New Social Housing for Cork, Clare, Galway, Kildare, Roscommon and Waterford

ORS has successfully gained a position on the Government’s PPP Scheme Framework for the provision of PSDP advisory services for approximately 465 social housing units.

Social Housing (Bundle two) of the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform Budget in 2015, comprises of eight sites across counties Cork, Clare, Galway, Kildare, Roscommon and Waterford. The construction of the 465 units will commence immediately following the award of the contract, with construction expected to take between 14-18 months. The construction works on these developments will be delivered by a joint venture between JJ Rhatigan & Co. and the Spanish firm Obrascon Huarte Lain S.A. The above project is the second bundle of units being delivered through the Social Housing PPP Programme. This brings the number of social housing units under construction across Ireland through PPP to 999 across 10 local authorities.

Alison Dale, Health & Safety Team Leader at ORS said today: “ORS is delighted to take part in our third PPP scheme across healthcare and housing. This opportunity represents a significant part of rebuilding Ireland’s social housing infrastructure and utilises our diverse experience in delivering bespoke health and safety advice to project teams.”
