About Us

Privately owned by four generations of the Dunwoody family and founded over one hundred years ago in 1905, Dunwoody & Dobson Ltd is supported on a firm foundation of experience, knowledge, commitment and pride in our achievements.

Ongoing success and expansion can be attributed to our committed and highly qualified management and technical staff, who ensure delivery of projects to the highest standards on time and within budget.

The Company motto, “Quality since 1905” is more than just a slogan – it imbues the Company from site to boardroom and its reality is experienced by each and every client. Perhaps the strongest testament to the quality service provided by Dunwoody and Dobson Ltd is the substantial volume of repeat business we experience. This is upheld by our Quality Management System which is fully accredited to ISO 9001:2015.

Our staff is our greatest resource – men and women who constantly provide a thorough, flexible and pro-active approach to all projects and who continue to pursue excellence at every level of the construction industry.

Several of our Site Managers/Foremen (the core of our building team) have been with the company for more than thirty-five years; some started their career with Dunwoody & Dobson. We are extremely proud of the loyalty shown by our staff and their contribution to the development and success of the Company.

Health and Safety are top priorities and significant resources in supervision and training are deployed to maintain a safe environment for all workers on our sites. We successfully hold an A Grade SafeT cert and continue to treat the Health and Safety of our work place and surrounds at the forefront of any project planning.

The full range of construction services associated with a major construction company are provided, including management contracting, PSCS, alliance/partnering and turn-key contracts in addition to traditional building arrangements by whatever procurement methods clients may require. Dunwoody and Dobson Ltd have built up an impressive portfolio of repeat clients across the full spectrum of Irish business through our reputation for performance, quality and value for money.

Contracts may vary in type and size but our primary activity is undertaking medium to large size complex projects in the following areas – industrial, educational, institutional, medical, commercial, heritage and both new build and refurbishment.

Dunwoody & Dobson also has a stand alone joinery workshop which , based in the city centre, which we have found consistently adds to our ability to complete projects within agreed timeframes.

Recognition of our standard of workmanship and finish has been recognised by our peers through inclusion in such competitions as the Opus Awards, Dublin City Council Awards and the World Building Awards.

Our Senior Management give back to their communities giving there free time to Local Development Projects and are part of Sustainable Energy Community teams. In addition we are also involved within the CIF and SOLAS Carpentry & Apprenticeship Advisory Board.
