Kilmac 2021 Reflections

Posted on December 21, 2021

There is no doubt that 2021 has been a tough year for the construction industry.

As 2021 comes to a close, it is always good to reflect on what has been achieved over the year by Kilmac.

From dealing with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the challenges this brought for the whole team, it has still been a strong year.

In 2021, Kilmac has managed to achieve the following:

  • Secured a healthy workload for 2022 moving forward
  • Continued to strengthen relationships with our long term partners
  • Additional members of staff throughout the teams
  • Opened a new office in Livingston
  • Continued to develop the workforce utilising a detailed training matrix
  • STV charity drive - raising £8000 for the Children's Appeal
  • Sustainability goals with the introduction of electric cars for the fleet and purchase of new vans
  • Investment in our own plant
  • Managing unprecedented times with material shortages and price increases
  • Continued priority of keeping our workforce safe as possible with the ongoing COVID situation.

Overall, a big team effort in challenging times.

Supply Chain Issues

A special mention has to go to our buying department and supply chain for their herculean efforts in managing materials shortages etc to meet the demand of our tight programmes. You have been fantastic!

This certainly has been and will continue to be particularly challenging in these unprecedented times.

Skills Shortages

Most would agree that 2021 has been extremely challenging for recruiting employees in the construction industry. The main challenge, however, lies in attracting new talent to the industry and keeping workers engaged.

Kilmac's solution to this was to appeal to a younger workforce. In 2021, we recruited Civil Engineering Modern Apprentices and kick starters.

Kilmac is committed to ensuring that all staff have access to learning, development and training opportunities which enable them to be suitably knowledgeable and skilled to carry out their role within the Company, and to develop their talents in ways that fit with the Company’s development to meet its strategic objectives.

In 2021, there were over 200 individual training courses achieved with courses booked in for 2022 already.

Moving To Sustainability

We operate in a sector of industry which recognises times are changing and we have to continue to reduce our CO2 footprint. 2021 has been the year of sustainability.

As we strive for a green recovery, investments have been made in electric company car vehicles, a fleet of new vans, and an increase to our own plant.

This will continue to be our focus moving forward.
