They worked carefully to ensure that the execution of the build and attention to detail were flawless and delivered on budget and schedule. We would be happy to recommend them for similar projects.”

“Mark Doyle Building Contractors (MDBC) and I collaborated on the construction of a light Industrial Unit in Bray, Co. Wicklow in 2008/2009. MDBC were at all times diligent and professional in their approach to the project. I was impressed with the way they approached the project, in terms of methodology and integrated thinking which aided the building schedule and the final realization of the design.
They were quick to become acquainted with the overall project and brought a lot of valuable resources to the table, including cost effective measures and alternative construction ideas, which all colluded in an efficient, cohesive solution. I would have no hesitation in recommending MDBC for further projects that I will undertake in the future.”

“Mark Doyle Building Contractors completed an Attic Conversion for Tony Mullen Architects in early 2008. MDBC completed the contract on time and on budget. The quality of workmanship was high and the Contract was characterised by a spirit of cooperation and flexibility, on the part of MDBC. We would have no hesitation in recommending Mark and his team.”

The architect designed house built for us by Mark Doyle Building Contractors was designed to be almost energy neutral. It incorporated Underfloor and water heating powered by an Air to Water heat exchange using approximately 1/4 of the energy of the best gas boilers. 4kw of photo-voltaic panels on the roof, rainwater collection for washing machines, toilets and garden use.
The quality of the construction can be gauged by the pressure test specified by the architect: Building Regulations specified 7.5, the architect specified 3 and the test showed 1.07 which is very close to Passive House standards. Such tight construction required controlled ventilation and this system incorporated heat exchange to minimise heat loss from the house. At all levels the quality of the work and finish were all we expected.
Combine the above with the interest and care that Mark Doyle took in the overall construction and the easy liaison and discussions which were necessary throughout the construction process and the entire process was much more enjoyable than we, as clients, had expected.
The only downside was a minor delay in the finish date due to the difficulty of drying a house in mid winter which was so well built and sealed.
