Building Performance Insights

In last month’s newsletter, we spoke about the opportunity for us all to build back better as we emerge from the pandemic.

Since then, our futures have turned even brighter.

  • Britain is on track for the strongest growth since WWII as we stage a faster-than-expected recovery from the pandemic, according to the Bank of England. The Bank raised its UK GDP growth estimate to 7.25% throughout 2021, up from their February forecast of 5%, citing rapid progress with the COVID-19 vaccine and easing of restrictions leading to a boom in pent-up demand.
  • The UK vaccine rollout remains on track with over 35 million people vaccinated with their first dose. This means that the COVID-19 alert level has been lowered from 4 to 3.

With all our futures looking brighter, now we must plan and mobilise for the future as we put the pandemic behind us.

Recently, our monthly webinars have focussed on shaping the future of working and workplaces, and how we should adapt to the lessons of the pandemic. During these discussions with a variety of experts, two particular issues kept coming up – employee concern about returning to the workplace and how employee flexibilities gained during the pandemic need to be incorporated into your organisation’s future plans. All our previous webinars are now available to watch.

In May’s webinar we will discuss “How to reduce your organisation’s carbon footprint.” Register here for your free place.

LCMB are investing in a brighter future. To that end, we welcome Oscar Russell to our business as Senior Consultant.  We are also creating two new degree apprenticeships from September, helping nuture and grow new talent for our industry.

If you need any help or advice on how to manage or re orientate your workplaces, buildings and estates for this bright future, do get in contact for an informal, no obligation chat.

Its Time to Design Covid-19 Secure Workplaces For Your Organisation

One issue that keeps arising in our popular monthly webinars is how employees are concerned about returning to the workplace. Luckily, we can help you to put their minds at rest with a combination of two of our services that are very much in demand – COVID-19 Secure to keep them safe and Thrive to help them perform at their peak.

COVID-19 Secure – this service looks deep into your estates, buildings and workplaces. We pinpoint the hazard areas and provide a long-term strategy with the COVID-19 secure solutions you may need. For more information and to download our brochure, click here.

Thrive – research has proven that people perform at a far higher level when the environment they’re working in is right. When it’s not, you could be losing around 10% of your working days through absenteeism and presenteeism (working when sick).

So, optimising your workplaces makes sense. Because when worker productivity is improved, your organisation reaps the rewards. Our solutions provide around 2-3.5% additional staff productivity, a 5-10% reduction in operational costs, and 10-15% carbon emission reduction every year, giving you an excellent return on investment. For more information click here to download our Thrive brochure.

LCMB have been helping our clients to implement their COVID-19 Secure solutions since the beginning of the pandemic.

If you would like to benefit from our expertise, we are offering a free, no obligation discussion providing some initial advice on where to start Book one of our free Covid-19 Secure Solutions Consultations

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 576 000  [email protected] to discuss how the LCMB accelerated ROI audit can improve your organisation performance and return on investment.
