From Latvia to Ireland: The Journey of a Master Builder

Vladimir Kursis's journey began in Latvia, where he honed his skills at building college, specialising as a steel fitter, carpenter, and site manager. Eighteen years ago, he moved to Ireland and twelve years ago, he established Kursis Building Services.

"The move was challenging but immensely rewarding," Vladimir recalls. "Starting my own company allowed me to bring my vision of quality construction and renovation to life."


Diverse Expertise & Passion for Steelwork

Kursis Building Services offers a wide range of services, including home extensions, renovations, conversions, kitchens, insulation, carpentry, and interior work. Vladimir's favourite part of the job?

Steelwork. "Steelwork is my favourite part of the house extension process," he explains. "From evaluating if a building's structure can support the weight of the beams with a structural engineer, to positioning and welding the beams, it’s a challenging yet satisfying process."


Commitment to Customer Satisfaction

For Vladimir, ensuring customer satisfaction is paramount. "Good and consistent communication is key," he emphasises. "I make sure the client understands what’s happening at every stage of the project.

I also ensure my team takes care of the client's needs, as it can be daunting to have many different faces on-site at any one time." By establishing clear communication channels and regular updates, Vladimir ensures every project runs smoothly.


Memorable Projects and Transformations

One standout project for Vladimir was the renovation of a Victorian residence in Violet Hill, Bray. "The property, situated on the grounds of a mansion, had immense character with high ceilings, gothic-style windows, and stained glass," he recalls.

"We fully renovated the house, including the entrance hall with period tiles, large living room, bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, and a mezzanine room. It was an amazing transformation and a pleasure to see the finished result."



Adapting to Market Needs

Vladimir’s career has taught him the importance of adaptability. "I started as a steel fitter but evolved to meet market needs," he says. "Today, there’s a demand for full renovation services, including upgrading homes for energy efficiency.

Our business is fully SEAI registered to meet these needs." This adaptability has been key to the sustained success of Kursis Building Services.


Advice for Aspiring Builders

Vladimir has some sage advice for those starting out in the trade: "It’s a hard job but a rewarding one. Be prepared for hard work, problem-solving, and the ability to adapt as construction practices change. Staying updated with industry trends is crucial."
