Established in 1988 by our Managing Director Paul Roberts, we provide mechanical, electrical and public health building services maintenance. In recent years we have seen considerable growth, with an increase in turnover of approximately 30%. We have taken on much larger competitors in the industry and continue to achieve great success. Currently, Jaguar has an experienced workforce of over 400 staff based in central London.
Our offices in Gracechurch Street directly opposite Leadenhall Market, are strategically placed to ensure our management team, including the Directors, are personally available for the mobilisation, implementation and on-going management of all our contracts.
Aside from our technical teams, our staff and clients are professionally supported by our excellent Human Resources, Mobilisation, Health and Safety, Business Development, Accounts and Energy Management departments.
Chris Howlett joined Jaguar Building Services as an 'Improver' at 1 Poultry in 2004 after completing his electrical qualifications 2000-2003. Chris quickly gained the required experience to be certified an approved electrician in 2005.
His career moved to the next level in 2007 with his appointment as the Site Manager for 3 sites: Fleet Place House, 32 Farringdon & 33 Cornhill. After 2 successful years Chris progressed, taking on one of the larger Jaguar sites, 1 Westferry Circus, where he led a small team and developed the Jaguar log book system.
Chris’ natural aptitude for process was recognised and he was identified as the right person to lead the mobilisation team at the end of 2009. Chris spent 7 years managing the mobilisation team until 2016. During this period he introduced mobilisation engineers and enhanced the processes and procedures, including the asset verification and conditional survey.
During 2016 an opportunity arose within the Account Management team and Chris was successful with his application and continues in the role to date.
Chris summarised his journey within Jaguar as exceptionally positive and feels privileged to have been afforded so many great opportunities. During his tenure with Jaguar he has seen the organisation grow from 80 to over 300 employees with a continual evolution of the business structure and procedures.
