A recent housing project completed by M.L. Quinn Construction for Fingal County Council at Ballyboughal has just been Shortlisted for the 2019 Irish Construction Excellence Awards (residential category). The Awards Ceremony and Gala Event will take place on Friday 29 March in the Mansion House, Dublin.
This project consisted of the construction of six new two storey semi-detached houses in three blocks and the refurbishment of two existing detached bungalows. In addition, we provided a new access road, footpaths, parking and all associated site works, new boundary walling, fencing and associated landscaping.
In response to the client’s brief, we delivered a high specification housing scheme, built to comply with all the necessary building regulations. We ensured the project met all of the legal, aesthetic and functional requirements of the client while blending in seamlessly with the traditional landscape and environment of its surroundings.
The distinguishing feature of these houses is the beautiful façade with powder coated aluminium bay windows. Construction excellence was obtained in the building of these ensuring the detailed design was in compliance with the Building Standards requirements in regard to structure, air-tightness, acoustics and insulation values.
The end result is a housing scheme that blends into its surroundings, has a positive psychological impact on its tenants while achieving the required level of quality, sustainability, regulatory and legal requirements of the client.
