In their own words
"I started working at MC Construction at 16 as an Apprentice Quantity Surveyor. My family are involved in construction and I share their passion. MCC has helped me to develop my QS career through gaining experience in different departments and supporting me through my BTEC Diploma, HNC in Construction and the Built Environment, and more recently, my BSc (Hons) in Quantity Surveying. Being part of MC Construction is amazing – it has such a warm feel like you are one big team and part of the family. We continue to deliver projects to our clients on time and to a high standard. I feel proud to have a career with MC Construction and to grow with the company."
Georgia Tennant, Assistant Quantity Surveyor
The directors are approachable and have an open style of management – the door is always open.
"As a young man forging a career in the construction industry, MC Construction has given me the opportunity to grow and develop from a trainee into a QS, capable of running a number of jobs at any one time. This development is aided by the company’s willingness to place greater responsibility on the junior members of the team. This is something that has certainly helped accelerate my development within the discipline.
I couldn’t ask for a better working environment. You feel like you’re working with friends rather than colleagues, with a good mix of both senior and younger members of the team.
MC Construction is the ideal company to learn and grow into the professional you wish to be."
Hal Birtles, Quantity Surveyor
The managers are really supportive and caring – both in work and with personal issues.
"Having worked in the building industry since leaving school, for companies of various sizes, I believe I have found the best fit. We are neither too large nor too small and everybody, from directors to site staff, is approachable and passionate about providing great service and a great product. Clients are aware of this as is evident in the amount of repeat business and number of enquiries via word-of-mouth commendation. Unusually for this day and age, we pride ourselves in our approach to clients, subbies and suppliers – we are playing the long game. I genuinely look forward to coming to work with like-minded people."
Neil Hamlett, Senior Estimator
I was impressed by the Family Day – the management came over as being very genuine.
