Project Description

Recently completed at Kavanagh Court, GARLAND successfully delivered 603 student accommodation units in Dublin. 

Phase 1 consisted of an overall building with a gross floor area of 17,000m² incorporating seven storeys (six storey plus set back level and part basement). The entirety of this phase of student accommodation is divided into four blocks comprising 88 cluster units, comprised of a mixture of 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8-bed units.

The development also includes social spaces such as an onsite gym, cinema, conferencing suites, communal study areas, kitchens and large terraces. The building encloses a central landscaped courtyard which includes a badminton and table tennis area.

GARLAND acted as Assigned Certifier and Project Supervisor Design Process (PSDP) on Phase 1 for client Carrowmore Properties from commencement in early 2016, then continued to offer Assigned Certifer services on Phase 2. 

Phase 1 involved the demolition of 18. no light industrial units and the delivery of a design and build student residence complex with associated ancillary accommodation and provision for a café/restaurant.

The project was delivered on an accelerated programme, whereby the original projected finish date was envisaged for November 2017 but was completed three months earlier.

The project was carried out in two phases to allow for early occupation by the client and GARLAND worked closely with the main contractor along with the various design disciplines to ensure compliance with BC(A)R and facilitate the demands of an aggressive programme.
