Volumetric Housing in Cavan

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.

Bonham Street Modular Housing

Ground preparation works are underway at Bonham Street, as part of Dublin City Council’s new modular, Social Housing Development. When complete, the accommodation will offer circa 60 social accommodation units over 2 blocks.

The modular element of construction is designed to maximise off site manufacture and reduce overall on site construction time, in order to facilitate a rapid delivery of the units. Similar developments in terms of scale and modular construction methods are underway at Bunratty Road and Cork Street, with other sites in planning.

This project is one of several modular developments that our Cost Management Team are currently working on, both public and private.
