Due to considerable growth and expansion within both McNeill Contractors Ltd and Candela BSE Ltd, and progression within the property investment marketplace prompting the recent creation and inclusion of McNeill Holdings Ltd, we have taken the decision to collectively refer to these select three companies as part of the McNeill Group. As a result, it helps us solidify and bring together values, aims, and visions that can be reflected and adhered to between each individual company across the group.
Operationally, internal departments such as IT, Business Development, Marketing, Human Resources, and the like, are shared, allowing continuity, transparency, and efficiency in relation to policies, strategies, and procedures. This seamlessness encourages structure, whereby focus can be targeted towards further development and achievement of group, and indeed individual company, targets and goals.
McNeill Contractors Ltd
McNeill Contractors Ltd is the longest-running member of the McNeill Group, having been founded in 2011 by current Managing Director, Jason McNeill. MCL is the primary design and build construction contractor arm of the group, specialising in residential, commercial, and industrial construction, alongside property investment conversions relating to, but not limited to, house to flat conversions, HMOs, commercial to residential, serviced accommodation/holiday lets, and mixed-use properties. MCL also offers property investors joint venture opportunities, with the help of McNeill Holdings.
MCL currently has 6 members of staff office-based and 5 site-based staff, not including a range of labourers skilled in a variety of different fields. Each site supervisor and trade foreman has achieved or is working towards their CIOB level 3 diploma in site supervisory studies, their SSSTS course qualification, and their CSCS supervisor gold card, alongside each site labour team member who has achieved or is working towards NVQ level 3 in their particular trade and their advanced craft CSCS card, amongst other construction-related skills. Additionally, MCL has positive relationships with multiple architects, structural engineers, and interior designers, that help ensure the design and build projects run smoothly and professionally.
As the construction industry is extremely busy and competitive, MCL has worked tirelessly to differentiate itself and has introduced unique processes in order to provide a better service and client experience. This process runs from the very beginning of any client-project opportunity, right through to practical completion. To help clients understand their initial proposal and quote, MCL creates a full, itemised Bill of Quantities using industry-standard software. This has already proven significant in securing both low-end and top-end projects and prevents unnecessary variation and change order bills later in the project. Furthermore, with the use of online and app-based project management software Buildertrend, both MCL and the client are able to communicate 24/7, view project schedule and cost status, upload documents and pictures, and assign tasks, to help the project move along without interruption.
Candela BSE Ltd
Candela was founded in 2016 and is the building services engineering expert within the McNeill Group, and official partner of Loxone.

McNeill Holdings Ltd
The newest member of the McNeill Group comprises McNeill Holdings, the property investment and joint venture arm of the group. After delving into the property market with McNeill Portman, knowledge and experience were gained which enabled the birth and ambitions of McNeill Holdings.
Already with multiple successful joint venture companies and a growing portfolio, McNeill Holdings is able to manage and carry out the investment process from initial deal sourcing, right through to appraisal, offer, conveyancing, build (with help from MCL), exit, refinancing, and staging.
