What our customers say
Tony is involved in a number of our residential one off home projects. The scope of his work includes complete site services, installation of Bio cycle & percolation areas, sewers, drainage, driveways and laying of footpaths. I find Tony's extensive experience and knowledge of the building regulations and proactive solution oriented approach very helpful. I will have no hesitation in using or recommending Tony’s services in the future.

Kevin Murphy

Director, The Green Build Centre (
I've used Tony Daly Plant since I started some 15 years ago and he has never let me down. He's very experienced which I've personally learned a lot from and he's always willing to go the extra mile if needed. Always top of the list when I'm looking to do groundworks.

Mark Higgins

Building and Construction
Tony was involved in our new house build from the beginning and we found Tony a pleasure to work with, from clearing the site, digging the drains and installing our treatment plant. His work was excellent.....The work Tony done on our foundation and footpaths was flawless.....We would highly recommend Tony to anyone starting a new build......
