Councillor Aisling Dolan welcomes start of construction on Roscommon social housing units

Work has begun on the construction of social housing units in Roscommon, under the government’s Rebuilding Ireland Programme.

Late last year the Public Private Partnership contract for Bundle 2 Social Housing was awarded to Torc Housing Partnership, which will provide 465 social housing units across 8 locations around the country, including Roscommon and Galway.

53 of these units will be based at The Walk in Roscommon town and construction on the first of the houses is now underway with an expected completion date of Summer 2021.

The construction work on the contract is being delivered through a joint venture between JJ Rhatigan & Co. and the Spanish firm Obrascon Huarte Lain S.A. Upon completion of construction on the Roscommon site, facilities management services will be provided by Derwent FM and Tuath Housing Association for a 25-year service period. Tuath will also provide tenancy management services.

 

“The progress in building these badly-needed social homes goes some way towards helping the hundreds of people still on Roscommon’s Social Housing Waiting List. We are committed to providing more social and affordable houses in areas such as Roscommon and East Galway where families are struggling

and I’m delighted to see Rhatigans on site at The Walk with building work now underway,” Cllr. Dolan said.
