Mackoy teams up with Persimmon in Portchester

Since May Mackoy have been onsite in Portchester, helping to break new ground for what will be a new 120 unit residential development in the area, delivered in conjunction with our friends at Persimmon Homes. And we have to say it’s a great site (well, we don’t have to say that, but it’s what we really do think).

  • Client: Persimmons South Coast.
  • Site Name: Harbourside View.
  • Site Address: Cranleigh Road, Portchester.
  • Contract Summary: 120 residential housing units.

Not only is the site flat (always a great foundation for any building project) but the location couldn’t be better. With not only the Harbour but also AFC Portchester and Cams Golf Club nearby. Football, golf and sea-adjacent – what more could you want in a new home?

We’ve been lucky enough to secure the contract to deliver the entire groundworks and sewage treatments for the development – which Persimmon have charmingly (and accurately) named Harbourside View.

Based just minutes from the coast on Cranleigh Road, the completed site will offer a selection of 2,3,4 and 5 bed housing. As well as an open public space and children’s play area, perfect for keeping the little’uns entertained. All of which will be ready for occupancy when the site completes in May of 2020.

Not to mention the location enjoys great access to the A27, M3 and M27, as well as proximity to local supermarkets and amenities. With Portchester town centre itself just one mile from the new Harbourside View development.

We pride ourselves on delivering a first-class service onsite to our clients, with only the most skilled and qualified professionals within the civil engineering and groundworks sector. And our team working at the Persimmon site in Portchester are no exception.

We are always on the look out for great talent to join our team, if you think you’re up to the standards we expect, and have the skills and training we require (see our Mackoy careers page for more info) you’ll fit in nicely with our team.

So if you’re a local worker with experience in civil engineering and groundworks (and looking for a job) take a look at our current vacancies. We’re especially interested in hearing from Groundworkers and foremen. But we’re always on the hunt for talented project managers, engineers (and more) to join our expanding team. Particularly applicants operating in the Hampshire, Dorset, Sussex and Surrey areas, where the bulk of our contracts take place.

In fact in just 7 short years our headcount has shot up from 7 staff to over 300 (and counting). And we’ve taken on contracts with some of the UK’s biggest housing providers. Continuing to win new tenders for new jobs week on week. So there’s plenty of scope for frequent and regular work when you join forces with us. Not to mention awards and recognition for star employees, together with group days out on a regular basis.
