About us and our History

Kenny McKinven & Roy Colville started McKinven & Colville in early 1962 carrying out various joinery works. Based in various yards in the town centre they expanded the business to become one of the major building contractors in the Kintyre area.

In the early nineties Calum & Barry, sons of the respective partners, became involved in the day to day running of the business, becoming partners in 1994.

In 1998 the new partners set up a building arm to the existing joinery workforce to maintain high customer satisfaction with in-house controls over existing outsource works. This area of work has strengthened still the Company’s position as a major building contractor in the Kintyre area.

From 1976 till early 2002, McKinven & Colville carried out their business from Argyll St., in Campbeltown centre. In December 2001 the partners made the positive step forward of investing in new premises at Snipefield Ind Est on the outskirts of the town. These new premises meet all the strict criteria that is required in the business sector today and also creates a professional image to the strong client base, which puts the Company in a strong position for the future.

With the continuing demand for quality from clients, the partners rely upon their present experienced and highly skilled staff to train apprentices with the values that the Company has laid its foundation on over the past forty years. The Company endeavours to recruit apprentices on a bi-annual basis thus maintaining high standards. Work experience placements are offered to local potential school-leavers. This gives valuable experience of the building trade to pupils and is one route used by the Company in the recruitment of apprentices.

Over the years the Company has undertaken various projects on a Main Contracting and Sub Contracting basis with various clients including Argyll & Bute Council, Argyll & Clyde Health Board, Fyne Homes Housing Association to name but a few. With the present workforce and network of sub-contractors the Company can undertake contracts to a value of £500,000. Work undertaken ranges from minor jobbing repairs to major refurbishment, from home extensions to complete new house & commercial buildings.

Firmly based on traditional values, McKinven & Colville also incorporate the best of modern practices and innovations in materials, production and management. While computers are used to assist in the offices, it is appreciated that there is no substitute for a skilled workforce and for the personal touch in dealing with customers.

McKinven & Colville endeavours to satisfy fully, showing the Company's commitment to meeting Clients' requirements.
