How We Work

Every project begins with a free on-site consultation. We prepare a quotation and once agreed, we provide a signed contract covering detailed costs and what work is to be completed.

Transparency and staying committed to the project schedule are core values for us. Each project is closely supervised by construction manager Stephen Conaghan, who will also work on site.

Our focus is always to manage the site with minimum disruption for you and your family throughout the project. 

We Follow Best Practices

At Shinte Construction, we treat every project as if it were own home. We listen to your needs and use our expertise to deliver a top quality result for you.

What Our Clients Say About Us



From the moment that Stephen quoted us for the work in our home, we knew we were in safe hands. He was realistic and honest in his assessment of the work. We were having a small extension put onto our kithcne and we could not have been happier with the standard of finish to the work from start to finish. We were constantly consulted on important decisions. Furthermore, and most importantly, Stephen fully understood the needs of our family and consistently made efforts to minimise the disruption to us and our children. He was always on the other end of the phone and constantly on site for dealing with our queries and has done everything in his power to source the best materials and best workers for our house.

Maynooth, Co. Kildare


75sqm Extension
Absolutely thrilled with the outstanding work Stephen, Ruairi and team did on our new extension. From start to finish, the experience was seamless. They listened attentively to our needs, offering insightful suggestions along the way. They were organised, responsive and the craftsmanship is impeccable. The team was professional, punctual, and respectful of our home throughout the entire process. Our new extension has transformed our living space, adding both functionality and beauty to our home. We couldn't be happier with the results and will continue to highly recommend Stephen to anyone looking for quality, value for money and great attention to detail.

Celbridge, Co. Kildare


I chose Stephen's quote out of four and I'm glad I did. Stephen used skilled tradespeople and quality materials in the build and his clean site reflected his professionalism. I have asked Stephen to quote for a second extension to the rear of our home and would have no hesitation in recommending him.

Frequently Asked Questions

The best way to contact us is by mobile phone until 6pm on work days. Outside of these hours please contact us via the contact form on the Contact Us page of this website.

Generally there is quite a bit of lead time before we can start. We guide you through this process. The earlier you engage with us on a project the better.

Quite often it depends on the clients preparation up front and their ability to make decisions quickly. Over runs are usually caused by a client’s desire to add more to the original plans. We advise against this.
