During 2012, we carried out a substantial building project at our family home in Sandyford. The project, an 84 sq metre extension as well as internal renovation and upgrading to the original 1990 house, was completed on schedule and to budget by Tom Lennon Construction (TLC). Dealing with Tom Lennon was a pleasure. As a professional engineer with 40+ years’ experience, I have only on occasions met a project leader with such excellent communications skills. Tom engages well on a personal level. He works to understand his client’s requirements, issues and pressures and responds accordingly.
Tom employs an excellent close immediate team. Each member showed great attitude, commitment and a respectful consideration for the client and his needs. Any subcontractors introduced by TLC were also of high calibre. In addition to his own subcontractor colleagues, TLC worked well with two separate contractors introduced by ourselves, Landscaping and Mechanical / Plumbing, to ensure smooth progression of the work on site. We found Tom particularly clear on costs. Where extras or extra work (inevitable in such a project) were required he dealt with these concisely and ensured there was no ambiguity or confusion re same.
While “extras” are never welcome, in each instance, Tom secured our commitment and agreement before he undertook any such work. We had some non-standard building issues e.g. linking old construction and roofing to new, partial retrofitting a modern under floor heating system and linking this with under floor heating in the new areas, raised ceiling extension, rainwater harvesting and improved insulation throughout. The project was carried out on an exposed site during a very wet summer which gave serious challenges at foundation laying stage. TLC worked extremely diligently to ensure no step was passed unless totally in accord with the appropriate standards, to ensure no long term problems could ensue. There was keen attention to detail at all times. We were very happy with the work carried out and with our dealings with Tom and his team throughout.
TLC worked to high technical and personal standards. As clients, we found Tom trustworthy and open in all our dealings and fully recommend TLC for such a building project. The whole family, parents and 3 younger generations (22 to 28 years), now 5 adults, is completely happy with the finished job.
I have worked with Tom Lennon Construction Ltd, on 3 domestic projects to date over the last 3 years. I have found the team reliable, informed and professional. Tom is meticulous in following the specifications and prices his work transparently at Tender Stage.
This is vital, to maintain throughout the construction phase, the quality and standards envisaged at design stage. I find Tom knowledgeable in terms of current Regulations, and applies appropriate solutions to on-site problems and most importantly does not take shortcuts.
He has the ability to come in on time, despite third party delays and has surprisingly beaten the clock on two separate projects, which I could not see happening. He manages his projects to the highest standard and keeps excellent records, which makes closing out projects easier all round.
I would happily recommend Tom Lennon Construction Ltd, and have done so several times, even where budget restraints meant no on-site services from myself – in order to be sure the client was taken care of.
We engaged Tom Lennon to carry out a complete refurbishment of our home including the building of a new kitchen in 2013 and we are extremely well pleased with the overall result. Tom is the consummate professional who is always fully on top of the job and will never leave you in the dark in relation to any aspect of the project.
His objective is always to please the client and he will constantly update you on any issues as they arise and provide solutions to them. With Tom, there is always a solution and his work ethic and that of his co-workers is to the very highest standard.
We have known Tom for a number of years and are familiar with other projects he has completed. The feedback has always been very positive. We had absolutely no hesitation in recommending Tom and his team.
I employed Lennon Construction to carry out an extension and make internal alterations in my four bedroom detached house in Rathfarnham, Dublin 14. The company was recommended to me by friends who had work carried out by Tom Lennon and his colleagues in their homes so I was in the privileged position of having seeing this first class work before I commenced my project.
I can honestly say that Tom was truly professional from beginning to end. As I was not employing an architect he collaborated with me in the production of plans which were creative, practical and contemporary, and most importantly within my budget. He offered constructive advice with regard to appropriate materials, colour schemes and novel ways of utilising every available space. He kept me informed of on-going developments during the different phases of the process and was more than willing to go the extra mile to ensure that I was completely satisfied with the final product. He insured that the undertaking was stress free and an enjoyable experience.
It gives me great pleasure to recommend Lennon Construction to family, friends and the wider community.
We have worked with Tom Lennon on several projects over the past few years and have consistently found him and his team to be extremely diligent, conscientious and enthusiastic in attaining a high standard of finish within budget – the result being in each case a happy client.
We look forward to many more projects together and have no hesitation in recommending Tom.
I employed Tom Lennon Construction to work on our house when we made a small kitchen extension.
When we planned a larger, 6-month project, we asked him to help us again and are pleased that we did. The work is performed to a high standard, including a clean finish; he respects and works well with other building professionals; his work crew are unfailingly courteous and helpful; his objective is to ensure the client is satisfied.
It gives me great pleasure to recommend Tom Lennon Construction.
