We have years of experience undertaking all types of restoration & refurbishment works.  Below we have provided a few examples of works.

Whaleys Buildings, Castle Street, Armagh


Work here undertaken for Hearth Housing Assocation involved the restoration of 14 Georgian buildings. The roof’s of many of the houses had collapsed, dragging down upper floors and some had basements of indeterminate depth full of sodden plaster and rotting timbers.

The houses dating from 1773 were built from “Armagh marble”. This scheme was awarded a Diploma of Merit by Europa Nostra in 1995.

Number 1 and 2 Capel Street on the corner of Capel Street and Ormond Quay are immortalised in James
Malton’s print of 1797 entitled ‘View of Capel Street’. The buildings are shown as brickfaced rather than rendered
as they are today. However the original round-headed windows on the first floor of number one still survive. The
former Taoiseach Seán Lemass was born in Number 2 in 1899.

Works here included restoration of the internal part of the buildings, window salvaging, below ground tanking (River Liffey runs at the same level as the basement), new electrical and mechanical.
