Local Family Firm Dixons Contractors Builds on National Success

1 Mins read

Leading Co. Antrim based family construction company, Dixons Contractors, has built upon its national expertise following the completion of a multi-million pound Academy of Sports and Wellbeing at Perth College UHI in Scotland.

Founded in 1979 as a small family-owned business, the company has gone from strength to strength with the recent Scottish project affirming its reputation in providing first-class facilities and projects across the UK.

The £7 million structure, completed in partnership with Scotland-based design and architecture firm, Keppie Design and sports hall construction specialists Ball Hall, was delivered in time for the 2016/2017 academic year, substantially benefitting students, staff and the local Perth and Kinross community.

The education project contributes to Dixons’ on-going national work, alongside recent local projects including an extension of the La Mon hotel, Belfast, construction of new corporate facilitates at Down Royal, with the firm currently building a new sports academy for Rainey Endowed, Magherafelt.

With more design, construction and refurbishment projects in Northern Ireland and across the UK year-on-year, the company has seen turnover increase significantly and its success continues to positively impact the local area and economy.

Managing Director, Declan McKendry, commented, “We are delighted to deliver our expertise and quality services initially in the Co. Antrim area, to projects across Northern Ireland and the UK. This design and build project was a tremendous development to be part of and we delivered a modern facility designed to be fully inclusive and accessible. The progress Dixons has made over the past 40 years has been incredible and we look forward to future projects both in Northern Ireland and across the UK.”

Dixons has a strong reputation for delivering high quality projects across the commercial, public and private sectors in Northern Ireland and Great Britain, including education, industrial, sports, leisure, health public sector, local authority and residential.
