MC Construction delivered this project on time and within budget. The works were completed to a very high standard and any issues that arose throughout the project were dealt with swiftly and professionally. There were a number of different elements to the project including extensive M&E remodelling and the co-ordination of this along with the building works was excellent which was essential to ensure the project was completed on time. All in all a job well done.
