MC Construction have officially opened their newly completed extension. The construction work, which cost in the region of £500,000 is expected to cater to the company’s increase in staff numbers at the company headquarters. The extension doubles the amount of space that is on offer to MC Construction, after the company outgrew their previous accommodation.
The two storey construction project was carried out at the construction company’s HQ which can be found on Oldfield Road in Salford. The new office accommodation has been designed and built to reflect MC Construction’s biophilia principle, which attempts to create an environment for employees that boosts wellbeing as well as levels of concentration. One of the ways this principle is accomplished is by incorporating nature into the workplace.
The new offices at the Salford headquarters include a living wall of plants and decor that has natural colours. Other features of the office accommodation are a great deal of natural light and a range of breakout areas for staff to make the most of. The new office space is thought to provide the staff of MC Construction will an improved working environment and will also improve communication between staff at the company due to the open plan layout of the offices.
The Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett attended the opening of the offices, and took part in the ceremony by cutting the ribbon to officially open the new extension. Also at the event were around 80 guests including the founders of the business John Purcell and Charles Lowe. MC Construction was founded in 1971 and were there to celebrate the opening of the new extension. To celebrate the founding pair, two meeting rooms in the extension have been named after the co-founders.
MC Construction has been based at their Salford location since November of 1984, after relocating from Withington in Manchester. The company brings a great deal to the region, and it is great news that the construction company were able to extend to suit their requirements and stay put in Salford.
