We are a family owned business based in Clinton in the South Otago area, which is an ideal position to offer our services to the South Otago, Otago, and Southland regions.

K D McKee Contracting Ltd is owned by Kent McKee who grew up around machinery and has been involved in operating gear since the age of 12. He has plenty of experience in all aspects of contracting working for L W McKee, Arnott Drainage, A G Hoffman, & Rout Brothers. In 1997 whilst working for A G Hoffman he won the National Excavator Operator, he was runner up in 1998. He then judged the competition for 2 years. In October 1999 he moved back to Clinton and worked for G H Johnston until 2001 when he established his contracting business with his wife.

K D McKee Contracting Ltd has been sub contracted to South Roads & Fulton Hogan at times to assist with underpasses and bridge replacements.
