Testimonials

Camphill Community Ballybay has engaged Mr Thomas Horan of Horan DMC to submit proposals for future development in the areas of special housing, workshop facilities and other projects within the community campus. Mr Horan consulted with Local Government Offices, surveyed the sites, and made preliminary plans to be discussed with management of the community. Throughout the process, Mr Horan was very sensitive to the special requirements of a facility for people with special needs, and was also able to make allowances for some limitations of funding, by keeping his fees at a very reasonable level. We are going ahead with our projects under the supervision of Mr Horan, and we are confident of a good outcome, which will provide first class housing and workshop facilities for the residents of this community for many years to come. We have no hesitation whatever in recommending Mr Horan for any design and management projects in his field.

In September 2011, I engaged Mr Thomas Horan a project manager to bring about the completion of outstanding works and the transfer of common areas on the Ard Riadha estate, Geashill, Co Offaly. The project is on-going at the time of writing. I have found Thomas to be a very pleasant to work with. He is efficient, diligent and he follows through on the instructions to their conclusion. I consider Thomas to be a competent and capable in his area of practice and I have no doubt he would be capable of undertaking projects much bigger than my own. I have found Thomas to have good interpersonal skills, and nothing fazes among his diverse challenges posed by dealing with the County Council and similar bodies.

I can confirm I employed the design and project management services of Mr Thomas Horan of Horan DMC. I had an extremely tight deadline to complete the works, thus, I placed a lot of trust in Thomas; he carried our work systematically and kept me informed along the way, as a result kept me informed along the way, as a result he was able to meet my requirements and get the project over the line. Thomas is a very open and honest professional who knows what he is doing. His ability to save money by rethinking our approach is and redesigning our proposal is a very valuable asset. Thomas provided a very high quality of servicers, and as such we are currently working with him on another part of our business development. Thomas worked very hard to protect us as the client and I would like to wish him the best of luck with the business in the future. In short for any planning or construction related projects I would highly recommend Thomas Horan of Horan DMC.

I Sarah Dooley wish to advise you that I got Thomas Horan to do the planning for our pool, snooker and gaming arcade in Fair Green Portlaoise. This was a very complex project as from the start of the planning people were telling us it will never happen and to forget it but we went ahead. Thomas had to work very hard for us. The fact is a gaming arcade we received a lot of objections and submissions to Thomas had to work around all these and he did so very professionally. Thomas is very professional, honest and open. He worked extremely hard for us as his client. Thomas would not accept no from Laois County Council and went on to take on An Board Pleanala, Thomas got the Board to overrule Laois County Councils decision and now our business is booming. I would have no hesitation in recommending Thomas Horan.

Thomas has fought hard against those who have tried to hurt us and have made life hard on us when trying to seek planning permission. Thomas proved very helpful and trust worthy. He acts in a very professional and mannerly fashion which inspires a lot of confidence. I would like to tank Thomas for all his work to date and, I look forward to working with him again in the near future. For a good job done, call Thomas Horan of Horan DMC.
