Once moved into our new house, one of the first things we decided was that we needed to have a
garage built. Not only to house one of the cars, but be used as a store for garden tools etc.

We obtained planning permission and asked John O’Connell to quote. John arrived at our house
and we discussed the plans, showed him the site for the garage and almost by return sent us a
very detailed and professional quotation for the work required.

Prior to the start, we added to the specification a couple of times and each time, John arrived
to discuss the changes and even added some suggestions himself for which we were very grateful.

We agreed on a start date for the works to commence and sure enough, at the agreed time and date
the Groundsmen arrived – with John to introduce them to us and work commenced!

The Groundsmen, Brickies, Chippies, Roofers, Electricians etc were all very pleasant – nothing was too much trouble and it has to be said (and this is a very important bit) everyone wants work done when they have a project to be completed, but no-one wants workmen on their site, so it was extremely pleasing that the guys working for John were all so amenable, going out of their way to do a great job (almost to the extent that they were doing the work for themselves) and every evening took time to ensure the place was tidied before they left.

John and Keith visited at least once a day during the build to make sure there were no problems and that all was well and Sian, and her colleague, who work in the office kept in touch with us regarding delivery details of materials etc..

The project of building a garage was fairly daunting for us, but John and his team gave a 100% confidence from the “get go” that the build would be as we wanted at the agreed price and within the agreed time span – and that’s exactly what happened.

I would fully recommend John O’Connell and his team to anyone wanting any type of building work to be constructed and in the future would have no hesitation in using this firm again if required.
