Celebrating 15 years in business, DS Construction Services has earned an enviable reputation for new builds, extensions, renovations, attic conversations, kitchens and bathrooms in the Dublin area.
Since 2005, the family-run business has been providing top quality domestic building services to a long list of satisfied customers. Based in Castleknock, DS Construction is committed to offering an exceptional building service and maintaining the highest standards in all aspects of its work. The company combines traditional values with a modern approach to efficient, best practice methods and is renowned for delivering projects on time and within budget. It is passionate about providing superb customer care at each stage of your building project.
DS Construction was set up by Daniel Slamon, who takes a hands-on approach to every job. Daniel served his time as a carpenter with a small building firm before deciding to go out on his own. He employs six staff directly (two carpenters, two labourers, one plumber and one apprentice carpenter) and uses the same sub-contractors and architects.
“We’re a one stop shop for all your domestic building needs,” he explains.
“We can look after everything, from new builds and extensions to fitting new kitchens and bathrooms. We deal with the same reputable suppliers. By letting us manage your entire construction project, we can save you time, money and hassle.
“We do all our own carpentry and build our own kitchens. We are in the process of opening a small workshop which will speed up the production of kitchen units and will allow us to build kitchens off-site. We offer a complete, customised solution for your perfect kitchen.
“We pride ourselves on the quality of our workmanship and our ability to complete projects on time and within budget. Our finish is of a very high spec’ and we only use the very best materials. We’re booked up until the middle of next year, so business is good at the moment.”
DS Construction insists on working with builders who share its enthusiasm for beautifully-finished projects. Each member of the team is experienced, friendly, efficient as well as being fully trained and safety compliant. They will always respect your home and will leave it spotless when they’re finished.
When it comes to building a home that meets your budget without compromising on your dreams, DS Construction has few equals. The company has extensive experience in completing new builds for both private customers and property developers alike. Designing and building a new home is one of the biggest projects you can undertake and DS Construction is here to help, advise and make your new build a stress-free process with superb results. The DS Construction team will take you through the process, advising on structure, safety and energy efficiency as well as on other lesser known aspects of new builds such as local planning laws and regulations.
They are with you every step of the way and will still be there for you after the project is completed to make sure that you are 100% satisfied with your new home.
It makes good economic sense to ensure your home is built to the best energy rating possible and, in this regard, DS Construction can offer advice on the most effective methods and features to use so that you can conserve energy and costs in your new home. Its new build architect is skilled at combining your budget with your goals so that you can achieve what you want without spending more than you intend to. The company will give you a clear, detailed quotation and talk you through each aspect of the price. By combining its experience with innovative thinking, it can offer cost-effective solutions without ever compromising on quality or safety.
House extensions / renovations are another speciality. An extension is all about creating more space in your home and also adds value to your property, meaning you’ll get a return on your investment if you decide to sell at a later stage. As part of its free quotation, DS Construction can advise on how to create an extension that not only maximises space within your home, but also increases its resale value.
The contractor has completed numerous building projects over the past 15 years. It recently finished a new build in Coolmine along with extension / renovation projects in Knocklyon and Porter’s Gate, Clonsilla. Current projects include extensions to homes in Charnwood, Clonsilla and Blanchardstown Village, and a house renovation in Castleknock.
“Most of our work is carried out in the Dublin 15 area – Clonsilla, Blanchardstown and Castleknock. But we will go wherever the work is,” Daniel says.
“At DS Construction, customer satisfaction is always guaranteed. Our reputation for quality construction and attention to detail is borne out by the high volume of repeat business and referrals we receive. Most of our business is secured through word of mouth. It’s the best form of advertising.”
Health & Safety has always been paramount with DS Construction and never more so than in the wake of COVID-19. Daniel ensures that his team follows all the relevant guidelines and takes all the necessary precautions at all times.
“Everyone has their Safe Pass and Manual Handling training done,” the affable managing director continues.
“We were in the middle of a few jobs when the national lockdown was announced. We were expecting cancellations and to lose work, but the opposite has happened and we’ve had to take on an extra labourer. People who were thinking of moving home decided to stay and extend or renovate what they have, and that has obviously created more work for us.”
Daniel concludes by saying: “We would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers, suppliers, architects and sub-contractors for their support and cooperation. And not forgetting our brilliant staff for their skill, hard work and dedication.”
