Demolition in the East
Mick George Ltd have made no secrets of their intentions when it comes to quickly establishing a growing presence in the construction industry, but what is the business doing that distinguishes them from those that have failed beforehand?
The latest milestone that the company has achieved could be a key indicator. Mick George Demolition, a trading division within the parent business was launched just two years back and already they have surpassed the 120-project mark.
Where that may be judged a success elsewhere, the strategy is somewhat more evolutionary at Mick George with the current standing only utilised as a ‘springboard’ to rapidly expand the organisation.
Mick George Demolition’ hasn’t managed to escape the ‘dynamic’ approach that has served the overarching brand so well in delivering some impressive results, with immediate changes forthcoming regarding the business’s hierarchy, territories covered and new site acquisitions.
The fresh-eyes tasked with taking Mick George Demolition’ to the next level is Liam Hennessy, who has recently been appointed Director, Head of Demolition at the company.
Following in his father’s footsteps, Liam has endured 14-years in the industry and has certainly earned his stripes in good company. The previous 11-years have been spent at McGee Group Ltd working on some high-profile projects that includes; Leicester Square Hotel and Cinema, Commonwealth House and Hammersmith Hospital.
Impressed by the ‘limitless scope and ambition’ presented to him, Liam wasn’t about to let such an opportunity pass.
Liam will be supported by a team that between them possess in excess of 122 years’ experience in various, related positions within the industry.
The personnel driving the operation aren’t the only changes of significance either.
Much of the existing Demolition work has been completed across East Anglia and Midlands regions. However, that is likely to change imminently, with Norfolk and Suffolk very much now within the functioning boundaries, courtesy of a significant investment to acquire fourteen new sites throughout the entire Eastern district of the country.
Not hanging around, Mick George Demolition has already struck a lucrative partnership with McCarthy and Stone, the UK’s leading retirement housebuilder with 51,000 apartments within their property collection. The agreement has returned contracts for demolition works on multiple projects in the East. It doesn’t stop there either, the operational expansion has also landed works at Crown Point Depot, Norwich.
In total, Mick George Ltd now own 35 individual sites, made up of quarries, landfill sites, recycling centres, concrete batching plants, soil washing and hazardous waste treatment facilities. The amalgamation of each site location is not through chance, with every setting strategically selected to strengthen the overall offering from Mick George Ltd to the construction industry.
Looking at the current order book for Mick George Demolition the future looks bright, as the division’ continues to establish itself as a core service within the Mick George portfolio, progressively enhancing the organisations reputation among the construction industries elite.
Michael George, Contracts Director at Mick George Ltd commented: ‘’The Demolition’ division has built solid foundations in the last two years and now the plan is to emulate what we have achieved with our other contracting provisions, further improving and expanding the service. We’re confident that the changes will only aid our objectives and although our forecasts are high, we remain optimistic in attaining them.’’
