G&H Group appoints new director as MEP specialist launches growth strategy

A new director has been appointed by G&H Group as it launches a growth strategy to build on its recent success.

James Taylor has joined from FHP Consulting Engineers where he held an Executive Board position and brings over 20 years’ experience of contracting and consulting in the building services sector.

As Group Director he will focus on business strategy for all six of G&H’s divisions that include Building Services, Renewables, Maintenance, Fabrication, Air Conditioning and Projects.

James Taylor said: “The opportunity to play a leading role in the next chapter of G&H’s growth was too good a prospect to turn down.

“A key part of my role is to make sure the six divisions within the Group all grow sustainably.  Identifying opportunities at the earliest stage is key in implementing this.

“We know from experience, the sooner we can be involved in a project the better the results for our clients and us.

“Our early engagement in a scheme allows us to prepare concepts that see our pre-construction, estimating and design teams involved from the outset which can shape projects far better and deliver more value.

“We are also looking to integrate our six divisions of the group in schemes more regularly.  This allows us to provide a turnkey MEP and aftercare service where clients have a cohesive single point of contact that improves efficiencies across the board.”

G&H Group recorded revenues of £30 million last year and already has a strong order book taking it into 2021.

Projects being delivered by G&H Building Services include the Majestic in Leeds, Hudson Quarter in York, a 400-unit residential scheme in Luton and Vida Court dementia care home in Harrogate.

These are in addition to long-term retained work delivered by G&H Maintenance and G&H Fabrication.

Managing Director of G&H Group, Graham Kelly, said: “James accepted the position prior to the Covid-19 pandemic and although there are uncertain times ahead within the construction sector, we feel the timing of his appointment is ideal.

“He will help deliver our growth strategy by enabling us to increase our exposure to new opportunities and strengthen the relationship with our existing client base that is already very strong.

“We have developed the business successfully over recent years and the addition of James to our Executive Board will take the business to a new level, ensuring we engage with and deliver for our clients better than ever before.”
