John O’Keefe, MD., O’Keefe Architects
We O’Keefe Architects are RIAR registered Architectural practice. Dermot Keating Construction Ltd worked with us on a project for the Froebel College in Blackrock, Co. Dublin commencing in 2008.
Keatings undertook this complicated project which involved building around an operating third level college, over an operating secondary school building and within a protected structure.
The buildings themselves and all associated services serving the buildings needed to be managed in a very deliberate programme with significant deadlines connected to the educational programme of the schools.
Into this demanding environment Keatings brought a strong management team that delivered the project with the least amount of fuss. Naturally there were problems and unforeseen events outside the contractors control but Keatings and their team worked with us at all times to achieve the necessary quality outcome.
The snag lists were pleasantly short indicating that the contractor was able to direct and manage the various subcontractors too. In short, we were satisfied at the cooperation, engagement and willingness Keatings brought to the project in order to successfully complete it.
We could have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Dermot Keating Construction Ltd, to any organisation.
