McLaren overcomes planning challenges from the ground up, to deliver extra commercial and client value
McLaren Construction is an award winning contractor with an established reputation for consistent delivery of outstanding projects across all market sectors.
McLaren is one of the UK’s most successful privately owned businesses, with over 480 employees.
It specialises in new build, refurbishment and fit out projects for major blue chip customers.
McLaren’s Operations Director, Domonic Egan was awarded a Gold Medal at the CIOB Construction Manager of the Year Awards for this project.
When the owners of Marble Arch House & 62/64 Seymour Street appointed McLaren Construction to create a new seven-story West End office block and remodel the adjoining building, they did so knowing that the firm had never let them down on previous retail work.
McLaren recognised the opportunity to extend its services, and determined to do a stellar job. It brought in Operations Director, Domonic Egan, to take charge.
The project delivered challenges aplenty: neighbour noise issues, the ground-works contractor going bust, plus problems in the ground itself.
Great communication with the client was just one of the reasons that Domonic was awarded a Gold Medal in the CIOB Construction Manager of the Year Awards – but the planning process that the team displayed in coping with challenge after challenge was undoubtedly partially responsible.
The entire project was planned using McLaren’s standard project management tool: Powerproject.
