Our home was completed in 2004 after almost 4 years of purchasing, designing and planning. 
Building your own home can be a very stressful and anxious process, but we can honestly say that Oliver's calm and orderly approach helped us enormously. 
The attention to detail and level of skill from the workers employed during construction ensured that our home was completed to an exceptionally high standard. 
Oliver is a perfectionist and this is reflected in his choice of skilled tradesmen who are employed by him.

We have no hesitation in recommending Gribbin Developments to 
anyone embarking on the process of building their own home. You can be absolutely assured of an end product of the highest quality. 

A & M O'Brien

Gribbin Developments completed an extension to our home in 2014/5, taking approximately 12 months to complete.  We selected the company following a tender process, supported by the recommendation of our architect and the project QS.


Throughout the project we found Oliver and his team highly professional in all that they did but more importantly very accommodating and pragmatic in dealing with the practical challenges, which come with such a project.    


The dedicated site foreman worked very hard to make living on site as easy as possible for us, and had a very proactive and patient approach throughout the build. The workmen were always very professional and accommodating, taking great pride in their work. Many of them had worked for Oliver for several years, being tradesmen that Oliver could rely on.


We are both very pleased with the quality and workmanship of the end build, and are enjoying the new space.


We would not hesitate to use Oliver and his team again.
