Dooley Cummins Architects + Engineers

Cormac Dooley, Engineer and Vivian Cummins, Architect have 50+ years’ experience between them in the design and construction sector.

By coincidence they both registered their original separate companies on the same day, 31 May 1997, in Athy and Dublin respectively.

Following a move to Co. Kildare by Vivian and a period of five years sharing office space in Athy, Cormac and Vivian realised they had much in common in their approach to their work, their clients, and their community.

An informal collaboration on some larger scale projects brought about a realisation that this synergy could be harnessed to better serve their clients. The solution was to join forces and set up a new company.

This arrangement is now better placed to offer clients the full range of services they need in an increasingly complex building and regulatory environment.

If you decide to work with Dooley Cummins, you are likely to come across them both, but you will definitely have one of them managing your project.
