Offsite contractor M-AR welcomes Martin Burge as the new construction director
As construction director, Burge will be the link between departments to create perfect synergy across different areas of the business, ensuring that M-AR can continue to deliver quality projects, on time and on budget for its clients.
He will oversee the design, build, installation and aftercare elements, whilst ensuring any potential issues are fully factored into programme and cost schedules from the outset of a project.
M-AR staff wellbeing
His role also involves looking after the health, safety and overall wellbeing of all M-AR staff, both in the factory and on site.
Burge has more than three decades of construction experience under his belt, during which he has overseen the successful completion of numerous high-profile projects including the construction of the new state-of-the-art training facility at Leicester City Football Club for McLaren Construction.
“Offsite is increasingly relied on”
Commenting on the new role, Martin Burge said” “Over the last 30 years I’ve witnessed first-hand the impressive growth of the MMC and offsite construction sector, and it’s clear that offsite is increasingly relied on to deliver projects efficiently and cost-effectively.
“It’s an exciting time for the industry and I’m pleased to be a part of this journey with a forward-thinking company like M-AR, which is determined to continually challenge accepted ways of doing things in order to get the best possible outcome for its clients.
“Impressive projects coming up for M-AR”
“Each department within M-AR quite rightly has its own driving forces, as do our clients, but it’s my job to balance these different factors and considerations to keep to programme both in the factory and out on site.
“It’s my aim to make sure that all the different cogs in the M-AR machine work together smoothly to make the experience as straight forward as possible for clients.
“There are some really impressive projects coming up for M-AR and I’m looking forward to getting stuck in and working with our clients at every step along the way.”
M-AR is set to embark on an ambitious growth plan within the residential, education and commercial sectors over the next five years.
The company also showed impressive financial results for the year ending March 2021 with a turnover that had trebled on the previous year following a period of unprecedented growth.
