With over 20 years experience.

Essential Facilities Ireland was established February 2019 by Gavin Keogh. Although EFI is a recent start-up company, Gavin Keogh, the company founder, has over 20 years’ experience in the construction and facilities industry. This wealth of knowledge in all aspects of building construction and maintenance has resulted in the successful completion of a number of large, medium and day-to-day projects over the last 20 years. Gavin has most recently worked with Ibat College Dublin, acting as Facilities manager for two large campuses with a daily footfall of 2.5k students and 200 staff.

Essential Facilities Ireland has a very committed panel of technicians that all share similar traits, technical competence, professional and personable manner with a genuine care for the clients’ needs and concerns.

An appreciation of any potential cost savings, adhering to deadlines, prompt responses and an overall 'can-do attitude' are extremely important to any client. Our goal is to provide a service which is not just another project but a personal service, building relationships which last a long time.

Our Mission

Essential Facilities Ireland’s mission is to work with companies who have previously used large main stream facility management companies and are not happy with the poor response times, bad communication and over charging that can typify this sector.

EFI is extremly responsive and our rates are particularly competitive relative to those of large maintenance companies. This is achieved by the low over heads we incur in comparison.

All calls are dealt with directly by the Company Director, Gavin Keogh, who ensures all technicians are on-site and dealing with your issues promptly and efficently. Our hands-on proactive approach is evident through all team members, including the Company Director.

We at Gourmetfuel Ltd have been using Gavin and his team from Essential Facilities Ireland for over 1 year now. Anytime we have maintenance issues, upgrades and replacements needing fitting we call Gavin to get the job done.

Gavin and his team are not only professional but reliable and trustworthy, all work carried out is finished to a very high standard.

Without having such a reliable company to call on, we would have major delays and issues to maintenance that we just cannot afford.
