Construction and community housing specialist Connolly has announced the launch of its new visual identity as the £20m turnover business looks to communicate a growing portfolio of services.
Having built a reputation over 35 years as a family contractor specialising in social housing developments across the North-West, the Wigan-based business has seen its core services expand in recent years with a growing number of projects in the commercial sector. The new brand image has been designed to reflect Connolly’s increasing diversification as the business continues to focus on making a positive difference in the community.
Managing Director, Simon Harrison, explained: “As a family business, our focus has always been to add social value to the communities we work with, whether that’s through the people we employ or the projects we work on. We’re extremely proud of the reputation we’ve developed for socially conscious construction and planned refurbishment, and that drive remains at the core of what we do.
“As Connolly has developed and grown in recent years, we’ve recognised a need to bring our brand image in line with that focus. The intention is that this new visual identity will communicate the quality and professionalism of the team, whilst not losing sight of our responsibility to the partners and residents who have come to rely on us.”
Alongside an increase in commercial refurbishment and fit-out projects, Connolly has also seen its reach spread from the North-West into Yorkshire and North Wales, where it continues to develop its social housing proposition with local partners.
Mr Harrison continued: “Connolly is built on a foundation of providing quality pathways for its employees to develop, employing local people, engaging with local businesses and delivering a human touch to the communities we operate in. As we expand the areas and business streams we offer, our intention is very much to continue operating as a family business that invests in its people to facilitate growth.”
With over a decade’s experience in planned maintenance and refurbishment for the social housing sector, the firm continues to work with a raft of local authorities, social housing providers and specialist care developments across the region.
