Our values

About Carney

Carney Construction is a family-owned company built on a foundation of quality and a passion for excellence. Founded more than 30 years ago by John Carney, the company has grown to become a trusted name in the specialist construction industry.

Based in Reading, we are ideally situated to work in and around London while maintaining links to the rest of the South of England as well as completing some larger contracts in Wales and across the rest of England.

From the beginning, we established our expertise and industry leader status. We have received awards across all aspects of the projects we have undertaken, from our innovation and specialisms through to our care and attention for health and safety.

Above all we value the workforce we employ, continually investing in their development and training. A team of highly motivated and well-trained operatives ensure that every job we undertake is delivered to a high quality and with outstanding attention to detail. Our commitment to ongoing development and learning empowers our workforce to take a proactive and responsible approach not only to Health & Safety but also to improving standards across the site.



Carney thrives on collaboration, working with a wide network of partners across our supply chain that share our dedication to quality and innovation.
