McGurran Construction Systems and Business Development Manager, Aine Burns, said:

“A couple of years ago McGurran Construction got into the housing association market and from there we have developed our portfolio to include schemes for many of the leading associations in Northern Ireland. We have successfully built and completed a number of social houses and apartments to Sustainable Code Level 4 and to see the developments completed is very satisfying.

Aine Burns added:

“McGurran Construction provides good quality homes to areas of Ireland that really need them. When we hand over our units we liaise with tenants so that they are aware of all the important features of their new homes and it makes it all very worthwhile.

“We also liaise with community leaders and take part in charity events to contribute to the local community. We work towards the Considerate Constructors Scheme and we continue to work towards raising the profile of construction work across Northern Ireland.”
