Diamond Facilities Support Launches Major Works Team

Diamond Facilities Support Launches Major Works Team
22 March 2024

Birmingham-based FM service provider Diamond Facilities Support has launched a major works team and a new intake of engineers.

The new major works team will be led by Barry Leonard, with a focus on FM projects worth up to £500,000. The business already has a minor works team, led by Rebecca Harris. 15 people will work across both teams.

Diamond Facilities Support has also recently recruited ten engineers, taking the total workforce to 190 as the business looks to beat last year’s £15 million annual turnover. The group aims to hit £30 million of annual turnover by 2027.

Adam Atkins, Chief Executive at Diamond Facilities Support, said: “The consistent results from our direct labour model approach have helped us to build trust and forge longstanding relationships with some of the biggest brands in the UK – to the point where our briefs with existing clients are expanding, alongside securing referrals.

“Demand has now reached a level where we now need dedicated teams to support minor and major commercial projects alongside the regular scheduled FM work that we offer to clients.

“Whether it is upgrading utilities across an organisation’s group of sites, or re-plastering a hole in a ceiling, we now have teams dedicated to carrying out these types of works to ensure we maintain an efficient service that will enable us to continue to grow.

“As a business we are also passionate about bringing through the next generation of FM talent to work alongside experienced engineers in an environment where there is career progression for everyone, and our latest intake of engineers typifies this.”
