MAC Construction Consultants furthers growth ambitions with new Associate Director

Leading Sheffield-based construction consultancy MAC has appointed Jonathan Nellar as an Associate Director.

Bringing more than 40 years’ experience as a Chartered Building Surveyor to the role, he joins the firm’s growing Building Consultancy team – delivering commercial support and building surveying services on projects throughout the planning, development, construction and post-construction phases.

His wealth of expertise includes Contract Administration and Building Works Management, Project Management, Planned Maintenance, Building Surveys and Defect Inspections.

Joining from Pennington Choices (formerly Auburn Ainsley) where he was a Senior Project Manager, Jonathan previously spent a decade as the Director of Building Consultancy at Lambert Smith Hampton, and prior to that, 12 years as a Director of AHR Building Consultancy.

He is also a qualified Principal Designer under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015.

His appointment follows a strong year of growth for MAC Construction Consultants, which continued to secure major private and public sector contracts throughout the pandemic, and which recently announced the launch of its dedicated national External Wall Systems team in response to the cladding crisis.

The team is now providing much needed relief in resolving fire risk issues for a wide range of building owners.

Welcoming him to the team Director of Building Consultancy within MAC’s Sheffield office, Barry Smith, said: “There is much emphasis now on the role that the building industry will play in the recovery of the economy following the Covid crisis, and in helping to ‘level up’ infrastructure across the country.

“You only have to look out of our offices in Sheffield, Leeds and Manchester to see how much residential and commercial building work is underway, and we are pleased to be playing a pivotal role in many of those projects, and others across the country.

“In order to ensure that we can keep up with growing demand from both new and exciting clients and partners we are delighted to be welcoming Jonathan to MAC.

“His wealth of experience and his expertise will further complement that of the existing team and is further indicative of the quality of personnel we have here within the Building Consultancy department.” 

Commenting on his new role Jonathan said: “I’m excited to be joining MAC to be able to continue to provide high quality professional services and to bring my wealth of experience to assist in the delivery of a wide range of projects.

“MAC has established itself as a true market leader in the delivery of major public and private sector developments over the past few years. The team has also demonstrated a real dedication and commitment to acting in the best interest of their clients over the years, and that is an ethos that really resonates with me.”

MAC is a leading construction consultancy which operates out of a number of strategically placed offices, including Birmingham, Manchester, Milton Keynes, Leeds and London. Its Cost Management, Building Consultancy, and Safety, Health and Environment teams work across a wide range of industries including education, public sector and retail.
