Project Description:
Social housing scheme and ancillary site works
Design Team:
Architect : Henchion Reuter

Fitzgerald Park is located within Dun Laoghaire, a suburban coastal town in County Dublin. 

As a brownfield inner city site, the enabling works encompassed the removal of existing concrete bases and strip of topsoil. In addition, a temporary car park was constructed for residents living adjacent to the site.

As the site was located within a live residential environment, we liaised closely with the local neighbourhood throughout the works implementing a detailed traffic management plan with all pedestrian and vehicular traffic controlled and timed to avoid peak times.

Dwellings comprised conventional cavity masonry wall, timber trussed rafters with a slate finish. The development was completed with a play park and large communal green areas encouraging community events.
