Our History

Where It All Started

After Joseph McHale passes, Frank A. McKee regroups and starts his own building company, The McKee Group, which he operates in addition to the HVAC business.

1967
The First McKee Builders Project

Inspired by his growing knowledge of home construction, Frank A. McKee is inspired to construct his first building—an apartment complex in Upper Darby.

1977
The First McKee 55+ Community

McKee Builders debuts its first retirement community, the Village at Neshaminy, with 950 single-family homes. It was the first ‘resort-style’ community for seniors. McKee Builders quickly becomes known for its 55+ lifestyle communities.

1990's
The Second Generation Takes the Reins

Continuing the family commitment to integrity, quality and homeowner satisfaction, Frank J. McKee, Sr. begins expanding the concepts of 55 and older adult communities with new home styles and floor plans, expanded community features like amenity-rich clubhouses, and unique locations in DE, MD and PA.

Donations and Charity

McKee Builders believes in giving back to our community. In recent years our commitment to caring has included donations of time and dollars and the development of special fund raising events.

McKee Makes a Difference

Home of the Sparrow

The Catherine Twomey House is a 5-unit apartment home for pre-senior women with little or no income, sponsored by Home of the Sparrow. Members of the McKee Builders team donated funds, furniture for the home, and their skills to renovating this existing home, creating a shelter for vulnerable women and their children who have fallen on hard times.

Frank A. McKee Charity Golf Classic

The annual Frank A. McKee Charity Golf Classic, named in honor of our founder, invites players to swing for a worthy cause. The charity benefits different organization each year, ranging from military veterans to animal rescue.

Homes for Our Troops

Homes for Our Troops builds and donates specially adapted custom homes for severely injured veterans. In 2006, McKee Builders was honored to build a home for Pisey Tan, who lost both legs in an IED explosion.

American Warrior Initiative

American Warrior Initiative educates Americans on the challenges facing members of the military when returning from war. Among other services, AWI spearheads give-back initiatives for wounded heroes, including mortgage-free housing, business grants, home upgrades, service dogs and more. Serving the heroes who serve us is an honor for McKee Builders. We were proud to donate…

Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity seeks to build strength, stability and self-reliance in partnerships with families in need of decent and affordable housing. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers, and then pay an affordable mortgage. Over the past decade, McKee Builders has proudly supported Habitat for Humanity.

Providence Animal Center (Delaware County SPCA)

Animals deserve care too. The Providence Animal Center offers rescue, medical care, treatment, protection and placement of companion animals. The McKee family has been a proud supporter for three generations. In fact, McKee Builders Vice President Frank McKee, Jr. is a past member of the board of directors, and continues to donate his time and energy.

Toys for Tots

The U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program collects new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distributes those toys to less fortunate children in the community. Each holiday season, McKee Builders organizes and donates to toy collections across the Philadelphia area.

Honors & Awards

McKee Builders has been the recipient of more than 100 awards for excellence in design and construction. Our family takes great pride in the recognition we have received from local, regional and national building industry organizations.
