In 2011 we applied for tenders to build our new farm shop and 100 cover restaurant. After receiving numerous tenders from all other Northern Ireland we selected the tender from David McKee. Appointing McKee’s for this work must be the best decision we made with this project.
David and his son William are exceptional people. They recognised the need for careful time management of building works and approach tasks with a positive and helpful attitude. They understood that the building site was quite often an area which we required to show customers and suppliers around at any time, and they repeatedly surpassed expectations of their involvement in order to ensure that all areas were kept to a very high standard both adhering to H & S and that all areas were keep exceptionally clean and tidy.
They brought with them a team of highly professional tradesmen, all of whom carried out their jobs to a high standard. They were always prepared in advance, very forward thinking, often leaving the building site late, travelling home and returning early in the morning with a van load of materials ready for the next few days. Their tireless work ethic was instrumental in getting the build completed on schedule. Despite travelling 120 mile round trip every day, he and his tradesmen were all on site before 8am every day, and often at 7am. They never missed a day, and only took Christmas Day and Boxing Day off, in order to achieve our deadline. They braved extremely cold and excessively windy weather but never stopped.
They kept to our budget and saved us money at every possible turn yet no shortcuts were taken. They always had our best interest at heart. The craftsmanship is clearly to the highest standard.
David and William were extremely approachable. No matter what areas we needed changed or advised on, they always made time for us.
They started on 7th November 2011, and contracted to have the work completed for opening on 19th March, which only gave approx 20 weeks from start to finish. This seemed to us, unachievable, but they did not fail, we opened on 19th March with everything completed. David and William made this build very stress free for us. They never brought us problems, only solutions.
We could not praise their work or their tradesmen’s work enough. They are an EXCEPTIONAL team. We were actually very sad to see them leave, as we became close friends during this build.
Many of our customers have asked us for the name and telephone number of our contractor, as it is finished to a very high standard, and nothing has been compromised. We would be delighted to show this new build to any persons interested in contracting McKee’s.
