4. Have you completed similar projects in Athlone or Roscommon or nearby so that we can look at it or even speak to the customers?

Yes, we have completed both large and small projects in the area and are happy to provide references and site visits if required.

5. Will you be able to commit to our project, especially if it is a small project – they may be worried that they would be neglected.

We always recommend that they speak to similar project owners that we have worked with. Our policy is that we give a project timescale, working with the client and we will stick to this timescale at all times. Some projects can be weather dependent or external factors.

Before you begin your project, Kilduff Construction also recommend the following:

1. Get a reputable engineer/architect to act as a project supervisor – design stage (PSDS), to design a full set of construction & planning drawings and to prepare a detailed specification.this will ultimately save you money and ensure that you get what you are paying for. With the details, you are vulnerable to loose interpretation from contractors.  This helps the contractor to submit a competitive quote with nothing excluded making the tender process much fairer and transparent. There there a number of excellent engineers and architects in Athlone, Roscommon, Mullingar and beyond and we can recommend some that we have worked with in the past.
