McGoff Construction has appointed Brendan Caloe, from Bolton, to head up its Special Projects Division within the Group.
McGoff Group Special Projects delivery plans include luxury residential developments for the Group’s Joint Venture entities, including Altair Phase I in Altrincham and a new apartment scheme on Warwick Road in Old Trafford. Brendan presides over the delivery of exciting projects on behalf of the Group’s related operational businesses, including the unique food and hotel complex Market 41 Urmston.
Brendan will grow a dynamic team responsible for taking projects from site feasibility though design development and ultimately build completion. These buildings will seamlessly align with the bespoke and often complex requirements of the businesses charged with operating within leisure and residential sectors.
Brendan has extensive experience in senior positions in these sectors. His career spans over 30 years, which includes 18 years at the Eric Wright Group, a short period at Hurstwood Construction as Construction Director before moving to Signature Developments. More recently, Brendan worked for Zerum Consult, where he managed the pre-construction and delivery of Hotel Football, the early phases of the Stock Exchange Hotel and initial reviews of St Michael’s, followed by four years at Northhold Group.
Commenting on his appointment, he says: “I was attracted to the family heritage of McGoff Construction and its strong background of building for generations. The Group’s ability to exercise extensive control through its in house delivery capabilities via the integration of its specialist subcontractor Panacea and McGoff Group Facilities Services, also appealed to me.
“The Group’s holistic and totally aligned approach to development and operating businesses within the build environment is very much in line with my own strategies. I firmly believe there is so much scope for growth for the new Special Projects division and I am looking forward to making an immediate start.”
Dave McGoff, Managing Director at McGoff Construction, adds: “Brendan is the perfect fit for an organisation such as ours as we construct, operate and maintain buildings and businesses within the leisure and residential sectors. A valued member of the team, we will be drawing on his vast experience as a client and indeed professional consultancy capacities.”
Away from work Brendan is a proud grandad and enjoys spending time with his family, as well as friends. He is also a big rugby union fan.
