Award-Winning Performance

As facilities become increasingly complex, sophisticated clients realise that although they are experts in their own field, successful engineering and construction projects are extremely complicated and require expertise across several specialist disciplines. For this reason they seek out Michael Lonsdale Group for creativity, financial stability, safety, and uncommon expertise, knowing that one good idea from this industry leader can save them both time and money.

Vision Turned Reality

The company was founded by its current group chairman, Michael J Hoodless, back in October 1986 and, working out of offices in Ascot, Berkshire, its first contract was worth the princely sum of £165.

Growth came quickly though, with Michael Lonsdale Group moving into bigger offices – this time in Slough – in 1988. At this time, the company was working for clients that operated primarily in the health and retail sectors, but by the start of the 1990s, and now undertaking mechanical installations throughout the UK, it had expanded further into pharmaceutical, banking, education, local authorities and commercial markets.

Michael Lonsdale Group’s first major project was for Mercedes Benz (Hersham Motors), with a value of £220,000, whilst its first £1 million project was at the National History Museum’s Earth Galleries.

In the same year that Michael Lonsdale Group celebrated its 10th anniversary, the industry voted the company the HVAC Contractor of the Year; an award that was supported by 10 years of financial growth and profit, and a turnover in 1996 of £14.5 million.

Entrepreneurial Leader

Offering a committed and enthusiastic approach to the installation of multi discipline building and engineering services throughout the length and breadth of the country, Michael Lonsdale Group had been led from the  front by its entrepreneurial founder Michael J Hoodless; an industry professional with an unrivalled reputation for his passion, dedication and client delivery.
