The Salford-based contractor has appointed Rise Homes chief executive Nigel Rawlings as a non-executive director. 

Rawlings, who co-founded healthcare property firm Assura in 2003 and also served as its chief executive, has joined MC Construction to provide strategic advice to its executive team. 

“MC Construction is a long-established construction company which has a great reputation and wins substantial repeat business,” Rawlings said. 

MC Construction is a family-owned business that undertakes building projects throughout the North West.  

The company’s previous projects include the refurbishment of Stockport Magistrates’ Court and the extension and upgrade of the Avenue Medical Centre in Blackley. 

“I’m looking forward to playing my part as a member of its board of directors to help it develop further over the coming years,” Rawlings added. 

After leaving Assura, Rawlings founded Rise Homes, previously Housing Capital Property, in 2012. 

Among Rise’s current projects is the residential element of the £120m Stockport Interchange, a 196-home development being delivered in joint venture with Cityheart. 

As well as MC Construction, Rawlings is also a non-executive director at Rowlinson Constructions.

David Lowe, managing director of MC Construction, said: “Nigel has vast experience gained over many years at the forefront of the property and construction industry, including the commercial, residential and healthcare sectors. 

“He has also been a pioneer in the build-to-rent sector with Rise Homes. Nigel brings a wealth of knowledge to our board and will play an important role as we shape our business for the future to take it to the next level. There are great synergies with his other business activities and interests which also provide a tremendous fit for the company.”
