Cathal O'Neill & Associates, Architects, Dublin - Contact


Architects are legally defined as those professionals included on a register held by the Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland.

Architects’ core services are focused on the design, detailing and procurement of buildings of all types, including alterations and extensions to existing buildings. Some architects specialise in a particular building type, for example hospitals or pharmaceutical plants, but most firms will satisfactorily undertake commissions of all types as their training enables them to examine from first principles the clients’ needs and aspirations.

The “standard” architectural services are set out by the RIAI and have a number of stages from inception to completion. It is acceptable and indeed common to engage an architect to carry out only some of these stages, for example, only as far as making a planning application.

Architects can also advise on a range of other matters including site acquisition, repairs and maintenance, planning permissions and appeals, garden design, interior design, furniture, and kitchen and bathroom installations. As accredited conservation architects this firm can also advise on and research the history of historic structures and prepare inventories of buildings or groups of buildings.
