FAQS

It is important to source an architect or building surveyor, who understands traditional buildings and who specialises in their repair and refurbishment, we would recommend that they have a conservation accredition. A number of organisations maintain a database of contractors with suitable expertise and these can be accessed through their websites. The Irish Georgian Society has a register of practitioners at www.igs.ie  and The Royal Institute of Architects Ireland (RIAI) has a list of conservation accredited architects which can be found at www.riai.ie. The Construction Industry Federation has a register of specialist Heritage Contractors at www.cif.ie.

Below is a non-exclusive list, intended as a guide for owners and occupiers of historic buildings, of specialist contractors.  Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council cannot be held accountable for contracts entered into. Before commissioning a contractor, always ask to see examples of their work and references.
