The last few months have been challenging for lots of businesses across all sectors, including construction, and we have managed to adapt and evolve throughout this period to remain operational on site for both existing and new clients. We have continued providing technical support and quality inspections on UK construction projects where we have been able to do so.
The response to the pandemic initially saw a decrease of technical output to 30% across the Group companies, but we are delighted to confirm that with a strong leadership team, quality driven management and the dedication and commitment of our technical teams, we have responded to clients’ desire to get building again, and we are now operating much nearer to former levels of inspections and being appointed on many exciting new projects across the Group which will have a really positive impact across all of our businesses.
Group service to benefit UK construction
Hickton Group evolved in March 2020 to incorporate two additional businesses (Cook Brown Building Control and Cook Brown Energy) to provide clients with a unique service and to continue our ambition to be a leading multi-disciplinary provider of quality inspection and consultancy services in the construction sector.
We have structured our business so that you and your construction professionals can benefit from our businesses focused on delivering technical excellence and exceptional service. Being part of the Group means that there is a co-ordinated approach to Commercial Business, Marketing, Resourcing, Finance, Administration Support, Operations and Corporate Governance, giving you the confidence that your projects are in good hands.
We are working on many construction projects across the Group, Cook Brown Building Control and BRCS undertook more than 900 site inspections during June, Hickton Quality Control have steadily increased the number of inspection hours month on month during the lockdown period and Cook Brown Energy had a record month for providing reports and advice in June. The Group remains committed to working on projects across every region of the UK and across a diverse range of industry sectors.
