Cardo Group was formed when social housing contractor LCB Group was sold by its founder, Liam Bevan, now CEO of Cardo Group, to private equity firm Buckthorn Partners.   

It was started to support social housing providers with compliance, retrofit, maintenance and decarbonisation services. 

“The director has considered that the Group has operated efficiently during the period and has continued to develop its operations to allow for further expansion of the Group’s activities,” a financial statement reads.  

“In line with previous trading years, the company has no borrowing in the year, apart from HP agreements on new vehicles to support a larger workforce. 

“The company has maintained a strong balance sheet and cash position throughout. 

“Bad debt continues to be very low, and the risk is massively reduced compared to traditional construction businesses.”
