About us

Since 1991, ORS has led the way in anticipating and responding to diverse client requirements in the construction industry. Time and experience have enabled us to create significant additional value in our projects with the blending of nine distinct, specialist design and build services. 

This multidisciplinary approach uniquely includes civil and structural engineering, project management, infrastructure, health and safety, building surveying, assigned certifier, fire safety, energy management, and environmental services. Over the decades, we have developed trusted, lasting partnerships with our property developer, international project funding agency, local authority, government agency and private clients. Our end-to-end project collaboration with stakeholders, architects, design teams and contractors ensures excellent, innovative solutions. 

Founded on the principles of value management, ORS is committed to the highest industry standards in quality, efficiency and performance. Our cutting-edge building technologies and multidisciplinary expertise enable us to adapt to change and successfully connect, collaborate and engage at every level. We ensure complete and seamless connection and coordination between the client, stakeholders and our multi-skilled project team members.

Our external awards and accreditations attest to our world-class multidisciplinary solutions and our people-first approach.

What defines us

Our Competitive Advantage

The multidisciplinary service. We are the only Irish consultancy offering this blend of services and while some customers may only require one service at a particular time, the support from other specialist fields is a source of value.

We focus heavily on the client relationship, emphasising responsiveness and dependability of delivery, building long lasting relationships through investment in client events. This source of competitive advantage adds a strong subjective element to our brand.

We cultivate a unique work environment, centred around trust, autonomy, and flexibility. We have a low attrition rate and a strong organisational culture. Our brand is therefore appealing to a wider group of stakeholders, i.e. current and future employees, eventually translating to a more consistently delivered service.
