Full Bill of Quantities and for our clients energy efficient and bespoke self build home. At first the project was over budget, so we worked with the architect and engineer to see where we could make savings with out compromising the quality, design or clients wishlist for their home. Once this process was complete we and the client was satisfied with the budget and where the money was going we then sent the project out to tender.
We used McGrath Construction Consultants to formulate a Bill of Quantities for the construction of our house. We found "MCC" excellent in listing all the elements that are required to construct a house, a lot of which we would not have contemplated and this was invaluable when we received the prices back from the various tenders as we could compare like with like and see exactly where the various prices differed.
This in turn gave us the tools to go back to the various builders and query them on why certain elements they had priced were either very high or very low compared to the other tenders. The whole process removed any hidden costs and gave clarity to the process and made the process more manageable to us.

Full Cost Bill of Quantities detailing every section of the house from foundations and roof to doors and floor finishes, supplying accurate and detailed cost information specific to Joey and Natalie's requirements for their home. In addition, a full review was carried out in order to identify where savings could be made on costs without compromising on Joey and Natalie's vision for their home.
We enrolled the services of Ronan having heard about a bill of quantities from friends. At first we were a little sceptical but Ronan soon showed us the benefits of its service.
We are now half way through our build and have saved thousands already through Ronan’s expertise and contacts. The bill of quantities was amazingly detailed and clearly laid out.
Ronan was always contactable to modify or change the bill of quantities to suit the ever changing needs of a self-build.
All in all I would high recommend Ronan himself, McGrath Construction Consultants and the service that is provide, to anybody thinking of build or modifying a property, Ronan was at all times professional and extremely helpful.
Ronan was key to our making informed decisions about extending the family home. Ronan priced up the specs and estimated costs involved. This allowed us to think about what was most important to us before putting it out to tender. Ronan facilitated this part and took the stress out of it so that we could make a decision on a builder we were happy with. He even helped negotiate the costs! Ronan's professionalism and easy manner helped us feel secure in making calls on budgets. Highly recommended.

I first met Ronan McGrath at the Smart Leads Network group in Dublin in late 2014. Ronan is a very-dedicated and hard-working individual, he travels from Wexford to Dublin on a very regular basis to service his growing client base. Ronan did a Quantity Survey project for me in early 2015. I found Ronan to be very professional, honest and sensible in his approach to this project. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anybody.
Morgan, Sandyford, Dublin
We hired Ronan initially to do bill quantities for our attic conversion. Ronan presented costs very clearly and explained everything in great detail. Thanks to further discussions with Ronan we were then able to make the necessary savings to keep the project on budget. We are extremely pleased with what Ronan had done for us that we hired him to project manage the build, He was a pleasure to work with and made the process a lot less stressful. I am very happy to recommend his work.
Paul, Dundrum, Dublin
I'm delighted I engaged with Ronan when I did as it really helped me take back control of the planning and execution of our build. Ronan walked me through each item in great detail and as a result of having such a detailed BOQ and costings, it helped resolve a couple of disputes I later had with the contractor and saved me quite a bit of money. Ronan was a pleasure to deal and his professional judgement was invaluable.

I've used Ronan and his team for numerous jobs now. I find them very easy to deal with and great customer service. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a QS.
Great service from mccqs for our renovation. Would recommend.
Excellent company to deal with, great asset to have on your side during a project!
I have used MCCQS on an number of occasions found them to be very professional at what they do and excellent to deal with.
Ronan and his team were of enormous help when we were getting our home renovated. We would not have been able to get accurate or comparable tenders without them managing that process. We then retained their services throughout the construction project and they helped to keep the costs down. Highly recommended.
