Thanks to everyone at our Birmingham office for supporting our Easter raffle. The team raised the terrific total of £106 for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.
Read the latest news about Briggs and Forrester.
Independent M&E contractor Briggs & Forrester Group is on track to achieve its three-year target of building a £250m turnover business. The firm returned a pre-tax profit of £3.6m in the year to 31 October 2015, bouncing back from a £2.7m loss after clearing legacy contracts the year before.
Chairman Mike Stanton said the business was on track to deliver turnover of £195m this year after achieving revenue up 8% to £164m last year.
There was a fun atmosphere in the offices on Friday 18th March when everyone 'dressed down', or up in some cases, to raise funds for Sport Relief. Our current total stands at nearly £300 - well done everyone for supporting this worthy cause - and having some fun too!

Who would have thought that ping pong could be so competitive! Teams from our Engineering Services and MEP divisions in the South East Region had a great evening last week in a mixed group competition. It was a perfect way to bring players from across the company together for a ferociously fun series of games. The victors were Lorraine Kirkham, Paul Rupply and Martin Sheaf – evidently last minute substitutions were necessary!
Our Birmingham office was a house divided recently for the inaugural Upstairs v Downstairs football match. It was a tense game as the lead passed backwards and forwards, but after dives, missed shots aimed more at the car park than the goal and flying tackles, victory was sweet for the Upstairs team. £76 was raised for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. Well done teams!
88% of employers who hire apprentices believe that Apprenticeships lead to a more motivated and satisfied workforce.* We’re proud of our history of helping young people to take their first steps into the building services industry. Whether it’s engineering or estimating, design or maintenance we are keen to develop our teams of tomorrow. We currently have over 40 apprentices across a variety of disciplines, such as heating & ventilation, plumbing, electrical and technical, and we’re always keen to hear from more people interested in our industry.
We’re excited to announce that the Briggs and Forrester Group will continue its sponsorship of the Family Stand at the Northants County Cricket ground. We’re looking forward to the new season starting on April 10th.

Good luck to Kevin Mason, Design Director and Bill Mason, Electrical Site Supervisor, from Briggs and Forrester’s MEP division.
Congratulations to Junior Mechanical Engineer Dawood Seedat who has been awarded the East Midlands Student of the Year 2015 by CIBSE. We spoke to Dawood recently following the presentation of the award:
Torrential rain didn’t put visitors off at a recent careers fair at Northampton College; over 1,000 students attended and many of them visisted the Briggs & Forrester stand.
Events like this are a perfect way for our team to chat with students about the exciting opportunities and career potential with Briggs & Forrester. They met some fantastic people who are already engaged and interested in engineering, mechanical and electrical disciplines and hope to stay in contact with them, looking for our team of the future!
