The Rowans Care Centre, Macclesfield
10 Bed Extension

The Rowans Care Centre is owned and operated by Canterbury Care, a national care home operator with over 50 homes and who has been a client of Murdoch Group for over seven years.

This project is the latest of many extensions and upgrade projects carried out by Murdoch Construction and was meticulously planned and programmed in conjunction with the management staff to ensure minimal disruption and disturbance to the busy and active facility.

Our experience and knowledge of this sector allowed the 26 week programme to be bettered by 3 weeks providing the client with the added benefit of expedited Care Commission Registration and occupancy.

The distant location from our Ayrshire base did not have a negative impact on the project and, in fact, may even have benefited the client in terms of longer productive shifts from all trades. Local labour was organised in advance and tracked throughout the programme to ensure no delays were experienced.


Having used the Murdoch Group over a period of 7 years, I would say that they carry out all contracts with professionalism and to a high standard. Their employees are always courteous and work well in the confines that a care home environment demands in order to ensure minimal disruption to both residents and staff alike.

To date they continue to carry out Programmed Maintenance and Passive Fire Protection Works throughout our homes.
