Award-winning MC Construction!

MC Construction has gained another accolade for its approach to staff training and development.

The company won the People Development category at the 12th annual North West Regional Construction Awards, which celebrate best practice and recognise exceptional companies and projects from across the region.

In their citation, the judges stated:

“The judges were impressed by how this company truly captured the value of their human resource. The opportunities for personal development within this organisation are outstanding.”

This accolade follows the company’s success in the British Chamber of Commerce’s 2017 Chamber Business Awards – winning  the commitment to people development prize in the Greater Manchester heat and then nationally. With a policy of nurturing talent from within its ranks and supporting staff who wish to study for a degree, the company has more than 20 employees working towards qualifications – with a ‘grow your own’ talent strategy and record number of apprentices on its books – seven in total.

David Lowe commented:

“We work hard to provide our staff with the best possible career and development opportunities, which helps us to combat the industry skills shortage, nurture our own talent and ensure our values are ingrained in our team. The main reason for our success as a business is our staff – they are at the heart of everything we do and we engage with them at every opportunity.

We are delighted that this commitment has been recognised with the people development honour at the North West Regional Construction Awards and we look forward to representing the region in the national awards later this year.”

The NWRCA ceremony was held at The Principal Hotel in Manchester and the awards were hosted by the University of Salford, the Centre for Construction Innovation and Constructing Excellence.

MC Construction will be entered into the Constructing Excellence National Awards, taking place in London, November 2018.
