One of the North West’s leading construction firms, McGoff Construction, has secured more than £100 million worth of work for 2021.
The contracts are primarily for the McGoff Group’s asset backed operating businesses in the care and education sectors; New Care and Back to the Garden Childcare, as well as supporting revered clients with their nationwide roll our programmes in the health care and food retail arenas.
The Altrincham-based company has, throughout the pandemic, continuously evolved its holistic approach to design and construction, investing heavily in pre and post construction services, thereby expediting the commencement of fully designed projects, constructing within the optimum timeframe and supporting client’s mobilisation at build completion.
A consistent approach throughout the development journey effectively removes the inefficiencies and disconnect usually associated with procuring construction services. A partnering ethos has enabled early client engagement during the feasibility and design phase, ultimately de-risking the process for all stakeholders involved.
This ethos has led to improved visibility in respect of the work ahead, allowing the teams to think carefully about the uniformity of design to drive efficiencies at every phase of a project.
Furthermore, McGoff Construction has embraced modern methods of construction through the establishment of specialist subcontract businesses in lightweight metal superstructures, passive fire protection and mechanical and electrical services. Proffering specialist subcontract support to consultant teams enables designs to be fully developed via innovative software, well in advance of construction commencing, and provides cost certainty from the outset, whilst ensuring the building is fit for purpose and statutory complaint at completion.
The strategy has paid off with the company in an incredibly strong position, having fostered excellent relationships with Blue Chip clients, including New Care, Barchester and Care UK in the care sector, as well as Sainsbury’s and CO-OP in the retail sector.
Dave McGoff, Director at McGoff Construction, comments: “The Covid-19 pandemic has certainly brought challenges to the construction industry and driven change. From the outset we made communication our priority, with clients, the supply chain, subcontractors and consultants, as well as with every member of staff, navigating a way through the uncertainty and successfully establishing a clear direction for the business.
“One of the main objectives in the last couple of years, and indeed during the pandemic, has been to become as self-sufficient as possible, which is now very much a reality. We are constantly self-generating work through the Group’s asset backed operational businesses, having built 11 care homes for New Care, one day nursery for Back to the Garden Childcare and various residential schemes for Villafont, notably Downtown, the £53 million apartment scheme in Manchester.
“We have taken time to review and enhance certain parts of the business, expanding our self-delivery strategics in the last 18 months with the introduction of Panacea Building Systems, the establishment of Downtown Asset Management (DAM) and the launch of a Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) offering within the existing McGoff Group Facilities Services.
“These new divisions will help us gain further control and drive efficiencies in the delivery of our developments. With an uncertain economic period expected, our evolution will safeguard the sustainability of work in the coming months and years.”
With 48 years’ experience, McGoff Construction is a privately owned, multi award winning construction and integrated support services business.
