Following on from our support of Lakehouse’s listing on the London Stock Exchange earlier this year, we worked with the asset and energy support services company to announce its latest acquisition, Sure.

As a highly effective gas maintenance firm operating in the Midlands and North of England, Sure is a perfect fit for Lakehouse, which is focused on expanding into complementary services across the UK that support its core social housing and public sector market.

It’s hard to imagine that six years ago, Lakehouse was a contractor with 160 staff and a turnover of £50 million. It now employs 1,800 people across 29 offices and is turning over £345 million. We have worked with the business to guide it through the implications of a rapidly changing external profile and make sure that this profile was reflective of its rapid growth and success.
