New car park as we drive ahead with expansion
The 190-space, four-floor facility is being built as part of our expansion and is the fourth project worked on by construction partner Stepnell on our Mere Way site in the last four years to future-proof the site for our current and future employees.
Previous projects have included the development of our Wellington House building, which houses our software teams, as well as the extension of the restaurant and office refurbishment at its Britannia House building which provides a modern open plan working environment for 350 employees.
Thomas Sewell, Stepnell regional director, said: “We’re delighted to be working on another project with MHR, a major employer in its local area and whose products and services have a great reputation across the UK.
“Having been involved in both new builds and refurbishments for MHR in the past, we have developed a good understanding of not only our client, but the type of finished product MHR expects. Relationships like this are important, because it leads to open and honest dialogue that ensures that any challenges can be addressed effectively.”
The build is taking place on a live site, with our employees continuing to work from the adjacent offices while construction is in progress. Because of this, we are working closely with Stepnell on the timing and sequencing of the build, as well as the relocation of essential services during the project.
Sewell said: “Working in a live environment is never easy but through careful planning and constant communication, we are aiming to deliver a really impressive finished product with the minimum of disruption to MHR’s staff.”
John Mills, Chairman of MHR, said: “Despite much economic uncertainty over the past three years, at MHR we have maintained a steady rate of investment and growth and expanded internationally with new offices in Ireland, the US and Singapore.
“Our continued success is creating new jobs for the East Midlands region and the development of our headquarters in Ruddington is part of our ongoing commitment to create a truly great place to work for our employees.
“The new car park is an exciting and welcome addition to our headquarters for our employees and it’s good to work again with a trusted partner in Stepnell, a company we have enjoyed an excellent working relationship with on several projects in the past and who have always delivered on our expectations.”
