2016 is set to be a good year for the Yorkshire-based construction firm HCM Projects. The business, part of the multi-disciplinary HCM Group specialising in a variety of services including interiors and major projects, has won £20m worth of contracts this year alone. And we’re only just starting the third month.
Working across the UK, HCM will kick-start four projects in the next few weeks including a £10m upgrade at Britvic Soft Drinks’ base at Beckton in East London – which includes production and warehousing facilities. The latest scheme follows HCM’s work on infrastructure and enabling works at Britvic’s plant as well as work for the company at one of its other sites. Britvic has become accustomed to HCM’s ability to develop long-lasting relationships with clients thanks to work that adds value and tackles the challenges clients face in a timely and cost-effective way.
HCM Projects is also gearing up for an extension and remodel of Primark’s Grimsby store having been appointed by real estate specialists BMO. The £4m contract will take place at Freshney Place, a shopping centre in the town. Elsewhere, a £2m contract has been won with Henry Boot Developments to extend a B&M store in Derbyshire. This will be followed by a £1m job on a two-storey extension at Sandal’s MINI dealership in Wakefield. This will create a new showroom area and offices.
Managing director Danny Mulqueen noted the record year experienced by HCM Projects in 2015 as indication of its blossoming success. To begin 2016 in such strong fashion is further indicative of the company’s reputation and ability. He also said it was important that HCM continued to win a diverse selection of work, tackling its team to challenge themselves. It’s “testimony to our versatility” he said, adding how HCM provides very “competitive pricing”. The success so far shows no signs of stopping. More tenders have been submitted for what Mulqueen describes as “exciting projects” with both “new and existing clients”. This will drive the company’s ambitious growth plans.
