Testimonials

Marcon could not have been more helpful or agreeable to work with.  The quality of workmanship has been high, and the standard of construction has been excellent.  I would not hesitate to award Marcon further contracts in the future and fully recommend them as a professional and amenable museum fit out contractor.”

Lydia Lee Head of Culture Project: Biggin Hill Memorial Museum

“As designers of the new visitor centre at Belfast City Hall, we were looking for a manufacturing and installation partner that would provide the high-end durable finish that as designers we had specified.  The appointment of Marcon Heritage was a key step in the successful delivery of the signature project for the city.  Marcon understood and appreciated the historic significance of the building in which the centre was to be housed and also the detail to which the designers had gone to ensure the highest quality finish for every piece across the 18-room exhibition space.

For us, it was a very rewarding experience working with Marcon who helped to realise our vision for the Belfast City Hall Visitor Exhibtion.”

Sarah Lyons MD & Creative Director, Redhead Conference & Exhibition Project: Belfast City Hall Visitor Centre

“At all stages of production and installation we found Marcon to be professional, enthusiastic and reliable.  The exhibition involved complex media and detailed installation with a very tight time frame.  Throughout the project Marcon provided an outstanding level of both service and problem-solving skills.  The quality of the finished product is exemplary, and I would be delighted to work with this team again in the future.”

Trevor Donnelly Director, NPWS Project: Killarney House and Gardens Interpretation Exhibition

“Marcon has a real ‘can-do’ attitude and offer some great ideas. On every project we have had feedback from our clients commenting on the professionalism and standard of work produced by Marcon which in turn eases our workload as their reliability has not been matched by any of our other suppliers.”
