About Us

Before MCKIT Engineering Ltd. even existed as it is nowadays, the team was already managing the design and construction of 700 fully efficient low income houses on behalf of the Government of Belize, as well as the construction of the National Sport Complex with a capacity of 4,000 seats. By 1998 the team engineers were the project managers for the construction of the new departure terminal, the extension of the arrival terminal, the apron and the parallel taxi way of the PSW Goldson International Airport at Belize.

 

After fulfilling in record time and exceptional quality the project in Belize, the team was subcontracted by Kuwaiti Construction Company, Al-Kharafi and Sons in a joint venture, to build the new parallel taxiway at the V.C. Bird International Airport in Antigua and Barbuda.

 

Finally, already as MCKIT Engineering Ltd our team was responsible for the construction of Sugar Ridge’s commercial and residential areas, including its entire infrastructure and the installation of all of its services. In addition, on behalf of the Government of Antigua and Barbuda we were contacted to build 79 Middle Income houses.

 

The company has developed the architectural and structural designed of the Football Development Complex in Montserrat, on behalf of the Montserrat Football Association Inc., and a variety of private project in different Caribbean Island as Guadalupe and Anguilla.

 

Recently we’ve being working with the Colombian cement company, Argos, in their distribution plant in Antigua: we have sandblasted their silos, painted them, constructed and assembled a new dust machine including its foundation, and we have made a great number of repairs all around the plant in all hours and scenarios. Not only do we have skilled welders and knowledgeable engineers that are capable of tackling a wide range of work but we are responsible, reliable, and if there is an emergency we would work at the time necessary to meet our client’s need.

 

Beside general contractors, we have also an association with steel structure suppliers, where we design the steel structure to meet the requirements and produce it upon the necessities of the project –this being bridges, warehouses, houses and up to eight story buildings which can take the form of hotels and/or condominium.
