We've been officially unveiled as an approved partner of the Association for Public Service Excellence

We are celebrating the news that we have been officially named as an approved partner of the Association for Public Service Excellence (APSE).

Working on a not-for-profit basis and owned by its members, APSE is dedicated to promoting excellence in the delivery of frontline services to local communities around the UK. Through the extensive APSE network, more than 250 local authorities and organisations are able to share information and expertise and ask for advice and innovative solutions in order to develop new, viable ways forward in a collaborative partnership.

Becoming an approved partner opens a number of doors. It provides the company with a voice through which it can share its expertise with local authorities and fellow members as well as the chance to gather valuable insights on the subjects of civil and electrical engineering and infrastructure.

With over 50 years’ experience delivering major contracts across the UK, we bring a wealth of experience and industry knowledge to the table for fellow members - with notable recent projects including street-lighting and re-cabling works for the Royal Parks and at Constitution Hill and a £25m street lighting contract for The Borough Council of Calderdale - Yorkshire.

APSE Chief Executive Paul O’Brien is delighted to welcome us on board and he is looking forward to a fruitful partnership in the future with McCann - “Local authorities are always looking to discover trustworthy organisations implementing the latest innovations and best working practices which they can look to work in partnership with on major projects - so having McCann on board can only benefit our membership base and offer significant value for everyone connected to APSE.”.

MD John McCann, is delighted to see the company officially confirmed as an APSE approved partner and is keen to develop relationships with local authorities and fellow partners for the benefit of everyone involved - “Sharing ideas and expertise is what APSE is all about,” said John.
“We feel we have a lot to offer fellow members but we are also keen to hear their thoughts and learn from a far-reaching network of industry professionals.” added John.
