Britcon creates senior M&E role as requirement expands

Building and civil engineering business, Britcon has expanded its in house expertise with the creation of a Mechanical & Electrical position across its offices in Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire and Wakefield, West Yorkshire. 

Patrick Kenworthy has joined in the role bringing over 30 years’ experience in building services management. A qualified energy assessor, Patrick has an extensive track record in delivering complex projects across both the public and private sectors with particular knowledge in education, health and renewable energy. He joins from Centrica DE&P where he recently completed a 20MW generation plant in Scunthorpe’.

Paul Clarkson, Managing Director at Britcon, said: “We are delighted to have Patrick on board for this newly created role. We have expanded our remit for M&E installations in a major way and this often accounts for nearly 50 per cent of the brief on many projects.  It makes perfect sense for us now to create an in-house role with immediate capacity to offer direct energy assessment and dialogue with our subcontract supply chain.” 

The appointments reflect continuous growth for Britcon, in particular on highly complex projects where bespoke and specialist expertise is required. These include a new £14m product line for Kemira Chemicals and the recently completed £30m anaerobic digestion plan for ReFood in Dagenham. 

Britcon is a £45m turnover business headquartered in Scunthorpe and directly employs over 100 people on its project sites across the UK.  Key contracts secured in the last six month includes an £11m contract with North Lincolnshire Council for two transformational projects in Scunthorpe, 13 new industrial units at flagship regeneration site, Markham Vale and a number of projects for Sheffield Teaching Hospitals Trust.

Britcon, which has been established for more than 26 years, is currently listed by the London Stock Exchange in its latest report of ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Europe’.
