Life Build Solutions looking forward to 2009

As it approaches its fourth anniversary, regional contracting company Life Build Solutions is bucking plummeting economic trends across the construction industry with a stack of new work and secure order books for 2009.

Orders hit a record level for the new business in the third quarter this year, totalling 7.33m. Latest contracts include a new painting school for the Royal College of Art in Battersea; a new community theatre in Borehamwood; 13 dwellings at Mill End Road, High Wycombe, for London & Quadrant Housing Group and 16 residential units in Croft road, Aylesbury, for Hightown Praetorian & Churches Housing Association.

Life Build Solutions founding director Ken Adams said: "These projects will help us reach 15 million turnover for 2008 and boost our trading prospects for 2009."

A large slice of Life Build's work comes from repeat orders, which account for over 70 per cent of business. Said fellow founding director Mike Wilde: "These record orders amply reflect the title and core aims of Life Build Solutions - forging lifelong relationships with clients by consistently delivering first-class results.

"Our continued success in these difficult times is down to selecting a motivated, proactive team of professionals and working together to exceed client expectations."

In Borehamwood, the start of work on creating an eagerly-awaited community theatre at Hertswood Specialist Arts College was celebrated with a traditional ground-breaking ceremony involving staff, students and local community leaders).

Life Build's project involves stripping out, rebuilding and extending the current school hall to create a 250-seat theatre, complete with dressing rooms, scene dock, foyer and bar area. Due to open next autumn, the new facilities will be run by the college and shared with the town's community
