History

Antrim Construction Company Limited, often referred to as ACC Limited, is the principal company within the Ladyhill Holdings Group.  The company was first registered in 1967 and today is one of the largest private residential property developers in Northern Ireland.  The Ladyhill Holdings Group also includes Boville McMullan Limited - a quarry and specialist aggregate company and Prospect Private Nursing Home. 

A privately owned family business, Antrim Construction Company Limited has witnessed rapid growth from its inception more than 4 decades ago.  The company now hands over in excess of 200 new homes per year, solely in the private residential property market.  Antrim Construction Company Limitedís original head office was located beside the groupís quarry business at Ladyhill, a scenic wooded area between Antrim and Ballymena.  The company now resides in an impressive new office block in Holywood, Co. Down - Ladyhill House, named after its original head office location.  This move followed the acquisition in 1994 of the Holywood based John Mowlem Homes Northern Ireland Division.  Initially John Mowlem Homes N.I., better known locally as Unit Construction, continued to trade as Down Construction Company until the year 2000 when it fully merged into Antrim Construction Company Limited.  Virtually doubling in size over night, the company decided to build a single office block to encompass the entire organisation and choose Holywood as its new home.

Antrim Construction Company Limitedís core business remains new private residential development although it does have a commercial building department.  The company also had a successful agricultural and industrial building division completing major contracts throughout Northern Ireland. Today Antrim Construction Company Limited normally manages on average, six major housing developments at any given time.  These quality initiative developments offer prospective home buyers a full range of house types, sizes and designs.  The company is registered with the National House Building Council and is naturally proud of its own Site Managers who are regular winners of the coveted NHBC Pride in the Job Quality Awards.
