McGoff Construction hands over world’s first Bear Grylls Adventure

Manchester-based principal contractor McGoff Construction has handed over the world’s first Bear Grylls Adventure scheme to long standing client, family entertainment giant Merlin Entertainments.

Located within Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre (NEC), The Bear Grylls Adventure is now open to the public and features a dive tank, Europe’s tallest high ropes course, skydiving experience (iFly), climbing wall, shooting range and assault course.

This £10m fit-out project is the latest scheme delivered by McGoff Construction for Merlin Entertainments following the successful completion of a number of other landmark projects notably the Castle Hotel at LEGOLAND resort, the CBeebies Hotel at Alton Towers Resort, and the Sea Life Centre at The Trafford Centre.

Group commercial director at McGoff Construction, Dave McGoff, said: “We were delighted when our valued client Merlin approached us to help deliver this landmark scheme, the first of its kind in the world and undoubtedly the most impressive project to be delivered in the UK this year.

“The project has been challenging, however the end result is absolutely fantastic and our team should be proud of what it has achieved.

“The experience and knowledge capital gained on such a project places us in a unique position to successfully deliver high profile, specialist construction projects with blue chip clients,” he added.
