Greater London Enterprise Awards 2023

6 | SME News Greater London Enterprise Awards 2023 Most Strategic Windows & Doors Business 2023 Kyle Hollyomes founded KBH Building Services Ltd (KBH) in 2014 as a one-man operation and small-scale provider of building services to the residential and commercial sectors in East London. Today, the company is still wholly owned by Kyle, and it has grown into a leading contractor to the largest housing associations and construction companies in the UK, now working with over 100 employees, operatives, and sub-contractors, and turning over £17m per year. Now seeing well-deserved success within the Greater London Enterprise Awards 2023, we speak to Kyle to learn more about his award-winning firm. KBH Building Services strives to be a leader in its field, providing an array of outstanding construction services extending from maintenance and void refurbishments through to fire safety works. With core values of ‘honesty’, ‘ambition’, ‘empowerment’, and ‘caring’, it is a medium-sized business dedicated to delivering best-in-class services, whether it’s in the quality of work or the administration behind the scenes. Its team strives to achieve complete client satisfaction by consistently completing all projects – no matter how big or small – on time, within budget, and to the highest possible quality. Since its establishment, KBH has expanded to incorporate its own manufacturing sites in the UK and Bulgaria, from which it produces industry-certified door sets and windows under its own name. It manufactures and installs fire doors and windows, and carries out refurbishment works of kitchens, bathrooms, and general voids; fits safety flooring; provides fire stop solutions; as well as completes other general works such as decorating, plastering, and internal wall insulations. Within KBH’s offering, it is simply not enough just to make profit; it is devoted to making sure it really adds value to everything it does, as Kyle explains, “When replacing an old door set with a new one, we always make sure the product we are bringing would keep the resident safe in their home. We know we have achieved that when someone has tried to break into a client’s home and the door set – due to its certified design, manufacturer, and lab-tested performance – withstands the attack and prevents entry. We are happiest then, not because of the incident occurring, of course, but because our product kept someone safe in their home. “We definitely believe that our work has a duty to be carried out well, as ultimately it is our community members who suffer from poor fire safety and security measures, and we can contribute to that not being the case. That, together with our social responsibility programme, ensures that the social bottom line is also “profitable”.” As part of its social responsibility, the company is also dedicated to working as environmentallyfriendly as possible, by reducing waste; recycling materials; replacing old vehicles with newer electric ones; using IT algorithms to optimise
