About Olympic Construction Ltd - Damp Proofing in Oldham (OL4 2PJ)

And now a Fellow Member of The Chartered Association of Building Engineers, with the following distinction:- ’ You made an outstanding presentation during your interview, and excelled in the competencies necessary for membership and exceeded their expectations in most areas’.
We are a family run trusted and reliable remedial treatments specialist company, who have been serving our local communities for over 50 years. We are based in Oldham (Lancs), covering Manchester and surrounding 40 mile radius.
The 3rd Generation son, Adrian, has this to say:
"I have a hands on approach to all aspects of the works undertaken by Olympic Construction from start to finish. You could say the buck stops with me! Should you have any questions regarding the works and our operatives not be able to answer your question, then I will. I am proud to say that along with being a Certified Surveyor, I am now a Chartered Building Engineer so can resolve any issues that may be worrying you.
My staff and I are committed to undertaking all works to the correct specifications and to a high quality finish. To achieve this we only use time served tradesmen and qualified surveyors with industry recognised qualifications.
Should we come across a problem where additional advice or information is required, we have a wealth of knowledge available from other professional sources and will guarantee a satisfactory response to any query you may have."
We can provide treatment for the following:
- Cavity walls
- Remedial Masonry stabilisation
- Rising damp
- Repairs to flood affected buildings
- Dry and wet rot
- Wood-boring insect attacks
- Pre-mortgage surveys
For our clients safeguard and peace of mind, we also provide a guarantee for any works completed by us from one on the specialist trade insurance providers. (This ensures, that in the unlikely event of either: something going wrong, or Olympic Construction ceasing trading, the problem will be rectified at no additional cost to the client.)
"I am proud to announce we have a new qualified damp and timber surveyor joining Olympic Construction, my son Simon, which now means Olympic Construction has been established over three generations, how many companies can state that?
Since leaving Huddersfield University two years ago (where Simon gained a degree in Business Management and Administration), he has been working alongside me using the knowledge gained from his university degree to improve the administration side of the company, as well as accompanying me on surveys and working on-site with our fully qualified and experienced MVQ qualified damp proofing technicians. Simon has passed the MVQ in damp proofing as well as CSCS Site Safety awareness, PASMA and Asbestos awareness so ensuring the safety of our clients, fellow employees and members of the public as well as himself.
As part of his study as a surveyor he has attended the Property Care Association training centre (PCA) and undertaken the Wood Identification for the Infestation Surveyor course which enables students using a variety of methods to develop the practical skills necessary to identify the most common structural timbers found in house construction. We have recently been informed he has passed his Certified Surveyor in Remedial Treatment examination which allows him to use the letters 'CSRT' after his name.
Definitely not resting on his laurels and looking to the future, Simon being both enthusiastic and eager to learn is already studying for his next qualification with our industry.
Good luck Simon!"

Dee Shepherd - Part 1 of Review 17th January 2017
"I am the proud owner of a 1939 semi detached house, and have lived here for a number of years. However, not too long ago I was unfortunate enough to have discovered some damp in one of the upstairs bedrooms - the smell was appalling and it was when I moved one of the wardrobes I discovered what I can only describe as a black mouldy substance - not good for my other half who has a lung condition. My heart sank, as I knew I would have to get a firm in ( another rip off merchant ready to fleece me I thought to myself). I contacted Olympic after doing some online research and gave them a call. From the moment I spoke to Adrian, he was clear about the process, and he said he would come and do a survey for a standard rate ( now this I liked - I hate to be in the awkward situation of not knowing how much something is ). I advised him that as I work shifts, time and dates have to be specific - and true to his word he was prompt ( 5 mins early actually) and arrived at the date specified."
Dee Shepherd - Part 2 of Review 17th January 2017
"He arrived with lots of complicated looking equipment and assessed the situation, and I received a detailed report outlining the problem within a few days. He had assured me this would be the case and true to his word, he delivered. I decided to go with them as I had been impressed with Adrian’s straightforward and yet professional approach. It seemed to me that this man has a serious passion for all things “damp”, which suited me as I wanted it sorting once and for all. The work was carried out by a professional team, with Adrian overseeing the process at regular intervals. All his team are courteous, tidy and what you would expect from a well managed outfit. My damp problem has been sorted, and I would have no problem in recommending Olympic to anyone that has a damp problem – thanks again !"
Tim Cooke 19th December 2016
"I was extremely impressed with the standard of service i received from Olympic Construction. I felt Adrian really went out of his way to explain matters to me both on the phone and in the documents I received in the post. They were extremely good value for money and I would highly recommend them."
Anna Sullivan - Part 1 of Review 7th December 2016
"We recently bought a house built in 1850 and it was riddled with issues due to neglect and general old age. After wasting money on various different cowboy builders, I came across Olympic Construction. Adrian arrived promptly as arranged to have a look at some of the structural concerns I had with the house and I immediately felt like I was in safe hands. I am a born worrier and after reading up as much as I could about the issue we had with the house, it was so nice to meet someone who has such a wealth of knowledge and someone who was so happy to explain everything to me (I like to understand what needs doing and why). Older properties are often misunderstood by tradesmen but Adrian knows his stuff and I felt completely confident in his hands."
Anna Sullivan - Part 2 of Review 7th December 2016
"After receiving a well written report from Adrian, we employed Olympic Construction to work on our house and despite a few unforeseen problems arising, Adrian and his team managed to solve any problems and our home is now looking better than ever. Throughout the whole process, Adrian was always at the end of the telephone, answering my (many) questions and generally being great. We have some more work to do on the house that we are now in discussions with Adrian about and I won't be looking for anyone else to work on my home as I know that I won't find anyone as good as Olympic Construction. I would recommend them in a heartbeat."
