Edinburgh Builders, Mackenzie Hughes Creating Homes of Distinction

Edinburgh builders have, over the centuries, laid the foundations for the highest standards of skill and craftsmanship. The sweeping grandeur of Edinburgh’s New Town stands today as a testament to the passion, skill and sheer dedication it took to breathe life into the drawings of renowned architects of the day such as Robert Adam and William Henry Playfair. Established in 1994 Edinburgh builder, Mackenzie Hughes, carries on this tradition of excellence by sympathetically converting, restoring and renovating Edinburgh homes to their original beauty and, if required, enhancing them with bespoke extensions thus creating some much-needed extra living or working space.

Your Building Project is our Passion

With our own dedicated team of building craftsmen at Mackenzie Hughes we’re passionate about what we do. Every piece of wood is lovingly finished; every light fitting chosen to complement a room in the best way possible because, like you, we live and breathe your project from start to finish to ensure that you get exactly what you contract us to do.  At Mackenzie Hughes we will;

  • Meet with you, find out more about your needs and then guide you through our building process.
  • Choose the most suitable architect with the right experience for your building project. We will liaise with them along with other third parties such as council officials, engineers, bathroom and kitchen companies to ensure the high standards we’re both looking for are met at all times.

If you so wish we will take full responsibility for managing the entire project which will allow you to attend to your daily life free from disruption.

‘My Edinburgh residence is a regency property designed and built by William Playfair in 1826. When I first bought it I was led to believe that structurally, it was in good condition. However, when I started redecorating I discovered that there were some pretty big problems behind the scenes including wet and dry rot which would mean the replacement of a number of original wooden beams and the full refurbishment of the property to restore it to its original grandeur.

I commissioned Mackenzie Hughes to carry out the necessary work as I’m aware that the company has an excellent reputation; that Rory has an eye for detail and is always keen to get things just right. Everything is going to plan so far and I’m looking forward to seeing the finished article.’

I moved into a well-established, large stone-built villa and was looking for more space. Planning permission was already in place which allowed me to remove the existing conservatory, knock down the outside kitchen wall and build an extension thereby creating one large kitchen/dining room. When it came to selecting a builder I searched online and found the Mackenzie Hughes website. Rory took care of everything from that point on.

He always turned up when he said he would, liaised with the architect and suggested some amendments to the original drawings. Rory always went the extra mile to ensure that the job was completed to the highest standard and I’m delighted with the finished result. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mackenzie Hughes to anyone looking for a builder.

Mackenzie Hughes set a quality standard far higher than we had previously experienced. Their care and attention to detail was evident right from the start of the project. Nothing was too much trouble for them. It was a pleasure to have Mackenzie Hughes working on our property.
