Sean Treacy House wins Overall Award at 2011 Community Housing Awards

Sean Treacy House, a 53-unit residential development in central Dublin, has been declared the best new social housing project in Ireland in the 2011 Community Housing Awards.

The awards were announced at the Irish Council for Social Housing biennial National Social Conference in Galway.

The project was also the winner of the Regeneration category, for “excellence in the delivery of social housing, showcasing how innovative design can help create sustainable communities and impact positively on the lives of residents, the local and wider community, and contribute to a greener environment.”

The scheme involved the demolition of an existing 1960s flat complex on the site and its replacement with three to five storey buildings around the perimeter of the site, providing a mix of apartments, duplexes and townhouses. The new residential buildings enclose a landscaped courtyard including a children’s play area and a resident’s community meeting room. Car parking is provided in a single level basement under the courtyard.

Waterman Moylan provided full civil and structural engineering services as part of the project team, which was led by award winning architectural practice, Paul Keogh Architects. Waterman Moylan was also responsible for the initial demolition and enabling works contract.
