Award winning construction safety products, invented, designed, and perfected by Brilliant Ideas

Designed, tested and certified

Our products are designed, rigorously tested and certified to make your construction site a safer place to work. Each product has been developed to improve efficiencies and safety – especially when you compare them to traditional construction methods.

Invented to meet the demands of modern construction sites

Each invention has been created by Chris Massey. Chris started developing problem solving innovations more than 30-years ago, when he couldn’t find products on the market to improve the safety and efficiency of his own employees. Most of the products in our range have been created in response to accidents or near misses. They’ve all been tried and tested and come with certifiable paperwork. In all, Brilliant Ideas owns 32 patents.

In 2022, Brilliant Ideas won Equipment Specialist of the Year at the Construction News Specialist Awards. And in 2021, Chris was winner of ‘Innovation Champion’ at the Building Innovation Awards.

Brilliant Ideas is the sister company to Beresford’s Flooring, the industry leading specialists for in-situ concrete works packages on steel framed buildings with precast floors.

Award winning construction safety products

Don’t just take our word for it. Our inventions have won multiple awards. They’re used by some of the biggest names in construction on projects all around the world, including: HS2, Barcelona Cathedral, Google HQ Kings Cross, Manchester Metro, Emirates Stadium, Fulham Football Club, Gatwick Airport, Heathrow Airport, London Guildhall, Olympic Park, Tottenham Hotspur, London Bridge, Anfield Main Stand, Wimbledon Court One and Sandwell Aquatics.

“We operate on a nationwide basis and most of our sites utilise mobile cranes. When ground conditions determine crane outrigger mats are required, we always recommend ALIMATS® as they are handleable and strong.”
