MCL Managing Director, David McLorinan, with over 30 years industry experience, said “We are absolutely delighted to be partnering with the CEF. As the voice of the construction industry in Northern Ireland, we feel that MCL Consulting can provide members with an excellent alternative to the cumbersome big environmental plc. Anyone involved in development and redevelopment will be aware that planning applications can trigger the need for a wide range of environmental surveys which are often frustratingly costly and can delay projects significantly, since they are commonly required to be completed for planning approval to be gained. This is where we can help. Our local multi-disciplinary development-friendly team can deliver a full range of environmental surveys in a cost-effective manner, minimising delays, and working closely with our clients within the wider development team to ensure that the project is successful.

We are also keen to deliver seminars/webinars and provide information resources to benefit members where we can. We really look forward to getting to know the different organisations in the CEF and seeing where we can add value and assist in development”. 

CEF Managing Director, Mark Spence said ‘The CEF is delighted to welcome MCL Consulting as a Commercial Partner at a time when environmental compliance and planning are ever more to the forefront of all investment in the built environment.  MCL bring significant experience of all matters environmental to assist our members, who represent 70% of construction activity in NI and we look forward to working together.
