Our Experience

We have a vast sectorial experience in primary, secondary, third level and special needs educational establishments. We are now poised to utilise this experience to pursue further work in this sector.

In today’s economy, it’s extremely important to get the right balance of value for money and high quality workmanship with a building that is fit for its purpose. This is especially true for the educational sector – each building must be a productive learning environment and adaptable to suit the growing needs of the student base.

Many educational clients find themselves inhabiting a building which is of architectural significance or which is a protected structure which requires conservation or other works. D.K.C.L. is a fully qualified Heritage Contractor and as such we have had a great deal of experience in working on protected and heritage structures.

Whether it’s a complete new build, works to a protected structure, an extension or a refurbishment project, Dermot Keating Construction Ltd. is your trusted partner. We work with the Design Team and the client every step of the way to ensure that the building is something that all parties will be proud to be associated with.

Our focus is always based on the safety and wellbeing of our and your team and of course your students and we have vast experience of safely working in and completing restorations in ‘live’ environments ie whilst the school, college or institute is fully operational.
