M-AR and TDSG team up to ‘strengthen the supply chain’

Modular firm M-AR teams up with TDSG to 'strengthen the supply chain'

Hull-based modular construction firm M-AR has entered into a partnership with one of its key specialist suppliers – structural engineering and steel detailing services provider TDSG.

TDSG has worked with M-AR for several years across multiple large-scale projects, and is an expert in 3D design.

The partners will now work together on the national project pipeline, rather than as two separate entities.

It comes after M-AR more than tripled turnover in 2020/21, growing sales from £6.2m to £20.1m.

Ryan Geldard, operations director at M-AR said: “We pride ourselves on building relationships and that includes our supply chain partners as well as clients.

“And in the current challenging climate where reliable service supply cannot be taken for granted, our partnership with TDSG has been vital and we’ve definitely seen the value of working with the team as a consultant as well as a pure service supplier, allowing us to navigate any issues before they arise.

“Working with TDSG is a natural fit for us as we have the same ethos – both being unafraid to challenge industry norms and drive innovation.

“I’m proud of our open and collaborative culture at M-AR and I think our partnership with TDSG is testament to this in action.”

The new partners describe the sharing of information as mutually beneficial. M-AR can offer advance notice of its requirements for pipeline projects and TDSG in turn can flag up any potential issues before they arise, allowing time to resolve them or for an alternative solution to be found before a build programme gets underway.

Primarily operating in the housing and education sectors, M-AR is currently delivering several high-profile schemes, including the first ever purpose-built accommodation building for national homeless charity Centrepoint, three affordable housing developments for Bromley Council and a large school extension for a secondary school in Newham.

The team at TDSG is now on hand to advise and evaluate, via pre and post project reviews – acting as a trusted resource for M-AR to continually improve and innovate.

Daniel Leech, chief executive at TDSG, said: “The construction industry is a tough place to operate. After 30 years of business at TDSG, Ryan and his team at M-AR have shown us the value in having a client that values what we bring to the table, treats us as an equal and really pushes his team to adopt the type of culture that allows us to thrive rather than survive.

“We share a dedication to investing into the digital asset and the front end, early engagement, and having as many stakeholders as possible contribute to ensuring that with the right information and data, the building of the physical asset can be lean, accurate and efficient.”
