Handover of 32-Unit Development Round Gardens City West to South Dublin Co Co

Lawlor Burns are pleased to announce the hand of over to South Dublin Co Co of the 32-unit development at Round Gardens City West. We provided our Project Management, Quantity Surveying and Construction Management services, with the team been led by Steven Lawlor as Project Director and Kenny Laurence as Contracts Manger.

The units were originally built as golf suites back in the mid to late 90s and had fallen into serious disrepair due to the property crash. Although the units had stayed in use, they were very much short term and of very poor standards.

The units needed extensive and technically challenging refurbishment, but the team delivered a very high standard unit suitable for safe and secure long-term accommodation for families on the housing list in the area.

The Lawlor Burns team have delivered circa 500 refurbished units nationwide to both private purchasers, AHBs and the various local authorities over the past 3 years.

Managing Director Gary Lawlor said, this latest handover is a credit to the hard work and diligence of the team who persevered with the project despite the very challenging conditions of the covid pandemic, and he also thanked the design team led by Gary Quigley QDM Architects, RediResi Client representatives Mike Stack and John Hickie and the SDCC technical and legal teams for all the support they gave throughout the process.

Lawlor Burns & Associates are pleased to announce our appointment by RediResi Icorp to provide full Project Management, Quantity Surveying and Construction Management services for their long term social housing leasing projects in the Republic of Ireland.

RediResi have secured funding of €91,000,000.00 from their funding partners NatWest Markets PLC and the global investment boutique Alvarium Investments to procure and refurbish up to circa 500 turnkey units nationwide for long term leasing by the country’s Local Authorities.

This is the first of three phases and RediResi have targeted providing in excess of 2,000 additional social housing units through long term leasing over the next 2 years. The Long Term Social Housing Leasing Scheme is a pillar part of the government’s plan to supply 50,000 social housing homes before the end of 2021.

The refurbishment of the first 51 units is commencing on site in February for South Dublin and Fingal County Councils.

Our Managing Director Gary Lawlor commented “it was a great honour for the practice to be entrusted with such a prestigious and important project. Our track record over the last 2 years of rehabilitating over 200 units of existing housing stock, for long term leasing by the local authorities has really counted in winning this appointment and we look forward to handing over the completed units to the local authorities for much needed social housing.”

The re-development and quantity surveying services of King Johns Castle comprised a complete refit of the existing visitor centre at the castle and included the adjoining Castle Lane buildings, along with repair work to the towers and courtyard of the main castle building.

Visitors progress from Castle Lane into the undercroft of the visitor centre via a new stepped ramp at the exterior of the eastern side of the bastion, leading to a doorway adjacent to the northern flank of the bastion. The undercroft showcases the large archaeologically excavated area where numerous discoveries were made in 1990/1.

The highlight of the courtyard is the great hall excavation adjacent to the western curtain wall. This area has never been made accessible to the public before. A new series of steps and decking were installed bringing visitors down into the hall remains for the first time.

The great towers, (nos 1-5) that constitute the key components of the surviving fabric of the monument, are fully integrated into the scope of the project. New display material was  commissioned for each of the towers. The ground floor of the visitor centre has been reserved for retail activity, including a shop and a cafe, with a terrace extending onto the courtyard side.
