Today (2 March 2018) is the 20th ‘birthday’ of what is now The Larkfleet Group of Companies.
Larkfleet Limited, the first company in the group, was registered at Companies House on 2 March 1998 by current chief executive Karl Hick.
Now The Larkfleet Group of Companies is an award-winning housebuilding and development company employing more than 100 people and turning over more than £80 million per year.
Its customers and clients include homebuyers, local authorities, housing associations and solar farm developers.
The group has a particular focus on sustainable development.
Karl Hick said: “We aim to achieve environmental best practice and sustainability in the projects we deliver for customers and also in our own business operations.
“Our investment in research and development will benefit future generations. Our current R&D projects could revolutionise the construction industry with innovative techniques for low-cost building and technologies which will permit house building in areas prone to flooding.
“Wherever possible we place contracts with local suppliers and employ local people. We support local communities through our Larkfleet Homes Community Fund, by working with local schools and charities and by sponsoring business awards which celebrate the achievements of local companies.”
Larkfleet is a major supporter of training initiatives and is a sponsor of the Greater Peterborough University Technical College.
The company’s ‘corporate mission' is “to produce high quality sustainable developments using innovative technology and construction methods, delivered to exceed our customers' expectations”.
The group will shortly be announcing a series of events and activities to mark its 20 years in business.
