Careys Building and Civil Engineering is currently building 56 new social housing properties at the O’Devaney Gardens redevelopment project in Dublin, Ireland. Originally conceived in 2008 as a project to regenerate a 1950s flat complex, this redevelopment scheme was delayed for 10 years. Once this important project was revived, we were contracted to carry out phase one of the development.
Once completed, the overall O’Devaney Gardens scheme will provide 585 new homes – 30% earmarked for social homes and 20% for affordable housing.
Phase one of O’Devaney Gardens gets underway
After a decade-long postponement, ground was finally broken last summer on this project. We are carrying out the first phase of the development, which includes constructing two apartment blocks – that will stand three and four storeys high – as well as a selection of terraced homes.
We will also deliver associated site development works – such as road realignment, which will require detailed traffic management plan approvals by Dublin City Council. Additionally, we are supporting the creation of the project’s associated infrastructure by demolishing the current ESB substation and reconstructing a new ESB substation, enabling excavation of block D.
