Teknabuild – Construction you can count on

19 Apr , 2022  

Teknabuild is a young and dynamic construction and fitout company operating in the commercial, medical, retail, leisure, light industrial, residential, refurbishment and educational sectors. Also specialising in structural modifications, it has the expertise and experience to deliver on your vision.

Based in Daingean, Co. Offaly, Teknabuild is a registered trading name of Smyth Project Management Ltd which was set up by Roger Smyth in March 2018 and joined in 2019 by business partner and Project Director Sean Reilly.

As well as holding degrees in Construction Management and Quantity Surveying, Roger boasts a wealth of experience in the construction trade, having worked for building and quantity surveying giants such as McAleer & Rushe, Sisk, Elliott Group, PM Group and O’Reilly Hyland Tierney & Associates in Dublin before deciding to go out on his own.

“I had grown tired of the long commute every day, so when the opportunity came along to carry out the full revamp of Scully’s XL Foodstore here beside me in Daingean, we took it,” Roger explains.

“We took on a very challenging structural project to create the space and open plan design Enda and Mary Scully wanted before handing it over in December 2019. We made significant structural alterations, resulting in a large deli area, butcher’s counter, off licence, post office, cold room / freezer room, coffee dock, seating area and 4,500 sq. ft. of shop floor. That was a great start for us and we’ve gone from strength to strength ever since.”

Teknabuild has since designed and built cleanrooms and Lab’s for key clients in Kells, Co. Meath, Athlone and Kilbeggan (both Co. Westmeath). The Kells project involved the installation of a 15,000 sq. ft. controlled environment / cleanroom in a manufacturing facility. Roger and his team used the Kingspan KS1100 CS Quadcore Ultratemp Food Grade cleanroom / cold-room system to create a production hall where the humidity can be controlled.

“We specialize in projects for the medical and food industries, and ensure we deliver the perfect solution for a controlled environment,” the affable managing director says.

“But we don’t confine ourselves to any one sector and have the experience and know-how to act as main contractors on any kind of job. I have experience of working on hotels, leisure centres, data centres and heavy civils, while our project director, Sean Reilly, who is a carpenter/cabinetmaker by trade, has worked as a facilities manager in the past for Airtricity and Mitie while also specializing in commercial office and shop fit-out. Between us, we have the skillset, ability and expertise to deliver any project to your exact requirements.”

Teknabuild is currently working on residential projects in Tullamore, Co. Offaly and Dunshaughlin, Co. Meath among other things, and is focused on growing its commercial and industrial portfolios in the coming months. The contractor’s knowledge and experience mean it is able to offer you all the advice and guidance you need to ensure your project is successful.

Superior workmanship, attention to detail, value-for-money and a commitment to working closely with clients to deliver total satisfaction are the hallmarks of Teknabuild. Health & Safety is at the core of the business, and never more so than in this Covid-19 age. From concept to completion, Roger, Sean and their small but committed team of tradesmen 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 retail fitout or a new house build, Teknabuild’s one-stop shop approach will ensure that both the design and building processes are smooth, comfortable and hassle-free. The Offaly 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 satisfied customers.

“Our business is built on the relationships we build with our clients. That’s why we ensure we lay the right foundations, basing our relationships with clients on trust, professionalism, transparency, great communication and honesty.”

Roger is full of praise for their staff and sub-contractors: “Our crew is a mix of carpenters, groundwork personnel and labourers. We sub-contact everything else to the same tried and trusted tradesmen,” he continues.

“By employing highly-skilled people, working closely with our architects and engineers, and using only the very best building products, we’re able to deliver the highest quality construction to our clients.”

Teknabuild’s excellent relationship with building material suppliers ensures it gets maximum discounts which, in turn, are passed on to the client. Roger is committed to growing the business and providing an unrivalled range of construction services to customers in the midlands, Dublin and beyond.

He would like to take this opportunity to thank his clients and suppliers for their continued support and loyalty. No doubt we’ll be hearing a lot more about this burgeoning company over the next few years.
