Company Profile


The McAvoy Group is one of the UK’s leading offsite construction specialists. An independent, family-owned business and an established principal contractor, McAvoy has been providing bespoke offsite solutions and interim modular buildings for nearly 50 years.

McAvoy delivers fast-track offsite healthcare schemes of the highest quality, with less disruption to patient care, improved quality, shorter build programmes, and greater assurance of completion on time and on budget.

Our specialist healthcare teams have the expertise to provide state-of-the-art facilities for:

  • Primary care
  • Acute services
  • Mental health
  • Care homes.

A Pioneering Offsite Healthcare Project in for Northumbria NHS Trust

Currently on site is the Group’s largest healthcare project to date – a £15m offsite scheme to construct a new wing at Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital.

The 6,500m2 three-storey building will be linked to the existing hospital and replicates its appearance. The first floor will be fitted out as part of this contract to accommodate one of the UK’s first purpose-designed Ambulatory Care units, with the other two floors fitted out in the next phase of the development.


Bespoke Offsite Solutions for Constrained Hospital Sites

McAvoy has extensive experience in developing bespoke building solutions for highly constrained hospital sites which may be completely inaccessible for in-situ construction. These sites can be developed, and existing facilities can be expanded rapidly and cost effectively, both vertically and horizontally.

We use the latest offsite building techniques to construct purpose-designed, permanent facilities for:

  • Ambulatory and emergency care
  • Endoscopy
  • MRI and other diagnostic services
  • Operating theatres
  • Laboratories
  • In-patient accommodation
  • GP surgeries and health centres.

Each project is designed to meet the precise requirements of the healthcare provider and the site.


From Extensions to Complete Hospitals

We have the capabilities to deliver seamless extensions which maintain patient flows, self-contained units and health centres through to full hospital complexes – in compliance with all relevant requirements – HTM, HBN, SHTM, WHTM and HAI-SCRIBE.

We recognise the importance of maintaining outstanding communications throughout a project and fully appreciate operational requirements when we are working in live patient environments. Here, offsite construction can significantly reduce disruption to patient care and to the local community by moving construction and fitting out offsite into a factory.

Our multi-storey building solutions are flexible and futureproof, designed to meet changing local needs and to maximise clinical space with the highest levels of efficiency.

Helping NHS Trusts Expand Capacity at Peak Periods

The Group also supplies interim buildings to help NHS trusts increase capacity at peak periods or for decant use while other hospital facilities are refurbished or redeveloped.

We work as a key partner on a number of public sector frameworks, including NHS Shared Business Services, NHS London Procurement Partnership, LHC Modular Buildings Framework, and the Southern Modular Building Framework. The modular frameworks complement the speed of offsite construction by providing OJEU-compliant, rapid and cost-effective procurement.


Digital Construction Technology to Improve Stakeholder Engagement

The Group has two purpose-built manufacturing centres spanning more than 150,000sqft and is leading the industry in its application of digital construction technologies such as virtual reality.

These new technologies optimise efficiency and enhance collaboration and stakeholder engagement from design to manufacture and site installation. McAvoy was the first offsite specialist to be accredited to BIM Level 2 and has won a series of awards for its pioneering work in digital construction.
