McGoff builds partnership with Barchester Healthcare

Manchester-based McGoff Construction are nearing completion of a new £7m new build care home in Lichfield for Barchester Healthcare. Known as ‘The Spires’, the 70 bed care home on Stafford Road will bring much-needed care services and job opportunities to the area. The home will create around 100 jobs and provide high-quality care services for older people and people living with dementia.

Following the success of the Lichfield scheme, McGoff are now working together with Barchester Healthcare on a second scheme located on Pevensey Bay Road in Eastbourne. This project involves the demolition of the existing derelict 120 bed nursing home and development of a new state-of-the-art 80 bed care home. Tree protection works have now commenced on site with demolition works due to start later this month.

McGoff Divisional Construction Director, Chris Backhouse commented:

“Our ethos is heavily geared towards fostering long term, partnered relationships with our clients. We are delighted to be building a strong, synergetic partnership with Barchester Healthcare, working closely with them at all stages of the development process to support the successful delivery of their extensive new build programme.”

Mark Bennett, Property Director of Barchester said:

“We are pleased to be working with McGoff Construction on our new Lichfield site and have benefitted from their previous experience of new build construction in the sector. The Spires marks the start of an ambitious new build programme for Barchester and strong partnerships will play an important part in that programme delivery. We look forward to opening the home and welcoming the local community.”

Build commences on new £15m care facility in Formby

Build has commenced on a new, state-of-the-art £15 million care facility on Liverpool Road in Formby.

Located on the site of the former Mayflower Industrial Estate, the 76 bed expertly designed, purpose-built care centre will create approximately 80 jobs.

It will be the seventh care facility for New Care, a rapidly growing development-led care home operator. The 4,000sqm home will provide an exceptional clinical offering, including residential, nursing and specialist dementia care services.

Renowned for its compassionate, person-centred care, New Care’s individual approach is evident in its focus on ‘enablement’ which involves working with each resident individually to maintain their health and wellbeing and ensure they remain as independent as possible for as long as possible.

Catering for the aspiring needs of its residents in Formby and the surrounding areas, each of the well-appointed and restful bedrooms will feature en-suite wet rooms, while the home itself will offer several stylish communal lounges, elegant dining rooms, spa assisted bathrooms and beautifully landscaped gardens. The impressive care facility will also boast a hair salon and nail bar.

And, with its own dedicated hospitality team, the facility will provide high end hotel-style services that ensure continued quality of life and enjoyment for residents, including fine dining, concierge services and a busy and varied programme of activities and events.

CEO at New Care, Chris McGoff, comments: “We are delighted to have started work on site and are very much looking forward to introducing the New Care brand to Formby. The plans for our latest care facility are superb; we will deliver a sophisticated, modern, purpose-built home which offers high quality care with first class hotel-style services.”

Part of the McGoff Group, New Care works with its build partner, the multi-award winning principal contractor McGoff Construction, also part of the McGoff Group, throughout the entire design and construction process. Unique in its ability to acquire, design, build and operate, the McGoff Group provides a ‘one stop shop’ approach naturally de-risking the development process while adding value and enhancing growth.

Chris concludes: “It is a very exciting time for New Care with the company continuing to expand. Having recently opened care homes in Sale (Greater Manchester) and Lytham St Annes, and a further home due to open in Chester in early 2018, we are thrilled to have added Formby to our ever growing portfolio.”

Demolition on site has now commenced and construction of the care home is expected to be complete in early 2019.

McGoff secures landmark Adventure Centre

McGoff Construction has secured an £8m fitout contract, as part of a new £20m attraction, with family entertainment giant Merlin Entertainments.

Located within Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre (NEC), The Bear Grylls Adventure will open in 2018 targeting the adventure-based experiences market with a high ropes course, indoor skydiving (iFLY), climbing wall and assault course. The 8,000sqm park also features a themed shop and café.

This latest contract win for McGoff follows the completion of two hugely successful builds for Merlin; The £10m Castle Hotel at LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort and The £9m CBeeBies Land Hotel at Alton Towers Resort; both of which handed over earlier this year.

Group Commercial Director; Dave McGoff comments;
“We are thrilled to be working with our valued client; Merlin Entertainments to deliver this unique and exciting new attraction at the NEC. The Bear Grylls Adventure is the first of its kind in the world so to be involved in such a landmark scheme really is fantastic.”

McGoff brothers lead ground-breaking at Downtown

Signalling the start of construction at Downtown, the McGoff Group’s new flagship residential development, James, Declan, Dave and Chris McGoff hosted a ground breaking ceremony at the Woden Street site earlier this week.

The event was attended by more than 30 guests, including representatives from Manchester law firm Fieldfisher, AFL Architects, LRW Architects, Alliance and Wellesley Finance, the development property finance specialist that is providing the McGoff Group with a £39.9m funding facility to deliver the landmark scheme.

With its waterside location on the banks of the River Irwell, Downtown is an impressive project with a superior design that will not only transform the landscape on the border of Manchester and Salford, but it will also revolutionise the property market with its Manhattan-inspired hotel-style services and high end communal facilities.

Chris McGoff, director at the McGoff Group, comments: “The ground breaking ceremony at Downtown was a profound way to mark the start of build of this prestigious project. We are exceptionally proud of Downtown and the success we have already achieved on all levels, from acquiring such a prominent site and designing a truly inspirational apartment scheme to securing planning consent and selling more than 70% of the properties off-plan.

“Downtown is perhaps our most ambitious residential development to date and with construction now underway, we are very much looking forward to seeing this project take shape.”

Downtown will be built and block managed by the McGoff Group, including its award winning McGoff & Byrne Ltd principal contracting division and McGoff Group Facilities Services division, to ensure a truly ‘one stop shop’ approach to delivery and asset management from one of Manchester’s fastest growing entrepreneurial businesses.

New care home in Sale moves closer to completion

Work continues apace on a state-of-the-art new £10m care home in Sale, which is now just three months away from completion.

Build is well over half way at the new generation 57-bed care facility on Ashlands in Ashton-on-Mersey. The external brickwork and roof tiling are complete meaning the building is now watertight, and the 30 plus contractors and tradesmen on site are working hard on the interior to ensure the development remains ahead of schedule and ready for its planned opening in March.

Known as Ashland Manor, the impressive new care centre has been conceived and designed by Altrincham-based New Care, one of the UK’s fastest growing development-led care home operators and part of the multi-discipline and multi-award winning McGoff Group.

Construction is being undertaken by build partner and principal contractor McGoff & Byrne, also part of the McGoff Group.

When complete, Ashland Manor will cater for the aspiring needs of its south Manchester residents, offering high quality, person-centred care and an exceptional clinical offering, including residential, general nursing and specialist dementia care services, in an expertly designed purpose-built environment.

In addition to communal lounges, formal dining rooms and gardens, residents at Ashland Manor will enjoy the privacy of their own well appointed and restful bedroom, complete with en suite wet rooms, and a host of hotel-style services including fine dining, a hair salon, nail bar, concierge and a busy and varied programme of activities and events.

CEO at New Care, Chris McGoff, comments: “It’s less than three months until we open at Ashland Manor and I am delighted with the progress that is being made on site. Build is advancing into the final stages and the team is already working on the interior so we’re well on track to complete by our anticipated deadline of early March.”
