KBS Current Affairs: Issue #2

Dear Valued Reader,

I am delighted to write to you all, with this being our second newsletter, to share an update on activity at KBS – Q1 2022.
As businesses recover from the effects of the pandemic, I write to inform you of some of the initiatives we are currently working on at KBS, and our plans in line with our business strategy 2022-2025.

I hope you will find our newsletter of interest and please do get in touch with me if you would like to know more about KBS, or to contribute or comment.

Updates from Daniel Robson

In this article we talk about technological development and investment, better communications, ensuring full compliance and environmental improvement.

Commercial Fit Out Division Launch

In 2022, we launched our commercial fit-out capability with a campaign focused on the major commercial contractors operating in our region.

Already we are seeing the fruits of this hard work, with several new enquiries coming through and one project cost being approved with a leading UK contractor. This work is ongoing, and so far, we have had several high-level meetings with the key operators in this sector.

Team Update

People Investment

We are committed to the development of our engineer team, with two apprentices taken on this year who are developing under the careful mentorship of some of our more senior engineers, more about them in the next newsletter. And we also welcome Jordan to the team. Jordan is working towards his NVQ Level 3 with a good track record and joined us in February.

Waitrose Harrow Weald

We are making excellent progress on our project for Waitrose at Harrow Weald, a new refrigeration upgrade.

Enabling works included the rewiring of all distribution boards, including a new 800A Main LV Panel.

John Lewis Welwyn Garden City

We are nearing completion of another key project for John Lewis Partnership, in Hertfordshire. This includes the upgrading of five new Air Handling Units (AHU) to new heat pump versions.

Also, for the Bedding Department, the installation of a new AC system using new external AC Condensers, and the installation of a new AHU Heat Pump.

Delivering a responsive, high quality service since 1961.
