We engaged RENOVA to renovate an apartment that we had just purchased. They provided a super overall service from first contact to final handover.

We had a single point of contact for the duration of the job that was always reliable and available. We were based outside Dublin so were pleased that Renova managed a complete refit with us needing only one site visit during the entire process. They dealt with minor on-site problems independently without allowing them to cause delays.

All enquires and queries were dealt with in a timely and efficient manner including dealing with neighbours in a sensitive manner. RENOVA also handled all contacts with the management company.

Their design studio proved to be a fantastic asset that made the selection of all the fittings and finishes so easy and hassle free.

There was full transparency on costs before the project began and the job finished on budget and on schedule, with no nasty surprises.

PROJECT DETAILS

Our clients live outside Dublin and had just purchased this apartment as a base in Dublin and for use by their college going children. It was in original condition and as such it was dated and cold. We were charged with bringing it up to modern standards.

We were limited in the layout changes we could make. Therefore the brief was confined to upgrading the building fabric and it’s services for comfort, and upgrading the finishes and fittings to suits our clients tastes and requirements. We carried out the full suite of possible retrofit works, given the restrictions presented by working in an apartment block.

The finished apartments is just like all the other RENOVA jobs, it is now insulated to modern standards, there is no unwanted draughts, the heating and plumbing function properly, and all the finishes and fittings have been renewed. This is a new apartment.
