Our story

At LGS Projects, our strapline reads “Innovation Led, Customer Focused, Solution Driven”, and that just about sums up our attitude.

Utilising the very best British made, precision engineered materials, with a laser focus on service and quality, and a ‘can-do’ attitude to engineering challenges, we are at the forefront of sustainable excellence in construction.

We predominantly work direct for the end user or developer, designing and constructing highly efficient steel framed buildings across the UK.

The themes that run throughout are quality and integrity. We offer value for money without cutting corners, and we are tenacious in pursuit of solutions to meet and exceed customer expectations.​

Most of our buildings are either light industrial units, or workshops, storage units and factories. However, we have also constructed restaurants, breweries, a golf pro-shop, hybrid units, offices, car valeting buildings, gatehouses, clubhouses, showrooms, retail units, a swimming pool, and even a house!

We do not supply off the shelf ‘kit’ buildings. Every LGS Projects building is bespoke, and our system offers an extremely cost-effective alternative to traditional construction methods.

Our history​

LGS Projects Ltd was started in 2017 by Brian and Jacquie Garvey. Since then, the company has experienced steady, controlled growth to the present day.

Mark Dickinson joined the team in 2019, with Alison Dickinson, Toni Atkinson and Christa Kuhnel subsequently joining to create the fantastic team we now have.

Brian, who spent most of his career in senior roles within the Kingspan Group, retired in 2023, but still takes an active interest in the business, and is always on hand to offer help and advice.

The business is currently run by a small, highly skilled team, led by Jacquie Garvey and Mark Dickinson.
