Market

The UK facilities management sector is expected to grow by 4% annually over the coming years.

Client demand will be fuelled by regulatory requirements in areas such as energy efficiency and reporting, together with the better use of technology to extend asset life, improve benchmarking, and reduce costs across estates.

Strategy

Having invested in August 2013, we are working with Bellrock’s new management team to deliver an organic and acquisitive growth strategy which includes:

  • Optimising existing resources and investing in marketing and sales activities
  • Targeting growth segments including the education and energy services market
  • Enhancing further the company’s proprietary technology platform
  • Add-on acquisitions to diversify services and build scale

Developments

Since our investment in 2013 Bellrock has:

  • Acquired seven add-on businesses, which have enhanced Bellrock’s ability to deliver Property Services, FM service integration and full end-to-end management of their clients’ estates
  • Completed the transformation of its technology offering with the acquisition of Concerto and helped to build the forward order book to >£500m
