Despite low confidence in the UK economy in 2020, KDM’s management was planning to open their new office facility in the heart of Leeds to assist with increasing demand from their client base. The vision was to create a regional centre of excellence supporting the Dalgety Bay Office and manufacturing operation and existing hub in Warrington.
Working within Government guidelines, the KDM Leeds office opened in January 2021, and one office became three to meet the demands of our clients, with KDM Group growth exceeding 200% year on year.The facility has become the centre of operations for our key client providing design, commercial, & technical support at every level for our national site operations.
The phenomenal success of this satellite office has given our clients access to a flexible workspace. This allows them to work collaboratively with our team. We are hosting face to face and virtual meetings shaping the ever-moving world of construction whilst advising & fulfilling stakeholders requirements to the tight timelines demanded in our sector.
Fast forward one year to January 2022, when KDM realised the evolution of our new Warrington facility. By recognising the increased demand for further support around the Northern corridor, KDM’s management has further invested in providing an upgraded hub to supplement the Dalgety Bay & Leeds Offices.
The property initially will house essential materials for our key clients to avoid procurement delays. The forward purchasing & stockholding strategy has been developed with our supply line to help combat the lack of availability & rising costs experienced in the construction industry throughout 2021 & into 2022. However, the 15 000 sq. ft. facility will also house the Warrington Commercial and Operations Support Teams with access to state of the art facilities to deliver expert design, commercial & project management services. This facility underlines our ethos to provide excellence with value.
As the landscape of construction changes and continues to move at pace, KDM will ensure our drive, advice, support and facilities are in place to meet our clients’ needs in 2022 and beyond.
