Our History.

Keely Construction is a family run construction company which has been involved in the construction industry in and around Oxford since 1939. It began when Peter Patrick Keely started trading in Oxford as a painter and decorator after emigrating from Ireland. Patrick had three sons and a daughter with Winifred. All the children were encouraged to learn a trade after they left school. In time P.P. Keely became P.P.Keely and Sons. After Patrick's death two of his sons (Peter and Christopher) continued the family business, changing the name to Keely Bros. Soon after this they were able to employ their brother (Barry, who still works for Keely Construction today). Both Peter and Chris have retired from Keely Construction and the management continues with a third generation of the Keely family - Mark Keely, Peter's son and Peter Patrick's grandson. Since our humble beginnings we have gradually grown from a painting and decorating company to be able to offer "the complete construction service".  A company that is commited to offering the highest standards of design, workmanship and materials.
