Russ Forshaw spent eight years at Shepherd Construction before joining Manchester Central in 2011, where he was director of facilities management.

His new role as director of MC Facilities Services sees him join the family-owned company’s board.

The division will focus on expanding MC Construction’s minor works activities and on developing a facilities management service for clients. It will also offer insurance reinstatement and fire remedial works, maintenance of canals and other waterways and testing and inspection services.

David Lowe, managing director of MC Construction, said: “The creation of MC Facilities Services is an exciting and innovative development which complements our existing construction and development divisions. It will enable us to meet demand from clients and to become a one-stop shop for their needs. We also see an opportunity for growth due to the large number of new buildings and infrastructure investment in and around Greater Manchester.

“We are delighted that Russ has joined the business to head MC Facilities Services. He has an excellent track record in construction and facilities management, and is ideally-suited to this new role. He’s an experienced senior leader with superb knowledge of a broad range of building disciplines and techniques. We’re confident Russ will be a huge success in his role and will help to drive the company forward towards our £20m turnover goal by 2018.”
