LINEAR Group has confirmed the launch of a new division – called Linear building Compliance (LBC) – dedicated to providing solutions across fire, acoustics and compartmentation to ensure ‘optimal compliance’ for building owners and developers.

The news comes as the contracting and fit-out specialist marks a rise in annual turnover to more than £30 million – up from £24 million in 2019.

The business, which operates from offices in Glasgow and Manchester, revealed LBC becomes the third division within the group and has been launched to meet an increase in clients’ needs across the areas of fire door inspections and maintenance, fire compartmentation and acoustics solutions, including insulation and reverberation.

The new offering will be led by Andrew Shankland and deliver UK-wide solutions for all types of new and existing buildings.

Stephen Holmes, CEO, Linear Group, said, “The launch of Linear Building Compliance is in recognition that specialist services are now more in demand in the industry than ever before, and I believe that clients are looking to minimise their risk by engaging with quality, fully certified and accountable businesses such as Linear Group.

“This comes following a challenging year across the industry, but we’re delighted to be able to drive forward our growth, topping the £30m turnover mark this year, and we are projecting to double this within the next year in line with our ambitious plans and robust pipeline. This achievement is down to the hard work and commitment of our teams across the UK, and their unwavering tenacity in the face of extraordinary circumstances.”
