What 'full service' means to your project


– You will never need to hire or manage extra trades yourself. We will do that for you.

We are on your side - our planning team will advise you on cost savings and optimise schedules to minimise disruption to you

We take full responsibility for safety, staffing, materials, timing of deliveries and housekeeping on site

Planning to avoid delay - we are able to manage staff absences due to mandatory COVID19-related isolation by replacing affected team members from our own pool of skilled and directly employed operatives

What our clients say

"We experienced excellent service from McCarrick Construction when they carried out a complicated programme of technical repairs to Marchbank School. We were obliged to source skilled craftspeople because the school is set in a Grade II listed and of architectural significance. The nature and quantity of works required the programme to span term time and holiday periods and this was a particularly challenging feat that was expertly executed.

The school staff were extremely busy so it was essential that McCarrick could be trusted entirely to get on with the job, creating as little disturbance as possible to them or their pupils. McCarricks repaired and restored the roof, chimney stacks, stained glass window and numerous areas of damaged brickwork façade. McCarrick worked with us to restore ornate terracotta balconies to their former glory, which look great. I would highly recommend their services."

T. McNee, AA Projects


McCarrick Construction went above and beyond from the start, advising on material options and the installation programme for our Daily Mile Track. They were polite and considerate at all times. The logistics around the safety of the pupils whilst the work was ongoing was at the forefront of their minds and I felt I could trust them to get on with the job whilst I focused on the daily running of the school. We are delighted with the end result.

A. Brinton, Headteacher, Red Rose Primary School


"Our experience of working with McCarrick Construction was very positive. The construction team of Contracts Manager, Quantity Surveyor and particularly the Site Manager were very supportive of the project, collaborating closely with ourselves, the community group and the local school. This ensured the successful completion of the building, the quality of the finish being highly praised."

G. Robinson,  Senior Consultant, d3associates


"In relation to James’s management of the works ... I have to commend both his effort and professionalism. His attention to detail throughout the contract period – both on site and pre commencement, was excellent. Despite some issues on site, his co-ordination with specialist kitchen equipment supplier and the nominated fire alarm contractor, enabled the works to be completed ahead of the scheduled programme, much to the satisfaction of the school.  I have to say he is a credit to your company in delivering the project in a thoroughly professional manner."

G. Wilson MCIOB, Facilities Manager (Projects) Robertson Facilities Management

We would like to thank the McCarrick Construction team in helping us deliver such a brilliant project, but more importantly, for being part of a project that supports our pursuit of saving and improving lives.
