Building Performance Insights

John O'Brien, LCMB

What a year! Who would have guessed that ‘COVID-19’, ‘pandemic’, ‘unprecedented’, ‘lockdown’ and ‘you’re on mute’ would become some of the top phrases of 2020?

At last, we’ve received the wonderful news that the first COVID-19 vaccine, developed by Pfizer/BioNTech, has been approved for use by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). As I write this, it’s being rolled out by the NHS across their nationwide vaccination programme.

Meanwhile, we recently launched our COVID-19 Secure Working service. Guiding your organisation through the dying phases of the pandemic and transitioning safely into life beyond. See below for more information and links to download our COVID-19 Secure Workplace Checklist.

Exciting plans are afoot for next year, including:

  • The launch of our new workplace optimisation service, Thrive. This service improves workplace health, wellbeing and performance. It helps your people feel secure and healthier in their working environment, boosts their performance, and allows your organisation to, well, thrive!
  • We will belatedly celebrate our ten-year anniversary. We had hoped to celebrate that earlier this year, but a certain devastating event got in the way…

Watch our for news on both in early 2021.

As we countdown to the Christmas holiday, and hopefully a well-deserved break for all, we are turning our thoughts to the year ahead. In fact, I’ve even made a few predictions in my latest blog – there’s a link to them below.

Also in this newsletter, our team give their tips for a top Christmas – see below for more on that.

Finally, I would like to thank all our customers and friends for their support throughout 2020. We look forward to working with you in a safer, happier and more prosperous 2021.

Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Our view of the year ahead


Looking back on 2020, who could have predicted the monumental events that we have seen? No-one foresaw that COVID-19 would turn into a global pandemic when we first heard reports of it emerging in Wuhan in January. As we move into December and the end of 2020, like many people, my thoughts have turned to next year and what changes, if any, we may see. So, I’ve captured my 2021 top seven predictions. Let’s see how accurate these forecasts turn out to be.

To find out what my predictions are read here.

Case Studies

LCMB's accelerated ROI audit

Too many organisations spend large sums of money on the wrong initiatives that generate a poor return or even a loss.

This is why we created the LCMB accelerated ROI audit. It cuts through the noise and quickly, clearly identifies the untapped performance improvement areas within your buildings.

The audit uncovers operational inefficiencies such as under-utilised space and facilities, as well as cost and energy reduction opportunities, and then provides a clear plan for realising potential.

By implementing the plan, we guarantee the audit pays for itself within 6 months and thereafter generates a positive return.

Contact John O’Brien on 01295 722823  [email protected] to discuss how the LCMB accelerated ROI audit can improve your organisation performance and return on investment.
