What our clients say

"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."
