The ORS Building Surveying Team stands out from the crowd for two key reasons. Firstly, our Chartered Surveyors are supported by Chartered Engineers in various fields of engineering such as structural and fire safety, which is unique in the market. Secondly, our strong track record demonstrates our ability to deliver with speed and dependability on complex projects. We are client focused and our high level of repeat business is a testament to this approach.

As a highly multidisciplinary firm, we have people with skill sets in all areas of surveying and engineering. Combined with our office locations East and West of the country, our clients have access to superior technical advice nationwide.


The firm enjoys a high retention and referral rate among clients. This is due in large part to the client centred culture we adopt that drives quality, quick turnarounds and clear, regular communication.

Following a successful tender process, Applus Ireland awarded ORS the contact to carry out dilapidation surveys of our national network of 47 National Car Testing centres (NCT). The requirement was to assess the condition of the assets in relation to the obligations of the premises’ leases and the contractual requirements of the NCT contract with the Road Safety Authority. ORS were required to categorise the defects and to provide cost estimates for the repairs. The time scale for completing the activity was 30 days. ORS provided a clear plan with detailed timelines as to how the project would be managed and also highlighted the milestone communication plan for completing the project.  Darren Holmes was project lead and kept our project team abreast of progress on a weekly basis, all resulting in the project being delivered on time, to plan and to a very satisfactory standard.

I work very closely with a Receiver and we ultimately have to dispose of properties/lands which often require mapping and surveying services as well as general building and engineering advices. I regularly engage ORS on such assignments due to the quality of the service provided. ORS are reliable, always approachable and professional.  They consistently provide quality work even on strict and last minute deadlines. I would have no issue in recommending ORS.


We survey the built environment, advising clients on a wide range of issues from property registration to building compliance, including:
