MCRMA welcomes SPV Special Projects as new member

  • 3 Nov 2023

Building envelope refurbishment specialist SPV Special Projects has become the latest member of the Metal Cladding & Roofing Manufacturers Association (MCRMA), helping to strengthen its position at the forefront of technical innovation, quality and skills development.

The West Midlands based roofing and cladding contractor, which is a division of Phoenix Consortia alongside sister-companies Howard Evans and Ivor Parnham Building Services, has established itself as a market leader through its capabilities across many different sectors, including the commercial, industrial, hospitality, retail, education and healthcare sectors.

Joining the MCRMA was regarded as another important step for SPV Special Projects to demonstrate its dedication to continuously improving technical standards relating to the building envelope, and ensuring it continues to adopt the latest best practice in every project.

‘An important role’

Kate Whatley, Commercial Manager at SPV Special Projects, says: “We are delighted to have joined the MCRMA, which I believe has played an important role in helping the metal building envelope sector drive up standards for decades.


“We value their training, guidance and expertise as well as the opportunity to collaborate regularly with like-minded industry professionals at the MCRMA members’ meetings. Their online resources, such as the CPD-certified guidance documents, are already widely used by our team to help us maintain and develop our knowledge and deliver first class installations for our clients.

“Our membership with the MCRMA also affirms to our stakeholders including clients, supply chain and insurers our commitment to professional development, the highest levels of professionalism and collaboration across the industry.”

SPV Special Projects already differentiates itself through its expertise, in depth knowledge and commitment to exceptional standards of work, which has resulted in the company attracting high levels of repeat business and many personal recommendations. With a workforce of over 100 fully trained and skilled operatives, supported with a diverse fleet of vehicles and equipment, the company’s in-house resources can cater for all kinds of construction contracts, as demonstrated through its work for clients including Jones Lang Lasalle, Engie and the NHS.


Family-based values

Strong family-based values continue to underpin the business and, through its continued investment in developing the next generation of building envelope professionals through numerous apprenticeships and regular training programmes, it has an excellent platform for growth.

Clare Fenton, Chair of the MCRMA, adds: “It is fantastic to welcome Kate and her team at SPV Special Projects to our association. They bring a unique mix of technical expertise and experience from an installation perspective, focused on refurbishment, that I think all our members will benefit from. I look forward to the contribution that they will make.”

The MCRMA is one of the UK roofing and cladding industry’s longest established associations, supporting everyone in the metal system supply chain, as well as assisting specifiers and clients commissioning these systems.

Its membership includes product and system manufacturers and suppliers, stockholders, installers, independent roofing and cladding inspectors, plus a host of industry support service providers.

The association’s dedication to being ‘the building envelope authority’ is reflected in the extensive technical and training resources it provides, as well as its active participation in shaping future industry standards through its collaboration with the Construction Products Association (CPA).
