About Us

The story of Sandar Construction is the evolution of a true family business. Founder Jimmie Jackson, took up a trade in carpentry upon leaving school, and as he expanded his construction skills he steadily moved up the ladder of responsibility to foreman and then on to contracts manager of a major construction company and was involved in overseeing many large builds and projects around Ireland. Jimmie stayed in that role for 27 years, building up a huge wealth of knowledge and experience along the way.

The opportunity then arose for Jimmie to set up his own construction business in 1999, and he has never looked back since. With the formation of Sandar Construction, it soon became apparent that Jimmie’s project management skills would be very much in demand, so it made sense to bring the rest of his family on board full time, as they too shared Jimmie’s passion for all things construction.

With Bernie overseeing the administration side of the business, and sons Jonathon and Leigh becoming directors of the company, the business has continued to build upon their reputation of a name that’s synonymous with quality workmanship.

Over the years, the skills and management base of the company has evolved and developed. There is a strong belief that management is about getting the right people matched up to particular tasks, ensuring good project communications across the whole team, whilst creating a safe and more productive work environment for everyone.

Today, Sandar Construction now boasts a highly professional and motivated construction team which is comparable to the very best in the country.

This is a management team and workforce that is dedicated to working together to achieve the very highest standards of quality.
