  • At Felix O’Hare & Co Ltd we approach every project with honesty, integrity and commitment.
  • We establish and maintain strong partnering relationships with our clients, architects and engineers, suppliers, sub-contractors and end-users, resulting in strong and efficient working relationships.
  • We encourage a culture of excellence in our quality procedures and measures and work with our design teams to develop innovative and sustainable designs.
  • Our commitment to customer satisfaction is achieved through open communication, exceptional quality and always with an eye on the final costs. Our record of repeat business reflects this philosophy that the project is never complete until the client is completely satisfied.
  • Health & Safety is our number one priority, and is fundamental to every aspect of our business. We believe that every injury is preventable and we embed that philosophy into every project through our procedures and on-going training programs.



At Felix O’Hare & Co Ltd we adopt a policy of ‘Right First Time’ to all projects. We deliver high quality, cost effective solutions on time, the first time.

We recognise the constant challenges faced by the construction industry and have the experience to combine our existing high standards of work with a more advanced and innovative approach. We achieve this through  working collaboratively with our clients and the design team to ensure the project objectives are agreed at an early stage and are then delivered.

All our projects are delivered within a safe, considerate working environment and we ensure that each project is subject to ‘hands on’ Director involvement.



A traditional owner managed company for 100 years, we are guided by firmly held values and recognise that our work has an impact on the wider community. Our success as a business not only depends on the delivery of profitable projects, but also in our ability to honour and respect that wider community and society as a whole.

We integrate corporate social responsibility (CSR) into our business values and every project we undertake is guided by them:

  • We will ensure that our business is carried out in a safe and sustainable manner that is socially responsible and respectful of the environment.
  • We have a well-established culture which is grounded in integrity and respect and we adhere to the highest standards and ethics. Our reputation as an ethical company is one of our most valuable assets.
