Case studies | Aug 23

Without any marketing, D2E has become the largest independent vertical transportation consultancy in the United Kingdom. This has not happened by chance, but rather a unique approach to measuring success.

D2E International VT Consultants Ltd (D2E) is a specialist consultancy within the construction industry with a focus on vertical transportation and façade access. Founded at the end of 2003 by Bill Evans (CEO), the company has steadily grown to a team of 32 with an annual turnover of £4m by providing their clients with lift, escalator, and façade solutions.

Evans, unhappy with the direction of consultancy in the industry during the 90s, decided that D2E’s mission statement during its formation was going to be a commitment to becoming the most knowledgeable consultants in the sector. And this is how they were going to measure success.

Two years after the company was founded, Mark Fairweather was brought into the fold by Evans. Fairweather excelled in the company and by 2020 was the Managing Director and a shareholder. Having previously worked with Evans, Fairweather knew he shared in D2E’s unique vision and wanted to help propel the business to achieve its goals.
