Rapid social housing delivery with high energy. standards

Dublin, Ireland


The project aimed at becoming a “pathfinder” to explore how social housing can be delivered rapidly using factory built components while at the same time achieving extremely high energy standards. The project created new housing at densities that maximise the value of serviced brownfield land while at the same time providing family
housing with own door access. It also created new pedestrian routes to migrate visitors to the seafront to visit and shop in the commercial centre of the town.
The project demonstrated and harnessed the value of collaborative working between public and private sector designers and contractors.
