About GDC

A Family Business

George Doherty started in the construction industry in the early 1970's and later went on to form GDC Limited (George Doherty Construction Limited). The company's activities for the next 30 years were mainly subcontracting throughout Ireland and the UK as well as the construction of distinctive high quality homes in Northern and Southern Ireland.

Having grown substantially over the years, GDC is now recognised as one of the leading construction companies in the North-West and continues to enjoy a high level of repeat business from a diverse client base. Our impressive track record includes an exceptional portfolio of contracts in Ireland, North and South, which include numerous public and private housing developments. We have been involved in prestigious contracts in Derry, Belfast, Donegal, Dublin, London and a few other major towns and cities throughout Ireland and the UK. Our current projects include Droim Ard Avenue and Rann Mor in Letterkenny, Cara Bay and Marquee Square in Culdaff and Cherry Avenue in Carndonagh.


The honed skills of our workers developed over generations are to be found in all our homes. We have great pride in our craftsmanship which has been passed down from generation to generation in all disciplines and which are notable features in all our developments. Our workforce is also innovative, responsive and perceptive in the quality of service provided to our customers and GDC continues to be enterprising and dynamic in its quest to provide consistently high quality service.

Client Service

The GDC success is mostly due to the pride, professionalism and skills of our workforce. Due to a review of our procedures we have identified the need to, and importance of, ensuring that all customers and suppliers are dealt with in an efficient and professional manner. We have also developed a new campaign called “Avoid a Housing Headache” to higher awareness of our unrivalled commitment to both estate completions and good estate management and maintenance for you our customer for years to come.

The Future

As we all know, times have been very challenging recently. Like many professionals in the construction industry, we have felt the pinch, but we have continued to make progress with steady sales figures over the last 24 months. We put our success in sales down to our reputation for quality and customer service and our strength in the whole area of high quality estate completion and continued estate management and maintenance – (as highlighted in our “Avoid a Housing Headache” campaign) – thus ensuring that all our clients continue to enjoy living in a pleasant, healthy and thriving environment when they buy a GDC home. Due to our continued sales and in particular the recent “sell out” at our Rann Mor Walk development, we intend to launch the next phase of development at this very popular development in the spring or early summer 2012.

If you intend to buy a property then we urge you to take a look at our previous developments (which speak for themselves) and also download our “Avoid a Housing Headache” checklist before making any decision, then give us a call for a first hand experience or our service.
