From the MEC team
With only a few days to go until we’re on site at Nantwich, we’re eager to prove we’re as reliable on one project as we are on the other for a new client.
Not one to dawdle, the MEC estimating team has been busy discussing a potential start building a retaining wall along Travis Brow Link Road in Stockport due to start in early December. No sign of slowing down for the MEC site teams.
We’re pleased to say we’ve been awarded another project working alongside Bowmer + Kirkland on a brand new Holiday Inn Express in Barrow-in-Furness. Moreover, Metnor have awarded us the care home project in Nantwich due to start next month. It’s always a delight for a client to recognise your efforts and we’ll be sure to give our all throughout the course of the projects.
On the flipside, our site teams are finishing off the new theatre in Widnes for Whitfield + Brown ensuring quality is their top priority. We hope to be working with Whitfield + Brown again soon.
After only a short period of working together, Metnor have brought us into a meeting to discuss new projects in the pipeline, one of which being another care home, this time over in Nantwich valued at £300,000.
Ultimately, our goal is to establish + maintain a happy working relation in addition to meeting/surpassing any expectation the client may have for us which makes it especially worthwhile to welcome old clients back as well as meeting new ones.
No rest for the MEC estimating team as they’ve closed negotiations for another project in Edinburgh, this time with a new client – Allenbuild. This project is a block of apartments containing 344 new build rooms.
Not only has that, but a project closer to home also been secured in Chester for Metnor. This time, the project is a 58 Bed Care Home specialising in dementia care roughly valued at £350,000.
Here’s to a long lasting and fruitful relationship with both of our new clients.
We’ve achieved a quick turnaround for the Heriot-Watt University project in Edinburgh successfully delivering their new learning centre on spec, on time and on budget. Another job well done for the MEC site team.
Learning the site limitations and adapting to them is the bread and butter of achieving above and beyond the client’s expectations. This couldn’t be any more true on our site at Kings Stables Rd, Edinburgh for Bowmer + Kirkland given it has extremely tight logistics with the project consisting of a Hotel, Offices, Student Accommodation + two Blocks of Apartments. We’re working tirelessly to ensure unwavering quality in our work.
On the other hand, we’re delighted to deliver yet another project for Kier. The £400,000 residential project located on Greenwood Rd, Wythenshawe progressed from start to finish with minimal issues. A rarity in this industry! Well done MEC site team.
Busy months ahead as we make a start on 3 brand new projects:
- Old Craighall Rd, Musselburgh for Cruden Homes
- New Theatre, Cronton College, Widnes for Whitfield + Brown
- Kings Stables Rd, Edinburgh for Bowmer + Kirkland
- Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh for Bowmer+ Kirkland
Kicking off to a good start and maintaining the momentum throughout is what we aim for on any new project to allow us to focus on the aspects that make good quality building great. And looking at our previous projects, we’ve not stopped delivering top quality masonry just yet.
Following a few meetings with the Whitfield + Brown team, we’re happy to announce we’ll be starting on their next project over in Widnes. Comprising this project is the construction of a brand new theatre extension for Cronton College over in Widnes due to start in a couple months’ time.
Bowmer + Kirkland, a long lasting client of ours, has got in touch for a mixed-use development project set in the heart of Edinburgh valued around £800,000 due to start next month as well as adding another extension to an old project of ours at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh. We’re always happy to be back in touch for another project with Bowmer + Kirkland
