Despite the many obstacles thrown up during the process, Architect John Butt in particular, was very attentive; producing an inspired design and dealing very effectively with the Area Planner. Brian was quick to respond to any queries and helped to make the process easier by keeping us informed at each stage. We found all Staff at BOK friendly, efficient and quick to respond. We could not have found a better team.
DB Schenker worked with Brian O ’Kennedy & Associates during an €8 million investment that we completed in the Little Island area of Cork in 2015. Brian and his team were very professional and supportive throughout the project and we are extremely happy with the end results in our facility.
The company met our expectations in every way and guided us to a successful application. Throughout, I found them to be highly professional, honest and always available via phone, mail or in person when required. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services to any potential client.
BOK have undertaken various projects for me personally, and commercially. We find BOK to be an exceptional professional service provider, always bringing creative design skill and a professional approach to executing and administering contracts and contractors. We continue to engage with them and are happy to recommend them.
I engaged with Brian O’Kennedy & Associates for work on my family home. We have found them to be very professional, informative and easy to deal with. I would like to thank Brian and his team for all their hard work and would recommend his firm highly for any professional services you may engage them in.
