The importance of trust

We’ve worked with McLaren Construction on numerous successful projects over many years. That mutual respect and trust was instrumental in our securing the contract as groundworks and frame contractor on a new leisure building at Intu Lakeside Shopping Centre in Essex.

McLaren named us as its preferred partner for this project at an early stage. Our construction and tender teams were heavily involved in providing support to its bid throughout the tender process.

The project is a two-storey building with retail and leisure units. Construction consisted of piled foundations, suspended ground floor bed, steel frame with holorib concrete topping, ground and first-floor slabs and reinforced concrete frame, with portal frame to the first floor.

Externally, we laid kerbs and edgings and prepared sub-bases to receive tarmac and paving finishes laid by other contractors.

Delivering this project to an extremely rapid programme required exemplary logistics management and close coordination with other trades. Our excellent relationship with McLaren, together with our own integrated approach, ensured the project’s success.
