Project Specifics

A €16.4 million redevelopment of an existing Dublin Corporation Social Housing Flats Complex. The redevelopment comprised 51 reconfigured social housing units of increased floor area and 50 sheltered housing accommodation units. In addition the scheme provided a Community Hall, Services, Recreational Facilities, Enterprise Units, Shops and a new Head Office for Cluid Housing, formerly St Pancras Housing Association. Prior to the works, St Joseph's Mansions endured considerable anti-social problems.

Work comprised of the following:
  • Removal of the existing concrete walls and enclosing external walkways
  • Constructing new stairs so that all circulation areas were internal
  • Constructing 8 new lift shafts to allow full disabled access
  • Apartment layouts were altered to provide bathrooms and separate kitchens, with new electrical and mechanical installations
  • All windows and internal joinery were replaced
  • The courtyard was landscaped with a playground and all-weather football pitch
Bracegrade Limited performed the role of Project Supervisor Construction Stage (PSCS).
