About Us

Datum Building and Civil Engineering has established a reputation for delivering high quality projects on time and within budget. The company has the capacity and resources to deliver traditional client designed projects or to take the lead and deliver design and build projects. Currently the company employs in excess of 20 direct employees including contracts managers, project managers, engineers, surveyors and office administration staff.

Since establishment the company has grown organically and is now a nationwide company with a recognised quality brand. We have established a close working relationship with all the major players in the construction and civil engineering industry and have become leading professionals in the provision of a wide variety of construction and civil engineering services in Ireland.

Our focus and concentration has always been on finding solutions and anticipating problems. There are seldom projects in this industry that do not have either a delay imposed or a sudden acceleration required. All our staff, from management to field staff, are trained with this mindset. Retaining the same staff helps us anticipate the needs of the industry on a contract by contract basis.

We take great pride in the knowledge that we have always met our Clients requirements and expectations. Where difficulties are encountered we approach them in a structured collaborative manner. We have a strong team of expert management who operate with an enthusiasm to surpass the client’s wishes and the ability to achieve results.

Datum Building and Civil Engineering are leaders in quality, environmental and health and safety and we have achieved ISO9001:2015, ISO14001:2015, OHSAS 18001:2007 accreditation.

Management & Team

The same core of highly respected and experienced engineers, foremen and ground staff are all permanent employees which have been added to over the years. The breadth and depth of our knowledge base established over this period have been integrated into specifications for new projects as they evolve. Throughout our involvement in this industry we have been successful in retaining the services of highly respected consultants and sub-contractors who have added to our success in delivering quality work. Our Company carries a very proud reputation for quality of work with a strong emphasis placed on our attitude and the manner of client relationships. Without this we would not have achieved the level of success we have enjoyed in moving to where we are as a major service provider to the construction industry in Ireland.
