“After many years and much deliberation, we took the plunge and began our renovation with Renova. 

We have never looked back. We love every aspect of our “new” home and are fond of saying – it’s a new joy every day. 

Our renovation took place during the early stages of the pandemic – just to add to the drama – but this was no problem for such an able, capable and professional team 

From our first dealings with John, to all of our studio meetings, planning and then design meetings for finishes, fixtures and finishes – it was a pleasure. Renovating doesn’t have to be stressful – you just need Renova – to smooth the ripples for you, even in a pandemic. 

We moved back in – on time and on budget – quite the feat given the circumstances. 

Everything was immaculate, and no stone is left unturned to meet our requirements – this is a first-class service. 

In fact, the project was so well managed by them, that it was easy to enjoy, not many can say that, of a renovation. 

John, Paul, Sian, Ger and the team at base – Barbara and Yvonne – all could not have been nicer to deal with, communication is the key here and it is faultless. 

I almost miss them! 

Take the stress out – have Renova in.” 

Project details

This was a classic RENOVA deep renovation, the type of project we were set up to do.

Our client had lived in this house for years and had always intended to carry out a complete renovation. We like to think they were waiting to meet the right ‘renovator’. They contacted RENOVA after hearing about us from work colleagues, and they became the 5th RENOVA client from a particular small professional group in Dublin.

The house was in original condition and was therefore cold and dated. Our brief was to bring it up to modern levels of comfort and energy efficiency. We also needed to optimise the layout and redecorate.

As usual we stared with a complete strip out, we upgraded the building fabric and utilities and then we installed finishes and fittings selected by the client.

All design decisions and finishes were selected at workshops in RENOVA with the help of our in house design team.

The project finished on programme and on budget. And our client has since told us the the new house has been life changing.
