Mace, which includes FM consultancy Operate (formerly Macro), has launched its 2026 Business Strategy – “a radical vision of a more sustainable, more inclusive and more innovative built environment”.
Responding to the global climate emergency and the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, the global group said it has overhauled its strategy to set out a more sustainable and inclusive business model.
The group aims to drive a 20 per cent growth in margin each year, target £3 billion in annual revenue and has the ambition to employ more than 8,000 people by 2026 across four ‘Engines for Growth: Develop, Construct, Consult and Operate’.
Mace said it would achieve this by selecting a diverse range of markets and sectors to deliver global growth across its four ‘engines’, including housing, pharmaceuticals, infrastructure and the data centre market.
It added that services to clients would “evolve to focus on creating a fundamental transformation in how the built environment is delivered and operated; reducing carbon, driving the adoption of a digital-first, ‘construction to production’ approach; and prioritising the creation of social value”.
Mark Reynolds, Mace’s group CEO, said: “The last 12 months have shown that companies in all sectors must urgently change how we do business, and our new strategy responds to two of the great challenges of our time: addressing climate change and creating a more diverse and inclusive global society.
“By putting purpose at the heart of our strategy, our vision is that by 2026 Mace will be leading the way across the globe in disrupting how the built environment is developed, built and operated – from creating new models for town centre regeneration and housing delivery driven by social value to working with our clients to radically transform how we construct buildings and infrastructure.”
