Innov8 doubles staff and turnover

Merseyside-based construction firm has announced its year end accounts for 2014, with a £700,000 turnover compared to £440,000 in the previous year.

In the last 12 months the company has also more than doubled in size with six new hires taking the staff total to 10.

The firm offers two industry specialisms in construction design management and site safety services.

There were no details as to profit levels for 2013 and 2014.

Managing director Alan Robson said the firm's turnover increase was been driven by project wins across Merseyside, Manchester, Leeds, London and Edinburgh, with new contracts in commercial, healthcare, maritime and education sectors.

Residential contracts have been secured with Liverpool-based Riverside Group and Great Places in Blackpool. Meanwhile, education projects have included work in Yorkshire and Wirral.

Robson said: "Innov8 has recorded strong and sustainable growth over the last seven years. However, our ambition to expand beyond the North West region and roll-out services nationally has greatly helped to drive turnover in the last year. We are now keen to capitalise on this progress and are launching an ambitious three-year growth strategy to take turnover past the £1m barrier.

"Our growth has been supported by a number of new appointments in 2014. We have doubled our team of specialists after recruiting six additional full-time employees and an office apprentice. It is fundamental to our brand and company ethos that we boost skills locally and are looking to further expand our apprenticeship programme which was launched last year."
