"Mr. McConkey's experience and knowledge was critical in obtaining the town and state septic system permits I needed to proceed with the sale of my property in Freedom, NH. His design of a new septic system for my small lot considered all town and state regulations, possible variances thereof, on site testing, addressing neighbor concerns, and included representing me at town board hearings. He produced professional work in the short time available and I'm happy to recommend him."
"We are in the process of having our septic system replaced and Mr Mark McConkey is our agent as Septic System Designer. He has been professional and timely in updating us on the requirements of the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services for subsurface sites. In addition to designing the system, he also coordinated the process of having it presented to the NHDES for acceptance for our site. He made the process go smoothly and easy for us. We are completely satisfied with the outcome and acceptance of his design by the NHDES. Thank you for all your good work for us."
"We were selling our house and had a closing date that we had to meet. During the buyers inspection it was discovered that our septic system was in failure. We were referred by our realtor to Mark McConkey. We informed Mark of our situation and the time frame that we were under in order to sell our house. He came to our house right away, decided what was needed and got right on it. Unfortunately, during his surveying process, Mark was attacked by a swarm of bees. He had a reaction from the stings and ended up in the hospital. Through all of this he still made sure our deadline was met. Mark and his crew did an excellent job. We could not thank him enough for all that he did for us."
"Recently we moved our mobile home onto a private piece of land. We hired McConkey Construction as our General Contractor to handle a lot of the site work. Because we are from out of State, we needed a company we could trust in getting the work done correctly. The Company’s knowledge and professional crew solved problems that arise. The Company provided the test pit, septic design and installation, driveway excavation and cement slab. The crew worked well with other contractors on the job. We were very pleased with McConkey Construction Company and appreciate all the work the crew put into our project. This company went above and beyond to get this done for us. Thanks again for all your hard work."
"I Contacted Mark McConkey to quote me a price on a septic system installation. After reviewing the design plan, Mark found an error in the layout and had it corrected at no additional cost. His workmanship was professional, fairly priced and completed on the agreed time.
I would highly recommend Mr. McConkey for any septic related project."
"Mark provided expert service for me the next day from talking with him and completed a detailed report which explained my septic system. Beyond this job, I've known Mark for over ten years, and have always known him to have the highest ability and integrity in his work. I recommend anyone needing septic work performed to hire Mark."
"When I decided to place my lakefront home up for sale at the end of May this year, my local realtor suggested that I expand my septic system. While the reasoning for this made sense, I dreaded the idea of a major project and the accompanying headaches that would involve. Fortunately, my agent strongly recommended McConkey Construction for the job, and I heeded his advice.
Mark McConkey designed and installed the new system, and I cannot overstate how pleased I was with the work.
Mark quickly and efficiently secured the necessary permits for the proposed plan, provided me with a clear and precise estimate, and began work on time as promised.
His crew was outstanding; a friendly and courteous group of guys with great attitudes and work ethic despite the oppressive heat and blackflies. A refreshing change from past experiences. While excavating the site, they took special pains not to disturb my extensive landscaping without my having to ask. And, upon my request, they even delayed reseeding the sod until I would be back from a business trip and able to water properly.
In short, the septic design and installation went seamlessly, the entire McConkey team was a pleasant bunch to have around, everything passed inspection, the project stayed on budget, and the house sold the first week on the market. There was absolutely no reason for my initial misgivings about undertaking the expansion of my septic system. I feel fortunate to have known to hire McConkey Construction for the project.
We are writing to send our deep and sincere appreciation to McConkey Construction, Mark McConkey, for all of your work on our new septic system. We cannot imagine finding another professional who was so thorough, communicative, helpful, and a pleasure to deal with.
We had a failed septic on our waterfront property in May 2021. We looked at a number of designers but McConkey was clearly the best choice. The price was very fair and the knowledge of the area, our specific condition and a promise of a quick design time frame made our decision easy. McConkey came through as promised with a design in the time frame promised and obtained State Approval and Permit within days after the design was completed. This was months ahead of when others thought they could finish.
Due to our scheduling constraints and prior commitments we made we did not hire McConkey to do the install. This proved to be a mistake as the installer had a number of issues with his workload and was challenged by our difficult site. Due to a number of circumstances and unforeseen subsurface conditions the installation took much longer than promised and the system was not installed per the plans. We became very frustrated and quite desperate as we were now months without a working septic. Mark came through and was able to accurately document the conditions, gave us professional expert advice and worked closely with us and the State to solve the issues and get the system installation completed and approved by the State. Mark was always professional, was quick to return calls, gave us needed help and guided us through the State permitting needs, rules and requirements. It was also clear to us how much respect the State has for Mark and his company.
We now have a new working, fully permitted waterfront septic thanks to Mark and McConkey Construction. We would highly recommend Mark and his company to anyone that needs septic design and installation.
"Thank you guys so much for completing my septic design in such a quick professional manner. You probably saved my construction loan. I really appreciate you making it happen so fast I know everyone is busy right now. Thanks again!"
