Strong year for SCC Design Build
A concrete solutions specialist is celebrating a strong year of trading as, like many companies, it defies previous economic predictions that said the economy would implode should the UK leave the European Union.
SCC Design Build is on track for significant growth this year, with directors at the company saying that they are seeing growth across multiple sectors; as well as a boom in Private Rental Sector projects, that are predominantly being built in Manchester and Leeds.
Embracing the principals of DfMA® (Design for Manufacture and Assembly), SCC Design Build give clients a complete design, manufacture and installation service and build the whole pre-cast concrete solution off-site, enabling them to deliver projects to reduced timescales compared to more traditional methods of construction.
The company supply concrete solutions for the build of high-rise residential projects, student accommodation, hotels, prisons, multi-storey projects and other projects.
Eamonn O’Donnell, Managing Director of SCC Design Build, comments: “It is shaping up to be a strong year for SCC. We have a loyal customer base who know we can deliver the solutions they need for a diverse range of projects.
“We also have a strong pipeline of business for the next 18 months but we’re looking to talk to new clients who will be able to benefit from our resources and capabilities.”
Large facilities capable of producing 7000m2 of pre-cast components
SCC operate from a 10.7-acre site in Stockport, that has a 157,000 sq ft high-bay industrial workshop. This is where the company regularly produces 7000m2 of pre-cast components per week – the equivalent of two football pitches.
The company can also provide a bespoke pre-cast solutions service, combining 30 years’ knowledge and expertise to create customer-focussed solutions that are superior to the competition.
SCC has a back catalogue of successful projects and has worked with major housebuilders, architects and contractors including Balfour Beatty, Interserve and Bruntwood Construction.
On the construction sector and wider economy, Eamonn comments: “Clearly there are issues around skills and EU labour within the construction industry; and with Brexit on the horizon, the industry could be forgiven for caution going forward. However, we don’t see it this way and believe confidence is, and will remain, high across the sector. Fundamentally, investors still see the UK as a primary destination for investing in both commercial and residential projects.”
