Brief

Lafferty Architects were appointed to deliver 30 no. social housing units across three sites in Co Meath using a Design & Build procurement process.

The development will provide thirty families with new high quality homes, all achieving a BER A2 rating with a high level of external and internal finishes. The full site area was utilized creating large garden amenity spaces for children to play and supporting the growth of young families in the area.

In the delivering our service, Lafferty Architects produced production documentation to meet the employer’s requirements, building regulations and  associated guidelines.  In addition, we provided design certifier, architectural services, detailed design drawings, design team lead and BIM visuals throughout the tender and construction process.

Response

The houses are fabricated using a sustainable modern method of pre-fabricated timber frame panelised modular units, finished to a very high level to include triple glazed alu-clad windows & clay brick facades.  All units are being constructed to best practice to achieve a minimum BER rating of A2 and will far exceed current minimum air tightness and cold bridge standards.
