About Franic Contruction

Our company was set-up in 1993 by Francis McGee after building a wealth of experience working in London, Germany and Belgium. The business started as a carpentry business contracting for some of Irelands leading property developers, Cosgrage, Mcinerney and Ballymoe properties.

From those beginnings we evolved our business to cover the development of Sunrooms, Extensions and One-off housing. We rapidly developed a reputation for quality and became very successful in domestic residential developments.

Our company formed Meadow Bank developments, which developed some of Meath’s most prestigious estates including Foxbrook on the Carragha road in Ratoath and more recently Lismeeh Hills in Ballyjamesduff.

Our success has always been based on delivering quality on time and on budget but don’t take our word for it here are some comments from our clients, we are happy to give out our clients contact details for you to do a reference check.

"We selected Franic Construction Ltd through a competitive tendering process to build our new home in Castleknock village and it was one of the best decisions we ever made.

We had a tight budget and project time line from green field site to a full turnkey 3000 sqf home. The project came in on time and budget. End to end our home was built within 4 months. The project specifications and finishes were very demanding, all materials had to conform to Irish Agreement Board (TAB) and National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI) requirements and be future proofed to meet EU Directives. This included insulated concrete formwork (ICF) construction, triple glazed low u value window systems, latest pluming and solar systems, with lots of open plan areas requiring substantial steel work and very high finishes including marble tiling throughout downstairs, raised architraves, ceilings and much more.

We would highly recommend Franic Construction for any building project. The service we got was extremely professional, in touch with our needs, friendly, informative and value adding with design improvements and competitive procurement of materials. We could go on and on. They worked relentlessly everyday through the coldest winter on record. We had the benefit of living 100 meters away from the site and we could see the great work ethic and efforts made daily. Neighbours frequently commented how hard they worked and how professional, tidy and considerate they were in completing the project.

We are in the house since March and have not had any Issues with any part of the construction. Some of my professional TAB and NSAI colleagues have inspected the workmanship and found it to be top class.

Francie McGee from Franic Construction still frequently calls to see if everything is ok. What service! We can't say enough about the professionalism, innovation and customer focus of Franic Construction and would go as far to say that you are making a mistake by not selecting them for your project.

“We engaged the services of Franic Construction to carry out an extension at the rear of our house in 2009. The project was started and completed within the time frame promised, within budget, and with the minimum disruption.

The quality of workmanship was excellent and we were extremely satisfied with the outcome. We have no hesitation in recommending Franic Construction and would be happy to offer a reference upon request.”

No one enjoys having the builders in, but Franci McGee and his team made our project as painless as it could be. Needless to say the project was completed on time (in fact about a week early) and within budget.

But, it was the efficiency and friendliness of the team that really made the difference. Any problems were communicated promptly and with a couple of solutions every time that made the inevitable challenges of building work seem relatively easy. The team cleared up the site meticulously every day and we are delighted with the end result. Franic Construction takes pride in what they do and really add value to the planning work that we put in with the architect at the beginning of our project.

They made sure that our original vision was brought to life even when the reality of building something from a drawing is a lot more difficult in real life. We wholeheartedly recommend Franci and the Franic team to anybody considering a building project and needing to retain their sanity at the end of it.

They say it’s the small touches that counts and whether it was re-seeding the grass verge when they lifted the skip or driving to Cork to find exactly the right Brick to match our Existing wall, Franic Construction exceeded our expectations at every step of the way during our recent build

From the time Francis, John and their team arrived on site they showed a level of courtesy and professionalism that is not often seen in the building industry and did so while insuring that our project come in on time and on budget.

Having waited 3 years for planning permission we had high expectations for our extension and Franic Construction exceeded them all. We cannot recommend them highly enough.
