Stroma Group Ltd has completed the acquisition of two recognised Building Control service providers, BBS Building Control Ltd (“BBS”) and Approved Design Consultancy Limited (“Approved Design”). Following the previous acquisition of Greendoor Building Control & Specialist Services Limited (“Greendoor”) in 2015, the three businesses will become one of the largest independent Approved Inspectors in the UK.
BBS, Approved Design and Greendoor have a wealth of skilled and experienced staff which delivers Approved Inspector services across the country. The combined expertise, reputation and legacy of all three businesses will create an extensive Building Control Division within the Stroma Group.
With more than 40 years experience as Corporate Approved Inspectors, BBS, Approved Design and Greendoor are all approved by the Construction Industry Council (CIC). There are clear benefits to Stroma customers and existing customers of BBS, Approved Design and Greendoor due to their geographical reach and combined expertise. The expanded Building Control division allows Stroma to make improvements to their service catalogue and breadth of expertise. The Building Control division will deliver excellence and customer value in the same vein as the rest of the Stroma Group.
Stroma is a leading authority on building, sustainability and compliance. Based in Yorkshire, the Group has a turnover in excess of £26M and employs more than 350 staff. Stroma works across the built environment specialising in the certification, compliance and energy sectors. In addition, through Stroma Software, the company provides unique, innovative software solutions for mobile workers. A dedicated in-house software development team provides flexible solutions which both complement Stroma’s existing expertise and drive expansion into new markets.
Matthew Ferguson, co-founder of Stroma and CEO of the Stroma Group, said: "I am delighted to announce these new additions to the Stroma Group and I welcome the experience that the staff of BBS and Approved Design are bringing into the Group. As the three businesses become one of the largest groups of independent Approved Inspectors in the country, our customers can call on an expansive service catalogue and an exciting, dynamic new division in the Building Control sector. Alongside Greendoor, the acquisitions of BBS and Approved Design will place Stroma at the forefront of Building Control service provision for many years to come."
