Facilities division creation marks new FM entrant

09 July 2017

Formation of a facilities services division has been announced by MC Construction to carry out maintenance and refurbishment works for clients.

MC Facilities Services will be led by Russ Forshaw, who joins from Manchester Central where he was director of FM and responsible for building maintenance and development, security and health and safety.

Prior to this, Mr Forshaw worked for Shepherd Construction for eight years.

His new role at the family-owned business will see him take a seat on the board.

The formation of the FM division is aimed at increasing its minor works activities, as part of developing an FM service, to provide a "one-stop-shop to clients", said the company's statement.

Included within its list of services will be insurance reinstatement, fire remedial works, maintenance of canals and waters, along with testing and inspection services.

Initially operating around the North West of England with eight staff, the new FM division intends to expand further afield and expects to create six more roles over the next 12 months.

MC Construction managing director David Lowe described the move as "an exciting and innovative development which complements our existing construction and development divisions".

In addition to meeting client demand, he also said there was "opportunity for growth" due to the ongoing investment in buildings and infrastructure in the Greater Manchester area.
