Cogent Associates is back on site providing Employers Representative Services to Cluid for the delivery of essential social housing in Dublin, Cavan, Killarney and Dingle.
The range of housing and apartment types is intended to respond to both general and special needs, with scope to accommodate families of varying size, single people, older persons and people with disabilities.
A resumption of operations has been made possible thanks to careful planning and review of the health and safety documentation and procedures by the project team and the client and the willingness of all to comply to the new Health & Safety Standard Operation Procedures. It is encouraging to see signs of recovery, with construction sites gradually reopening, safely.

We are delighted to be able to share images of a volumetric housing development we are working on with Cluid Housing at The Gallops, Co Cavan. Thirty four houses are being installed using pre-fabricated room pods and rafters. 80% of the construction takes place in a controlled factory environment, with only 20% construction required on site. See our LinkedIn Video for more images.

With housing shortages and the EU’s NZEB deadline for newbuilds looming, the social housing developments by Cluid in Co. Kerry are current examples of rapid build and energy efficient construction.
Cogents experience with this development, combined with DCC’s modular building projects, is providing us with valuable insights into new construction methods, designed to meet the current demands facing the housing sector.
The major challenge, as outlined in the SCSIs most recent Tender Price Index Report, is the skill shortages. With costs forecast to rise another 6.3pc this year, well-informed, fact-based decision making will be crucial.Tags: DCC, Housing, residential, Cluid, TPI, SCSI
