About Us

McLaren is one of the UK’s most successful privately owned businesses, with over 620 employees and a turnover
in 2016 of £480 million and an expectation of exceeding
£600 million in 2017.

We have remained fully focused on the quality of service we provide our customers whilst enhancing our profile and reputation in key market sectors such as commercial offices, residential, mixed use, retail, student accommodation, logistics, education, hotels and leisure.

After last year’s successful reorganisation into five regional construction companies, the London, South, Midlands & North, Major Projects and International divisions have seen better alignment with our customers, enabling us to build on our existing relationships whilst creating a stronger business.

An exciting new venture for 2017 is the formation of McLaren Prime (Special Projects), working within the McLaren South region mixed use, logistics and distribution team. Prime are ideally placed to carry out projects generally in the
niche sub £10 million range.

To continue this trend and to capitalise upon our market position and our secured turnover, the beginning of 2017 has seen us make further improvements to the running of McLaren,
by enhancing our management team.

The McLaren Construction Group Plc new main board will comprise of David Murphy, Dave Smith, Maurice Archer and Craig Young, led by Chairman Kevin Taylor and supported by
Phil Pringle, who will now take the position of
Group Executive Director being responsible for the strategic growth of our business.

All supporting divisions will report into Regional Directors, Regional Managing Directors and Managing Directors depending upon the activity and ultimately be managed by members of the new Main Board.

We are very proud of McLaren and our colleagues within, and will jointly strive to become the UK’s National Contractor of choice whilst also enhancing our reputation within the UAE.
