Terra Nua were contracted to complete the re-build of our Shared Services Offices in Dungarvan after they were destroyed by fire in January 2014. They did an excellent job and on completion the end product exceeded our expectation. The project came in on time and within budget. We found John and Lucia great to deal with and they were always willing to listen and deal with any concerns we had. We got very valuable advice from them during the build which helped to have the end product of a very high standard. We have retained Terra Nua as our building and maintenance contractors and they continue to do excellent work for us.
