In 1986/87 the company took its first step into the world of mainstream contracting. Local contracts followed a successful spell in private development.

In 1993 the company became a Partnership, P&K McKaigue Building Contractors, the K standing for Pat’s wife Kathleen.

In 1996 the company took a monumental step in purchasing a local Hardware/Building suppliers, Noone’s of Maghera. This has given the company an edge in sourcing and purchasing materials.

On the 5th April 2002 P&K McKaigue Building Contractors became a Limited company.

In 2016 P&K purchased commercial land off the Glen Road at the bottom of the busy arterial route, the Glenshane Pass and constructed new purpose built offices to become a base of operations.

On January 4th 2018, P&K took the historic step of moving into their new state of the art offices including an expansive storage yard. These act as a physical statement of intent and ambition for the company.
