Established as White Knight Properties Services in 2015, White Knight Ltd offers exceptional building services in the midlands and beyond as managing director Ronan Scally explains.
Specialising in new builds, complete renovations, extensions and roofing, and also providing domestic and commercial carpentry services, the company has earned an enviable reputation for quality and complete customer satisfaction. Based in Mucklagh near Tullamore in Co. Offaly, White Knight is a well-established family-run business which boasts a wealth of experience in the construction industry.
White Knight employs 10 people directly which includes six carpenters, three general labourers and an apprentice carpenter. Ronan had worked in Australia as a carpenter before returning home to set up the business with his father Brendan, who is a roofer by trade and previously ran Scally Construction from Ballinagar in Co. Offaly.
“We originally specialised in roof repairs and maintenance before branching into extensions, renovations and one-off new builds,” Ronan explains.
“While we’re predominantly involved in the domestic sector, we’ve undertaken some commercial work in care facilities and for LOETB (Laois Offaly Education and Training Board). If more opportunities to work in the commercial sector come along, we certainly won’t refuse them. But at the moment, we’re very busy with domestic work.
“We currently have 18 different projects ongoing, including a couple of new builds in the Tullamore area. The one-off builds typically range from 2,000 to 3,000 sq. ft. in size.”
He continues: “Having our own carpenters means we get a lot of high-end work. We’re a one-stop shop for all your construction needs.”
Superior workmanship, attention to detail, value-for-money and a commitment to working closely with clients to deliver total satisfaction are the hallmarks of White Knight Properties. Health & Safety is at the core of the business, and never more so than in this Covid-19 age. From concept to completion, Ronan and his team of top-class tradesmen are with you every step of the way, ensuring that your new project is designed and built to your specific needs, and that there are no hidden or extra costs involved. All of their work complies with the highest industry regulations.
Whether your next project is a renovation, extension or new build, White Knight’s one-stop shop approach will ensure that both the design and building processes are smooth, comfortable and hassle-free. The Co. Offaly contractor’s reputation for quality construction and ability to complete projects on time and within the agreed budget is borne out by the high volume of repeat business and referrals it receives from architects and satisfied customers.
Committed to making your dream home a reality, the company enjoys an excellent working relationship with sub-contractors and suppliers alike.
“We sub-contract the electrical, plumbing and groundworks to the same tried and trusted tradespeople,” Ronan continues.
“They include Liam Lynam Electrical in Rochfortbridge, Co. Westmeath, Speedy Plumbing & Heating Services in Tyrrellspass, Co. Westmeath, OCM Security in Tullamore and HPH Construction in Killurin, Co. Offaly. Groundwork is one of the most important tasks during home construction and that’s where HPH come into their own. With years of experience, a meticulous eye for detail and an unmatched ability to quantify and then produce quality, we are privileged to work alongside Mick Hayden and all the HPH team every week.
“By employing highly-skilled people, working closely with our architects and using only the very best building products from suppliers such as Brooks and Tullamore Hardware, we’re able to deliver the highest quality construction to our clients.”
The cost of building materials has sky-rocketed in recent times and this is being acutely felt in the new build sector.
“Where possible, we bulk-buy because the cost of materials is going up all the time. It’s an expensive time for anyone building a new home after the pandemic and now with the war in Ukraine. But most people are understanding of the situation and know it’s not our fault,” Ronan says.
With long-established, strong relationships with local suppliers and a solid team of reputable and skilled contractors, it’s easy to see why White Knight has become the builder of choice for many in the midlands. The company provides comprehensive, non-obligation quotes and no task is insurmountable for its team.
Trust White Knight with your home and they will treat it like their own. Ronan and Brendan would like to take this opportunity to thank their customers, suppliers, sub-contractors and architects for their continued support.
