Princebuild Ltd - Case Study


With over 45 years in the industry, Princebuild Limited are a well-established and respected business which provides expertise across a wide range of construction and maintenance services. Based in Peterborough, the family-run business operates across the East of England area, delivering quality work that includes construction, refurbishment and insurance.

What they needed

In order to support Princebuild, we put a plan in place to develop and implement a new Training Matrix company-wide for 200+ employees. As well as management of the system to track and identify requirements, we also coordinate subsequent training provision across the business.


The continuous successful management of Princebuild’s training matrix has meant they now have a more effective and proactive training strategy. Furthermore, as the relationship between ESS and Princebuild has developed, so has our understanding of their business. Subsequently, we can deliver dedicated training courses that are tailored to best suit the company’s needs and highly relevant to the company’s policies, processes and most importantly the safety of their employees.
