Our History

John Paul Construction was  founded in 1949 by John Paul and Tommy Simington and expanded over the following years to become a nationally recognised contractor with a portfolio of major projects across all sectors of the industry.

In 2001 the Company underwent a management buy-out by its four directors, re-energising and re-positioning it to grow and diversify over the subsequent years.

Having concentrated exclusively on the Irish market until 2010, the Company has since built up successful operations in the UK and also in Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Abu Dhabi through our Riyadh headquartered sister company Absal Paul.
