Client Reviews, Testimonials

Pre-Purchase Survey, Carrigaline, Co. Cork
"Sorry so long getting back to you I was busy. Your survey was excellent more detailed than I expected and have asked for 1900 euro off the agreed price for the work needed. I have already recommended you to other people who will be buying houses in the future."

Engineers Report, East Cork
"I just rang to thank you for the extensive report. The report hasn't changed our mind about buying the house and we're still enthusiastic to start. The report was a great help in getting an idea about the costs of the renovation. We've taken the boundary issue to our solicitor and they're looking into that now. Again, many thanks and I'm sure we'll keep you in mind when we need an engineer."

House Survey of rural bungalow, Midleton, Co. Cork
"Thanks for sending your reports so quickly. We are very happy with all the observations and indications included which we know will help us a lot in making the best decisions regarding the site. We will certainly contact you again in future in case we need to get a more specific and detailed inspection or if we need anything you might be able to help us with."

Engineers House Survey, Carrigtwohill, Co. Cork
"Thank you again for today and fitting me in so fast."

Structural Survey of rural farmhouse, West Cork
"Thank you so much for being so quick at sending this onto us. We really appreciated your help with this house and I am sure we will be in touch again. Take care."

Pre-Purchase Survey of new terraced dwelling, Silversprings, Cork
"I received a very indepth and detailed report within 2 days of the survey been carried out. Niall also talked me through the reports findings and explained all terminology used. The most beneficial part of the report were the recommendations I received on all issues discovered during the survey. Based on the report Niall provided, I would highly recommend a structural survey be carried out before buying any property"

Property Survey of terraced dwelling, Midleton, Cork
"Many thanks, great service"

Structural Survey of detached dwelling, Douglas, Cork
"Thanks for the pre-purchase survey report, it was detailed and yet clear, and helped me make a decision on the house in question. Thanks also for the flexibility on your time for performing the survey, at short notice, it must be said. Finally, thanks for taking my follow-up questions on the report and answering the queries that I had on it, comprehensively. I won't have hesitation on calling on you again, if required."

Survey of apartment, Midleton, Cork
"Thank you very much for the report"

Snag List of detached house, Glanmire, Cork
"Many thanks for the Snag List; it certainly made for interesting reading and some of the photographs I have taken in the past show up the 'defects' noted. It would appear that a very thorough job has been carried out on your part....I am still trying to digest all the items mentioned but there would certainly appear to be a lot that would require addressing by the Builder otherwise I could be left 'out of pocket' if it were up to myself to get them rectified."

Pre-Purchase Survey of detached house, Fota, Cobh, Cork
"Niall was very thorough and knowledgeable, he provided relevant and useful background information and provided plenty of technical advice. He was willing to explain the technical issues to me in a clear concise manner. He also followed through on several follow up queries for me, he was very easy to deal with and I would not hesitate in recommending Niall"

Condition Survey of school facilites, Fermoy, Co. Cork
"Thanks a million, Niall"

Passive House Build
"Niall worked with us as an engineer on the specification and detailing of the energy systems ( solar panels , heating etc..), insulation and airtightness for a passive house self build which we have just completed.
This involved Niallís in-depth knowledge of BER, building regulations, DEAP software and cost decisions/tradeoffs. In addition Niall met a number of suppliers to verify their credentials and capabilities and inspected the building during construction to develop snag lists( these proved really important!).
During the project Niall impressed me with his ability to develop cost effective, practical and buildable solutions for our home that have proven correct now that we have moved in. Always accessible, Niall produced clear and professional documentation. Most importantly of all, Niallís expertise ensured we made the right & cost effective technical decisions when building our home"
