Mackenzie Construction looks to strengthen foundations with new industry collaboration initiative
Priding itself on fostering a culture of respectful challenge towards existing practices in order to achieve continuous improvement, Mackenzie Construction has launched a new collaboration initiative which seeks to enhance capabilities and capacities to meet client needs and deliver best value for all.
Through partnering with other industry leaders, the firm hopes to use ‘Strengthening our Foundations’ to share knowledge of industry innovation and methods, leveraging these partnerships to continually test, review and evolve best practice.
Andy Dalrymple, managing director at Mackenzie Construction, said: “The first two of our collaborative partners, Panton McLeod and Enisca Ltd, offer further opportunity to our collective client base and supply chain. Together, we will foster new and innovative working practices to affect positive change across the water industry.”
For over 20 years, Panton McLeod has worked to protect, maintain and improve water quality within treatment and distribution systems. With five main service streams in clean water projects, (including asset inspection, cleaning & disinfection, pipeline commissioning, outside the fence treatment and emergency response) Mackenzie Construction’s collaboration with Panton McLeod looks to create increased efficiency to both teams and add greater value to their collective client base.
Jim Panton, chief executive of Panton McLeod, said: “Together, we are able to compound more collective knowledge, as well as tangible benefits on our delivery. Mackenzie Construction are an Industry Leader who share our values and I am eager to explore what this will enable us to do, as we all move forward together.”
The next of Mackenzie’s collaborations is with Enisca Ltd. Not only does Enisca Ltd have strong MEICA (Mechanical, Electrical, Instrumentation, Control and Automation) capability and expertise, it also shares Mackenzie Construction’s values and beliefs in maintaining integrity in its relationships, in nurturing talent and in delivering high quality work safely and efficiently to ensure the best result for its clients.
Conor King, managing director of Enisca Ltd, added: “Our collaboration creates the perfect blend of complementary skills across Civil Engineering & MEICA. Our collective capability, knowledge and experience become even more robust and exciting for our clients, and for the wider industry as we move forward together.”
In the water sector specifically, business efficiency and overall performance can be improved through the establishment of best practice and the pursuit of opportunities for innovation. Best practice working methods are often established through improvements in operational kit and through utilisation of advances in technology.
Andy Dalrymple added: “By ensuring that all of our site teams working in the water sector are sharing information and operating to the same set of standards and procedures, we can improve the consistency of our performance in the areas of both, safety and quality.”
