An ambitious Midlands-based construction firm specialising in the industrial, storage, and distribution sector, has been named as one of the UK’s best main contractors to work for.

MCS Group has been recognised as one of the industry’s top 10 employers following a nationwide industry poll that has seen more than 15,000 votes cast by representatives from the construction sector, including fellow constructors and their employees.

The Warwickshire-based company will represent the region at the national Construction Enquirer Awards in Birmingham later this year, where the overall winners will be announced.

MCS Group, which delivers new build schemes and refurbishment projects, is currently building several warehouse units at sites across the UK and has recently won contracts in Lutterworth, Hatfield and Bristol.

The company is planning to build a new 8,500 sq ft office headquarters at a site in Haywood Road, Warwick, in a £2.5 million investment.

MCS managing director, Keir Edmonds, said: “We’re hugely proud to have been voted one of the industry’s top contractors to work for.

“As a business we pride ourselves on delivering quality and cost effective construction projects but we also place a huge emphasis on investing in our people and in developing positive working relationships with our customers.

“To have been recognised by our peers in the construction industry is a real honour and demonstrates that our approach to doing business is valued by those that we work with.”

MCS Group recently forecast a sustained period of significant growth as it targets a £30 million increase in turnover this year. The constructor expects turnover in 2018 to reach £110 million, a rise of around £30 million on 2017’s figure of £79.7million, as it continues to increase its presence in the industrial, storage and distribution sector.

The company, which also operates in the retail, commercial and education sectors, has worked on a string of high-profile projects for the likes of Audi, BMW, Mclaren and Jaguar Land Rover since its inception in 2003, ranging in value from £50m to £250m.

The Construction Enquirer Awards will take place at Birmingham’s Hilton Metropole Hotel on 9th October, coinciding with UK Construction Week.
