Company Background


Established in 1972 by Mel Columb, Lissadell Construction Ltd. is a CIRI registered building construction firm located in Dublin. As Main Contractors for over 40 years we have built up a track record of construction work around Ireland of the very highest quality in small to medium scale projects. 

Now under the Direction of Conor Columb for 10 years, Lissadell continues to strive toward the highest standards in building, health and safety and employment.


Lissadell undertakes projects of a varying scale and nature. Each one is a unique undertaking on behalf of private clients or commercial entities, state or semi-state bodies, schools, churches and healthcare organisations. Clients include the OPW, Dublin Diocese, the Department of Arts Heritage and Gaeltacht, Department of Education and a variety of private and corporate bodies.  


We directly employ a team of skilled and experienced craftsmen who are familiar with and work at the high standard expected by our clients. As well as holding standard industry qualifications, some Lissadell staff have undergone specialist fire remediation works training to update their knowledge of fire door installation and fire protection materials. Fire protection works is an area of significant interest to Lissadell. 


Lissadell's building work in Ireland has been recognised by the industry for its build quality through awards such as:

  • 2010 RIAI Irish Architecture Awards - Alzheimer Day Care Centre
  • 2009 RIAI Irish Architecture Awards - Aras na hOidhreachta
  • 2008 RIAI Irish Architecture Awards - St. Paul's Community Centre
  • 2005 OPUS Architecture & Construction Awards - 44 Raglan Lane

These awards demonstrate the range of Lissadell's competence in projects involving modern and cutting edge buildings as well as protected structures and heritage buildings of national importance.


Lissadell has earned a strong reputation for building conservation works over a long period. We have restored countless protected and historic structures not to mention a number of National Monuments and continue to expand on our deep understanding of building restoration with every project. Our membership of the Register of Heritage Contractors is founded on our knowledge-base and experience of restoration skills.


Of course this standard of construction craft and skill not only applies to building refurbishment but to every aspect of a project from foundation to finish. It is demanded of each category of building that we undertake be it new-build, renovation or conservation work.

Lissadell's size enables the resources and professional approach of a large building contractor to combine with the available, hands-on management of a smaller firm.
