During the second half of our first year, into 2020, the projects we secured were increasing both in numbers and value. As the Panoramic name was becoming more widely known we were talking to more and more main contractors. Blu-3, Mizen and ID Verde all gave us an opportunity with three very different but all quite exclusive projects.
In addition, The Big Yellow Storage project, featured in the pictures, was secured through ISG and the second half of the year saw 20 projects won, almost double the 11 in the first half.
PDR, MCS and Bowmer & Kirkland all gave us repeat business, which were proud moments. In addition, Walker, Marbank, Westridge, Taylor French and Borras had also all joined the Panoramic family in this time.
Everyone at Panoramic was looking forward to working on these projects and could not wait to see what the second year of trading would bring!
During the second quarter of the new Panoramic adventure, we were pleased to secure works with further main contractors and customers including: PDR, CNIM, MP Build, Ark Build, Bisley and Conamar.
Our first project with PDR, the Spirit of Sittingbourne, a public-private partnership to make it a destination town, went so well we have received a further four projects with PDR since completing the work.
Sales, contracts administration and estimating were now covered by Ona Marshall-Edwards, Gareth Lawton, Dale Millward and Kate Staines.
Meanwhile, Joel Bridger was leading site operations and a new Business Development Manager, Paul Hitchcott, joined us late October 2019 to ensure we were tendering for and securing as much work as possible.
The Panoramic name was beginning to get around, with positive site reports and references enabling us to go from strength to strength.
Panoramic Landscape Contractors opened its doors on the 20th May 2019 with four staff members, each chosen for their experience to create a well-rounded team and so give us the best chance of hitting the ground running. As a brand-new business, it was essential to secure projects that required immediate works on site.
Three companies had early faith in Panoramic and gave us a chance in the first three months and we will be forever grateful for those opportunities. The early customers and contracts were: C J O’Shea (Baltimore Wharf), Wildgoose (Project Spirit) and RG Carter (Colchester Sports Hub).
These three projects alone had a total value in excess of £1 million!, which allowed us to grow our team both internally and by recruiting extra site teams, reach milestones and grow far quicker than we had ever anticipated.
