New Kitchen opens its doors at Flixton Infants School

Construction work to provide a new kitchen and upgraded boiler room at Flixton Infants School is now complete.

Locally based Principal Contractor; McGoff and Byrne Limited were engaged to construct an extension to the school to provide new kitchen facilities following the introduction of Universal Free School Meals across the country.

School Headteacher Steve Bentham comments:
“The McGoff & Byrne Team; Site Manager Eamonn Grogan, Contracts Manager Jon Bishop and QS Chris Backhouse worked closely with the school throughout. There are now around 160 very happy children enjoying hot, quality meals that have been prepared on site.

Although a small project, the kitchen extension will have a great impact on the pupils at Flixton Infant School for years to come. The build, which took around 16 weeks to complete, has provided the school with a facility that is more than just a building. It opens up a whole range of possibilities for our pupils’ and for community events which we will enjoy exploring thanks to the work of McGoff and Byrne.”

Traditionally a North West Regional Contractor; McGoff & Byrne now operates on a national basis securing the ‘Northern Roots with National Reach’ Award at The Grafters Awards 2015.

Declan McGoff, Operations Director at McGoff & Byrne, said:
“We are proud to have worked with Trafford Council for over 20 years and look forward to working with them for many years to come helping to enhance local facilities for our local community”.

Building work begins at Flixton Infant School

McGoff and Byrne has been awarded a £300,000 contract to build a new kitchen at Flixton Infant School.

The project also includes additional services space and most of the work is expected to be completed during the summer holidays.

The Altrincham company takes the role of principal contractor and is responsible for the demolition of the existing kitchen followed by the build of a new and improved, bigger kitchen. They will also upgrade the boiler room.

As the latest contract win for the privately owned construction company, its significance highlights how the business continues to go from strength to strength, picking up new clients and expanding its portfolio. Declan McGoff, Operations Director at McGoff & Byrne, said: “We are thrilled to have been appointed principal contractor at Flixton Infant School. Although our work is often national, even international, it is always good to secure projects in Greater Manchester, and this particular contract is a pleasure to be part of as it is so local to us.

“As a company we are renowned for our family values and commitment to working with clients above and beyond what is expected. We have plenty of expertise in the educational sector and are very much looking forward to this project taking shape, further enhancing the school’s facilities.”

Work has already commenced on site, which is estimated to take 14 weeks.
