When we met with Sean to discuss the plans for our new home his experience and interest in the project was abundantly clear. We found Sean & his team to be enthusiastic and extremely professional from the outset. Indeed they were always available to discuss any issue with us no matter how small or seemingly trivial.
We are absolutely delighted with the home that has been built for us and would highly recommend Duane Construction Limited for any project.
Seán Duane Construction recently completed a comprehensive renovation of our new home. This was a major undertaking, involving the demolition of the existing extension and building a new addition. Throughout the process Seán and his employees and contractors always endeavoured to ensure the finished home was of the highest quality.
The design presented many complex challenges, but on several occasions, Seán creatively solved the problems, which meant we never had to make compromises and could remain true to our architect’s original vision. The quality of workmanship is excellent throughout, particularly the carpentry and concrete structures, and it is obvious that Seán takes personal pride in every building project he completes. Seán never tried to cut corners, and he was honest and open with us regarding any problems encountered during the project and his proposed solutions.
We are extremely delighted with our new home, and we are grateful for the careful work, creative problem solving and commitment to quality that was consistently evident in Seán’s and his colleagues work.
In the summer of 2007, as part of the refurbishment works of the Corbett Court Shopping Centre, the existing façade of the building was removed and replaced by a new architect designed façade comprising granite with frameless glass windows at street level, render, parplex timber composite panels and glass at upper level on steel frame fixed to structural elevation.
These works were carried out by Duane Construction Ltd headed by Mr. Sean Duane. The complexities and constraints associated with the Job were considerable. The premises are located in the busiest shopping street in Galway with huge foot fall 24/7 in the busiest months of the year.
The practical issues he addressed included the centre being open for business seven days a week. Noise/dust no set down area, working nights/early mornings as required. Health and Safety issues were significant also.
The contract was completed ahead of time and on budget. The dedication and commitment shown by Mr. Sean Duane was exemplary. I have no hesitation in recommending Duane Construction Ltd for any building project for which they tender.
I confirm I have known Mr. Duane as a Building Contractor and been involved with him on various projects for at least 16 years.
The projects have ranged from one-off houses to residential schemes of dwellings and apartment blocks, hotels, factories and a range of commercial projects.
The type of projects have ranged from budget to exclusive and included a broad range of construction skills from conventional build to complex structures.
Mr. Duane has proven to be an extremely conscientious builder with a thorough knowledge of Building Regulations, Construction Techniques and Building generally. His workmanship and what he expects from employees and subcontractors has always been of the highest quality. He generally maintains a personal supervisory role on all projects.
He has proven that he has an ability to perform contracts and complete projects on schedule and within budget.
He also has a thorough knowledge and a willingness to comply with relevant Health and Safety Regulations.
Mr. Sean Duane is in the process of building a third residential estate for me in the village of Kinvara, County Galway. I have found him to be a thoroughly upstanding contractor, on time, on budget and very constructive to deal with. I have become acquainted with him both professionally and also personally as he and his family frequent a restaurant that I own here in Kinvara and have found him to be of sterling character in both capacities. I have never had any negative issues to deal with regarding him and he is absolutely not claims conscious.
I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending him for any job, in fact I referred him to my brother, John Burke, who hired Sean to build the Kinvara Town Centre. Again, I would strongly recommend Sean as a builder of the utmost quality and high personal standards.
Duane Construction Ltd have just successfully completed the construction of a new Texaco Filling station at Lough Atalia Road in Galway. Mr. Sean Duane, his Foreman Mr. Seamus Leahy and the other members of their team illustrated a thorough knowledge of Building Regulations, Health and Safety Regulations, Construction Techniques and Building generally.
Their workmanship and attention to detail was of the highest quality.
The project was completed on schedule and within budget. I have no hesitation in recommending Duane Construction for any job.
