Property damage (and cleaning up in the wake of it) can be a distressing experience, not to mention the disappointment and worry associated with an insurance settlement that is much less that you expected. Having a trusted advisor by your side to represent you on insurance matters can significantly reduce your stress and help get you back on your feet.

In the early stages of a new build, home renovation or extension, we work with homeowners to formulate a reliable and practical budget and ‘designing to a cost’. Homeowners can also benefit from an initial appraisal for an estimate of what it will cost to undertake their home renovation before they commence.
We also work closely with construction firms throughout Ireland, in carrying out estimating and tendering services. With an extensive construction technology knowledge base, we are trusted for our cost plan advice and estimating work that is vital at the early design stages of a construction project.
Whether you are looking to buy a home to live in or for investment purposes, a pre-purchase survey identifies issues inside and outside the home and the cost of rectifying them. This gives home buyers and investors insight into the true cost of their new home and the confidence to make informed decisions about their purchase. A pre-purchase inspection is a cost-effective alternative to a structural report for properties that do not require engineering expertise.
