About Us


GenIsis Utilities Ltd is a family business, established in 2013, with a clear vision to become a leading contractor within the communities which we work. We provide domestic and commercial services within the Construction Industry with divisions specialising in plumbing, gas and electric.Founder and CEO, Kathleen Harris-Leighton, recognised a gap in the market to provide a one stop shop for quality construction and trade services delivered in a professional manner whilst assuring clients of their security. Her vision was to build a company with the ethos of ensuring quality, efficiency and a high standard of workmanship whilst re-building confidence in domestic tradesmen.
Kathleen recognised that Innovation is key and made the commitment to champion modern working practices by encouraging women into construction and domestic trade.Although our expertise lies within the general building, refurbishment, electrical and gas maintenance market, we are equally able to undertake any type of construction project using the same basic principles of delivering high quality work, on time, and meeting the expectations of our clients in safe and secure manner.
We recognise that domestic trade and construction technologies are always evolving and we are taking responsibility for the mark we make on the environment. We have developed and maintain a robust environmental policy which shows that at GenIsis Utilities, we care about protecting our future. We are serious about merging ‘green’ practices into our business and aim to share our knowledge with the industry through innovation and maintain our Green stance with our customers, partners and supply chain.Although young as a company we are old in experience and our growth has largely been achieved through repeat custom, which is the cornerstone of our business, and a testimony to the confidence that our valued customers place in us.
A significant proportion of our work comes from repeat business with long term clients with whom we were successful in establishing excellent relationships based on our straight-forward and open approach, the expertise of our tradesman, high standards of health and safety, value for money and quality of work.We invest in our people by actively encouraging and promoting all of our employees to up-skill and train for personal development. Through our forward thinking vision, we recognised the contribution of a skilled workforce. This is why the company pioneered into providing construction based training by establishing the GenIsis Training Academy.
“I am passionate about embracing change in the Construction and Trade Industry by encouraging women into construction. I believe success in the Industry requires the ability to balance vision with not just customer service, technical expertise and experience, but the personal talent to deliver the very best solutions.”
