As you will read elsewhere within the pages of HighwaysIndustry.com, up and down the UK there are a number of complex highway creation or improvement projects and thousands of smaller local schemes.

Each of these schemes and projects being controlled by project management teams with an unenviable job - to bring together, against the odds, sometimes hundreds of different contractors and stakeholders to deliver a project on budget, on-time and to specification.
"We have proven comprehensively to our customers that total savings of between 10-15% are realistic when we are able to provide solutions for two or more elements of a project."
The more moving parts in any item of machinery (or highways project), the greater chance there is of failure. And the more contractors you have the greater risk of a hiccup.

With LMS Highways' wide range of services, the company are keen to spread the awareness of their 'Kerb to Kerb Service' message. This means reducing the headaches of project managers by providing a joined-up solution for delivery of several elements of the job.

With the ability to provide highway joint repair, bridge repair joints, ironwork replacements, anti-skid high friction surfacing and just about every type of road marking and stud available, a true kerb to kerb solution is available right now bringing a highly efficient delivery schedule and importantly, the outstanding potential for cost efficiency.

"We're very aware from seeing examples in the industry that it's easy to call yourself a one-stop shop but we genuinely feel that we're able to live up to that expectation and our recent achievements with major tier 1 providers and DBFO clients has proven this."
Not resting on their laurels, this multi-skilled approach has been boosted further by the launch of LMS Civil Solutions earlier this year - already attracting much interest from new and existing industry clients.

"We have proven comprehensively to our customers that total savings of between 10-15% are realistic when we are able to provide solutions for two or more elements of a project." says Paul Winter, Managing Director.

"Not only have we invested heavily in a superbly reliable modern fleet but we devote many hours a month to the continual training of our foreman and operatives so they have the skills and experience to deliver a wide-range of services for our customers."

He adds "We're very aware from seeing examples in the industry that it's easy to call yourself a one-stop shop but we genuinely feel that we're able to live up to that expectation and our recent achievements with major tier 1 providers and DBFO clients has proven this."

And innovation continues to play a strong focus at the company. I.T. being just one of those areas with dedicated I.T. Systems Manager and Software Developer Danny Corder commenting "After an intensive development and testing schedule, we're now handling 100% of our jobs using our electronic E-DRS format with all our foremen using modern, fast and secure iPad Mini tablets."

Paul Winter added "The data coming back to our contract managers and senior management team in real-time is enabling us to understand our client requirements and better manage our delivery. That, in turn, makes us more responsive to our clients' needs."

The company identified 2016 as a major year of progress for LMS Highways and their achievements in the early part of the year are certainly living up to hope and expectation.
