In 1972 McCombie Builders Limited was founded by Bruce McCombie, after serving his apprenticeship with a local Banchory Building company he decided to take the leap and start his own business. Through hard work, determination and the support of his wife Margaret, Bruce built up the company into the successfully family run business it is today with Bruce’s two sons Bruce Jnr and Scott running the business alongside him. With a history of working on both commercial and domestic projects McCombie Builders prides itself on customer satisfaction and have built their reputation on recommendations from local architects, companies and customers alike. Providing first class service and advice whether your project is a small renovation or big build project.
OUR AWARD WINNING HISTORY
We are proud holders of the prestigious UK Master Builder of the Year Award 2002 in the category of Best Small House Builder. A national award which is nominated by builders’ clients in recognition of the quality of their work and customer service, McCombie Builders had Mr and Mrs Salter of Glassel to thank for their nomination after building their dream home. The Salter’s large granite butterfly design house (named Kingdom) was one of McCombie’s largest and most ambitious projects, taking the team nearly a year to build the four bedroomed house.
Mrs Salter said : “I nominated Bruce of McCombie Builders for the award, his advice was invaluable as was his experience. He runs a family firm and I think you get extra attention that way. They were on site for nearly a year and I was on site every day (except while I was on holiday) and we never said a cross word. That says a lot about his professionalism, experience and expertise. I couldn’t recommend him highly enough.”
However the award was not given purely for the house at Glassel, Mrs Salter made point to mention that McCcombie Builders are well known in the area for the many projects we have carried out, taking on anything from drain clearing to conversions, extensions and building a new house.
At McCombie Builders our family’s roots are strongly in Kincardshire and we strive to support the local community and surrounding areas as much as possible. Back in 1992 were delighted to be chosen as the main contractor for the refurbishment of the Scolty Tower Monument which encourages thousands of visitors to the area each year, and had the pleasure of meeting HRH The Prince of Wales at the opening.
Some of our most recent projects which we are proud to be involved with are:
SCOUT JUMBLE COLLECTION
BANCHORY BOYS FOOTBALL CLUB SPONSORSHIPS
LIONS DEN MARTIAL ARTS ACADEMY
CHRISTMAS TREE COLLECTION
Scolty Tower Monument
Banchory Lockdown Stones
Banchory Christmas Lights
