Sweco Ireland’s Building Control team are proud to be overseeing Assigned Certifier duties for the O’Devaney Gardens redevelopment in Dublin, which will deliver 1,044 new homes in the heart of Dublin city. When complete, 50% of the A-rated homes will be delivered to Dublin City Council for social and affordable housing.

The Lord Mayor of Dublin Daithí de Róiste comments:

“The redevelopment of O’Devaney Gardens will transform this area, providing amenities for the community and high-quality housing, including hundreds of social and affordable homes. With 50% allocated for social and affordable housing, O’Devaney Gardens is not just a construction project; it’s a pledge to create a thriving, inclusive, and sustainable urban environment in the heart of Dublin. The development has been designed to foster community spirit, enhance resident wellness, and provide a sustainable lifestyle.”
