Our management organization which includes Pat and Paul Doran are qualified as Passive House Tradesperson and Passive House Consultant respectively. All our personal and trades have completed training in air tightness and thermal bridging. This means we bring a team with an exceptional level of expertise to every project, a team capable of delivering buildings to the Passive Standard. This is demonstrated from our experience on fully certified Passive House projects.
We have a wide range of experience in upgrading existing buildings to low energy standards. This has included the Passive House Enerphit standard and a Conservation renovation of an historical building.
A strong background in Passive House Building means we are uniquely positioned to deliver buildings to other low energy standards such as the Irish Building Regulations and the forthcoming Nearly Zero Energy Building (NZEB). We have completed numerous projects which are close to “Passive” in terms of their low energy performance.
"Pat Doran and Pat Doran Construction Ltd. have worked on projects (mostly houses - from 75 sq.m. to 600 sq.m.) for and with me for about 25 years. I have always found him to be thoroughly professional in the manner in which he carried out his work. He has a team of top class tradesmen. He is always ready to accept instruction and offer advice on site and is always very attentive during the construction and attending to any problems/snags that arise post construction."
“Pat has successfully completed a number of large private family home projects for us over the past twenty years. They include a number of renovations and extensions to a one hundred year old listed house in an urban location followed by the gutting and large scale renovation and extension of an existing three storey modern house in the countryside. All of these building experiences have been very positive for my wife and I due mainly to Pat’s constant engagement and communication with the Client, his endless attention to detail, his ability to resolve complex design issues in a practical way and his commitment to completing the project within budget. He brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to all of his work and has repeatedly delivered the highest standards of finish to all of our projects. All of the above skills bring significant added value to the building process and are therefore of major benefit to any Client.”
"Before we commenced our house build we knew of Pat’s excellent reputation and our experience has been that this reputation is well deserved. Pat is a true craftsman as are all of the tradesmen who work for him. This is reflected in the numerous positive comments on the finish of our house, both internally and externally. We were not surprised with these comments as we experienced on a daily basis during the course of the build the skill and pride taken by all involved on the project . From the moment we accepted Pat’s tender to build our house Pat was a pleasure to deal with. He was always on hand to discuss progress and dealt very effectively with all problems that arose during construction. We found Pat to be someone of great integrity and honesty. Our building experience was very positive thanks largely to Pat."
" Pat and his team have produced excellent projects for us at ABA Architects and what has most impressed me is his high standard of finishes and his extreme reluctance to walk away from any snag item needing attention. He has displayed an eagerness to engage in the search for creative solutions to unusual details or challenges as they arise and an inspection of his completed works bear testimony to this rare master craftsman approach to construction."
