McGoff Construction Barchester Healthcare
Eurocell's ‘one stop shop’ solution takes good care of McGoff construction
Product supply guarantees, on trend aesthetics, cost efficiencies and a sustainable product solution, are some of the key benefits for a leading construction business working in the healthcare sector, thanks to its ongoing relationship with Eurocell.
Altrincham-based McGoff Construction is an award-winning construction and integrated support services company benefitting from a one stop shop solution established over the past two years with Eurocell.
During this time, McGoff Construction has partnered with Eurocell for the specification and supply of window and doors solutions at several major care home developments around the country for its client, Barchester Healthcare.
As a result of this ongoing partnership, Eurocell offers McGoff Construction surety of product supply to meet its construction timescales, access to a national network of installers and fabricators, proven product performance and attractive aesthetics, and the sustainability value derived from specifying windows created from recycled plastic source materials. All of which are key to the delivery of the escalating new build programme taking place across the UK health sector.
Ramzi Bhashwan, business development manager from Eurocell, comments: “McGoff Construction had previously specified and procured the windows and doors solutions required for their construction projects from a variety of sources and suppliers. Though this had worked well, Eurocell felt we could deliver improved operational and commercial efficiencies for McGoff Construction by developing a one stop shop agreement.
“We undertook a number of discussions and follow up presentations with the company, in which we outlined how our technical expertise, range of services, market-leading products and commitment to sustainability could be utilised to support McGoff Construction and their national programme of build projects with Barchester Healthcare.”
McGoff Construction is working with Barchester Healthcare to develop, and construct care homes for the elderly across the UK. Typically encompassing 65-75 beds, the care homes provide a safe, secure, and well-designed living environment for elderly residents.
Several key factors helped convince McGoff Construction’s management team that establishing an ongoing supply relationship with Eurocell would deliver practical and commercial benefits for the planned schemes.
Ramzi continues: “As a national business, Eurocell is able to guarantee product supply, which helps McGoff Construction with their planning and construction timescales. We also work with a UK-wide network of installers and fabricators, so can provide McGoff Construction with access to conveniently located resources close to the development sites. This has ensured operational efficiencies are maximised as the schemes have progressed.
“The company specified Eurocell’s Logik Casement Window with associated facias and soffits for the Barchester Healthcare developments. As well as offering a long-term guarantee around performance and cost, the windows provide on trend aesthetics that complement the original design vision.”
A final powerful benefit resulting from the relationship is the ability to deliver sustainable product choices, something that is becoming increasingly important and relevant across the entire construction industry.
Sustainability sits at the heart of Eurocell’s offer. Using its own recycling plants to transform old PVC-U window and door frames into new and reusable PVC-U profiles through a closed loop scheme, the company is helping to drive efforts to increase the prevalence of greener product solutions that support the environment. This sustainable approach has been employed across the Eurocell supplied McGoff Construction projects, with all installed Eurocell windows emanating from a recycled source.
Ramzi concludes: “Through the creation of the single source supply relationship with McGoff Construction, Eurocell is dedicated to delivering a number of key business and commercial advantages to our client over the long term. These range from cost efficiencies to product supply peace of mind. In addition, the specified Logik window choice helps to drive the sustainability agenda forward. This is good for the construction industry as well as the planet.
“To date, we have completed seven health care developments together, with more planned as demand for such facilities intensifies.”
