Lancaster Gate,Cork - shortlisted for the Irish Construction Excellence Awards 2024

We are very proud to announce that our Lancaster Gate project in Cork has been shortlisted for the Irish Construction Excellence Awards 2024 in the Residential (€10-€50m) Category.

Lancaster Gate Block D&E is an 86,800 sq. ft. residential development comprising 88 apartments over two blocks on a tight city centre site in Cork city. The development represented a significant milestone in the Cork housing market with the delivery of the first ever large-scale, cost rental scheme in Cork City and marked the first major city centre apartment scheme to be built in Cork in over 10 years.

Ultimately, the successful delivery of this project was a result of the huge vision and ambition of our client, and excellent collaboration between the client, the design and delivery teams to first ensure that the apartment scheme could be viable, and then to work collaboratively throughout the project through to successful delivery.

Thank you to everyone involved in this project and best of luck to all nominated this year!

Given that it was a live site and the administrative offices continued to function throughout the project period, disruption was minimised and management of movement of staff to different locations within the building during the project was facilitated efficiently. Any issues or concerns raised were dealt with positively in a timely manner and the project was completed without delays.”
