• We recently hired John O'Brien to construct our house, garage and all relating site works from plans. John has one of the most highly skilled and qualified team’s working with him who were reliable, flexible and have a high level of professionalism. My wife and I felt at ease with all aspects of the build and queries we had for John. He and all his team were very approachable and nothing was ever a problem.

    John and his team made what is usually a very stressful time overall a pleasant few months. Both our family and friends have commented on how good a finish the job turned out. More importantly John came in on time and within budget on the whole project. We would highly recommend John and his team to provide their expertise for any job big or small.

  • JOB Builders acted as both Main Contractor and Project Supervisor Construction Stage (PSCS) on a number of small to medium scale projects over the last number of years where Axo Architects administered the contracts. The projects generally required a high level of coordination, flexibility and ultimately a very strong commitment to deliver quality.

    The projects were successfully completed on time, within budget and to an extremely high standard by JOB Builders. We have always found that the company’s commitment to quality, personal attention and programme to be very satisfactory.
    We have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending JOB Builders for any type of building project, particularly where there is a requirement for a hands-on approach and a high level of finish.
    We will be happy to discuss any aspect of this reference should the need arise.

  • We engaged JOB builders to extend our old farmhouse. The project came with plenty of the complications and unexpected requirements which come when working with older buildings - all of which were handled with a minimum of fuss. At no point did John put a problem back on us the client. Instead he came up with a solution based on his experience and in every case we were delighted with the outcome. Always sincere and upfront to deal with: John, Tommy and the crew completed the extension in a way which exceeded our expectations, was on schedule and within budget. A very genuine and experienced group of builders - highly recommended.

  • Over the past 10 years, I have been the Consultant Engineer on numerous projects where John O'Brien was the Contractor. From an Engineering perspective, John is professional and his work is always of an exceptional standard. He consistently shows a high level of care and attention to detail throughout the building process. Most notably, I recently worked alongside John during the construction of Tourmakeady’s new sports hall. Despite budget and time constraints, John gave 110% to ensure the project was of the highest standard and completed on time and within budget. I would be more than happy to recommend John O’Brien to anyone who is constructing a new property.
