LDC secures £19m of projects in year one

Linear Design & Construct (LDC) has completed its first full year of trading by securing £19m of projects.  In addition, the forward order book is currently forecasting a strong turnover of £15m for the year ahead.  During this year, LDC has also recruited exceptionally well by adding 15 Tier 1 staff to its team.

During its first year of trading, LDC has secured contracts across a broad spectrum of industries from education to office, retail and historic refurbishment, demonstrating the far reaching expertise and capability of the team.

Key contracts secured or preferred bidder status during 2019 include the extensive office rationalisation project for South Ayrshire Council via hub South West; Lothian Buses new flagship customer centre in Edinburgh; the refurbishment of the Grade C listed HQ of the Scottish Bible Society; the full refurbishment of Gretna Gateway Outlet Village and the high spec office fit-out of KPMG Aberdeen.

Commenting on the success of year one, Ryan Broadley, Managing Director of LDC said, “This year has largely exceeded our expectations, yet it has confirmed the credibility and expertise of our offer within a highly competitive marketplace.  The combination of a fast developing reputation from a team of highly skilled and professional experts, to a dynamic and agile approach, has proved a key to our consistent success throughout 2019.  I am confident that we have something to offer a broad variety of business sectors across both public and private organisations, looking for high quality partners to deliver strong project outcomes.”

Stephen Holmes, CEO of Linear Group said, “2019 has been an exceptional first year for LDC and the efforts of Ryan and the team have proved the strength of our approach.  The spectrum and scale of projects secured by LDC goes a long way to reinforce our position as a Group and we look forward to the year ahead with great positivity and clearly focused ambition.”
