Housing market showing signs of renewed activity after long period of stagnation

This year has seen the start of a revival in the housing construction market in the Dublin region, with a number of small housing schemes under construction or coming to the market.

Property development companies are now proceeding with planning applications for new schemes, or amended planning applications for sites for which planning had previously been granted, as there is an unfulfilled demand for quality family homes in good locations in the city.

In recent months Waterman Moylan has provided engineering services for both planning and construction of infrastructure and homes in a number of locations in the Dublin area. Services provided include the planning and design of roads, access, parking, pedestrian facilities, foul and surface water drainage, watermains and open space areas, traffic impact assessment, flood risk assessment, mobility management planning, construction and demolition waste management planning, as well as construction stage support for our clients.
Building of homes is progressing at Clongriffin in the North Fringe of Dublin City; Adamstown in South Dublin County; Honeypark in Dun Laoghaire Rathdown; and in Skerries, Malahide and Swords in Fingal. A number of other schemes, at locations throughout the city, are currently progressing through the planning process.
After five years of a standstill in the construction of residential units, the market is beginning to move to meet with the suppressed demand for homes for new household formations and Waterman Moylan is at the forefront of this recovery.
For further details on the services we provide to the residential sector, contact Pat Opdebeeck (p.opdebeeck@waterman–moylan.ie) or Joe Gibbons (j.gibbons@waterman-moylan.ie
