Dardis Construction – Building the future

25 Jun , 2024  

Dardis Construction Ltd has earned an enviable reputation for delivering high-quality private residential projects in the Meath, Louth and Dublin areas.

Specialising in new builds, extensions and renovations as well as some commercial work, the company – which is based just outside Ardee – was founded in 2016 by brothers Keith and Shane Dardis. Both are bricklayers by trade who worked in their father Finbar’s building firm for many years on a variety of projects. Collectively, they gained experience in every aspect of home renovation, including plumbing, electrical, structural and aesthetic, all of which gives Dardis Construction the enthusiasm of a new company matched with the experience and knowledge of a much older one.

The brothers have put together a top-class team to meet the growing demand for residential and commercial contracts. They work with the best engineers, designers and specialists to ensure that each project gets the attention and expertise it deserves. Keith and Shane have also developed a strong network of contacts with other professionals in the field, thus ensuring there are no restrictions on what they can provide.

Each project is entered into as a partnership. The family business’ objective is to deliver a dream home which is structurally sound and safe. It will never dissuade you from what you desire and is always happy to do the research needed to create something new and innovative.

Superior workmanship, attention to detail, value-for-money and a commitment to working closely with clients to deliver total satisfaction are the hallmarks of Dardis Construction. Health & Safety is at the core of the business, and never more so than since the Covid-19 pandemic. From concept to completion, the Dardis team are with you every step of the way, ensuring that your new project is designed and built to your specific needs, and that there are no hidden or extra costs involved.

Whether your next project is a new build, refurbishment or extension, Dardis Construction’s one-stop shop approach will ensure that both the design and building processes are smooth, comfortable and hassle-free. The Co. Meath contractor’s reputation for quality construction and ability to complete projects on time and within the agreed budget is borne out by the high volume of repeat business and referrals it receives from architects, engineers and satisfied clients.

By employing highly-skilled people, collaborating with clients’ design teams and project managers, and using only the very best building products, this fully-insured contractor is able to deliver construction projects of the highest standards.

Dardis Construction’s small but dedicated team are supported and supplemented by the same tried and tested subcontractors, including Donal Matthews Carpentry, Fox Electrical, Shane McKenna Heating & Plumbing and Base Engineering. Its main suppliers are Chadwicks in Drogheda (formerly Eddie’s Hardware) and P Carberry Sand & Gravel in Collon, Co. Louth. Furthermore, the company has an array of machinery, including diggers, telehandlers and dumpers, to carry out its own civils and groundworks.

Dardis Construction can deliver the exact look and feel you want in a new home, extension or renovation. It can also carry out deep retrofits which achieve a BER ‘A’ rating.

“We take great pride in providing a high-quality experience to all of our clients,” Shane says.

“Our outstanding reputation has led to much of our new business arising from referrals and excellent recommendations from our previous clients. Over the years, we have undertaken many challenging residential and commercial projects, and accumulated skills, know-how and experience in design and build solutions, project management, building trades and related works.”

Keith adds: “We have worked hard to build a name that people can trust. The architects we deal with have no problem recommending us thanks to our high-quality work and reliable service. We have a great relationship with our clients who are only ever a phone call away from us.”

Dardis Construction is currently working on a number of exciting projects. These include home renovations in Ashbourne, Rathfarnham and Clogherhead (holiday home) and a new build in Lordship. The contractor has also recently completed renovations in Terenure and Dundalk, and a new build in Togher, Co. Louth.

“The average size of our one-off new builds is 2.500 sq. ft. Houses are getting bigger, despite the rising costs. Thankfully, material costs have settled down a bit. What we’re finding is that people are building later in life because of the costs involved,” Shane explains.

Dardis Construction is a generous supporter of local clubs and organisations. Keith and Shane are delighted to support the Syddan footballers, Newtown United FC and the Dee Rangers ladies footballers in their local community.

As their exceptional family business continues to go from strength to strength, the Dardis brothers would like to take this opportunity to thank their clients, suppliers, subcontractors and architects for their continued support as well as their hard-working team for their dedication and expertise. They are also grateful for the support and advice of their families.
