McLaren serves the public sector in several areas, most notably through framework agreements and education projects with various local authorities.
Our size and approach mean we have the agility, flexibility and innovation that local authorities look for to deliver developments and projects quickly and to a high standard – with lifecycle costs kept to a minimum.
The legacy we leave is just as important. Site-specific community investment plans help us to build long-term relationships in the local area, with support from our dedicated corporate responsibility team. Plans include apprenticeship programmes, new jobs for local people, engagement with schools and curriculum support, alongside company-wide and local fundraising for charity.
How we work
Standalone projects for local authorities to build what the community needs.
Collaborative arrangements, working with a local authority to help bring its vision to life.
Working with a local authority to identify and realise a development opportunity.
