The builders and painters have all offered to lend their time to alleviate the housing crisis.
Recently released figures show 83 families became homeless in the city in February alone.
Chairman of the city's Housing Committee, Cllr Dáithi Doolan, said that he wants to see the offer put into action.
"We've had a commitment from decorators, electricians, people who can clean up the houses, people who can put in the windows, electricity, floorboards, painting, decorating, everything," he said.
"it’s a whole array of tradespeople who have come forward, over 800 people have come forward and said that they will bring their tools and turn around these units.
"It's a massive gesture, a huge gesture."
