“Our company was employed to carry out groundwork’s on a site for a new house. We were extremely impressed with the design and layout of this particular house, which complemented the site so magnificently and were amazed at the acquisition of full planning permission in such a scenic area. Our enquiry as to the designer-led us to Gerry Gleeson from Ballymore Eustace. At that time we had our own controversial site requiring a well experienced and persistent negotiator with extraordinary design skills and capabilities to secure planning permission and do our site justice. Gerry Gleeson was such a person and it was an absolute joy and pleasure working alongside him. Ever the professional with his easy-going manner prioritising our satisfaction he manifested a meticulous, ambitious, unique plan incorporating our ideas through his own unique blend of novel suggestions. He skilfully engaged with planning authorities securing our exact desired site location and layout, directed and managed suppliers and builders, delivering a superb outstanding stress-free build for the entire duration of our project. As the saying goes “you’re only as good as your last job”. This is certainly applicable in the case of Gerry Gleeson. Every project in which he has been involved and there are many that we are aware of, he has clearly treated as a foundation for the next project.“
“From start to finish having Gerry’s knowledge and expert advice was invaluable. Gerry took our ideas on board and gave us our dream home no drama or problems just great service. He was always on hand to answer the phone or to take questions. We could not be happier with the service we got .We would highly recommend the services of Gerry Gleeson to anyone thinking of building or extending.”
“At the beginning we had complications with the planning Department of Kildare County Council but Gerry was able to negotiate all the minefields that came our way. We were very impressed and more importantly pleased with the different ideas that he came up with for the design of areas in our house – vaulted kitchen ceiling with skylights and same on upstairs landing.Gerry was only just a phone call away plus only a two minute drive so always on hand if an issue arose. We would easily recommend Gerry to all those who are thinking of building their own home as you only do it once.”
From the start, they couldn't have done enough for us. We found it hard how to imagine our dream home but Gerry hit the nail on the head with the plans. We couldn't have asked for more, Gerry exceeded our expectations.Throughout the planning process, Gerry was only a phone call away whenever we needed any answers and put our minds at ease. It didn't matter what time in the morning or evening. We were lucky enough to get our planning permission the first time round and no doubt that was up to Gerry and his attention to detail. We couldn't recommend him highly enough.'
He has such a great knowledge of the planning process and what sort of design the Council would favour. During the design and Planning Process, Gerry was always fast to make any changes or answer any queries. After receiving planning permission we knew we wouldn’t have the time or knowledge to look after the build so we asked Gerry could he oversea and project manage it. This was the best decision because he deals with everything from organising the trades, meeting them onsite and resolving any problems that arise.
We had hopes of an entirely personal home, presenting images of quirks and kinks we had accumulated from years of cataloging features we had seen before. Some of those features were abruptly taken off the table as we learned what was achievable and what was not. We were worried but Gerry had our vision and dream always in his mind. The land was awkward, our needs were awkward and countless obstacles stood in our way. With Gerry at the helm, we felt assured at every step and we cleared each hurdle with a reserved calm and optimism for the next. Gerry was never more than a phone call away. When we finally got our letter granting our planning permission, we found ourselves shocked with what we had achieved. We had a plan we loved. We had a plan that became far more personal than any combination of stolen features we thought we wanted. We had a plan that was us. On that piece of paper was our future home. Gerry, Michael and Alan are so much more than professional, they are realistic, they are determined, they are attentive and they are passionate.
