Midlands building contractor starts work on £2.5m headquarters

MCSMidlands-based building contractor MCS Group is preparing to start construction of its new £2.5m headquarters.

The company, currently based in Claverdon, Warwickshire, is building its 8,500 sq ft headquarters at the Opus 40 site in Haywood Road, Warwick, as it enjoys a period of sustained growth in delivering projects across the industrial, storage and distribution sector.

MCS Group, which also operates in the motor, retail, and commercial sectors, has gained planning permission from Warwick District Council for the new development.

Founded in 2003, the company was first based at Stoneleigh Deer Park, now Abbey Park, before relocating to its current base at Claverdon. It currently employs 55 staff, which could rise to 65 once the new headquarters reach completion in early 2019.

The company has set itself a target of doubling its current turnover to around £200m by 2020 and increasing profits. In the past four years its turnover has increased from £38m to an expected £110m this year. Key clients include developers Chancerygate, Opus Land and Richardson. 

Founder and group managing director Keir Edmonds said: “Developing our new state-of-the-art headquarters in Warwick is a major investment in the future of our business and our workforce.

“It’s a clear statement of intent and demonstrates how ambitious we are to grow the company by delivering projects of the highest quality. Our new offices will allow us to showcase our expertise in commercial construction whilst providing a gateway statement headquarters building on to the Opus 40 site.

“We are market leaders in the motor retail sector but we are becoming increasingly well known for our expertise in delivering major projects in industrial, storage and distribution. That’s where we see a major opportunity to win substantial levels of new business and establish ourselves as one of the leading main contractors in the sector.”

MCS Group is currently constructing several warehouse units at sites across the UK and has recently won contracts in Swindon, Kettering, Lutterworth, Hatfield and Bristol.

The company has built and refurbished more than 300 car dealerships including Audi, BMW, Mclaren and Jaguar Land Rover since its inception in 2003.
