DalyHudson Building Surveying & Architecture


Pre-Purchase Inspections & Building Surveys

Our building surveys are carried out to a very high standard. Our Building Surveyor investigates all structural elements as well as the buildings fabric. The survey will also record findings for Building Exterior, Building interior, Services, Boundaries, Outbuildings as well as any outstanding planning & neighbouring/boundary issues.

We  use the latest non-destructive technology/equipment to assess your buildings performance including thermal imaging cameras, moisture meters  and  sound meters.

Once we have all the information from our site survey we will generate a condition report including detailed descriptions of all issues & defects, a list of images & a commentary. We aim to have the report back to you within a week from confirmation of our services.



We have vast experience in the preparation of Costing, Take-Offs, Budget Summaries, Concise Summaries  and Bills of Quantities.  Our reports are used in projecting costs and can be beneficial used on the following projects:

1. To construct new-builds

2. To repair/reinstate works caused from defects or damage to existing buildings

3. Producing costings for insurance reinstatements

4.To hold negotiations between vendors and purchasers in relation to sub-standard elements


Architectural Design & Planning Permission

We provide a complete design and planning service to our clients, working with you from initial concept through to a final planning decision. We are highly skilled in architectural design and work with our clients to achieve a unique design to suit your needs, preferences and budget.

Site location map

Legal Mapping

Legal mapping is required for registration of sites and properties in Ireland. When purchasing a site or a new dwelling or building we can provide all  the relevant documentation. We provide compliant Land Registry Maps for all building types and sites. We survey the existing site or  property, measure all dimensions in relation to the mapping and produce maps which are then certified.


Project Management & Assigned Certifier

DalyHudson provide Project Management and Assigned Certification to all building projects. Our building surveyor carries out Building Regulation Design compliance, prepares inspection plans and  we liaise with the BCMS and Building Control Departments as required under BC(A)SR regulations.

Our project management services provides  you with  the   knowledge that your project is under the control of a suitably qualified professional. All projects are certified with  compliance certificates at  the end  of the build.


 Site Suitability Tests

We are FETAC approved site assessors and carry out site suitability tests for planning applications, inspections for septic tank/percolation upgrades, infiltration tests and water attenuation design. Our assessors place a strong emphasis on the quality of our work and our reports as well as a high level of customer care.  A site assessment will ensure that the best type of wastewater treatment system is chosen for your site.
