heating and water being restored the same day.
The award is the perfect end to what has been an amazing year for the business, which has achieved 50% growth in turnover and increased its workforce by 67% to 60 members of staff.
This success has been shared with the entire LFS team, with above inflation rate pay rises alongside a new package of employee benefits and support to help people through the cost-of-living crisis.
This includes an extra £100 per employee every month of the winter to help with energy costs, private healthcare for all, a 24/7 private GP service for staff and their families, Perkbox discounts, offers and freebies and a wellness hub.
Steve Morris, LFS managing director, said: "It's been a great year for the business and this is thanks to the hard work of the whole team and we want them to reap the rewards of that success. Winning the award has been the perfect way to round off 2022 as we look forward to 2023 and projected growth of a further 45%."
