Design Team: Leitrim County Council – In House
This project consisted of the construction of 6 No. 2 storey 3 & 4 bedroom Social houses for Leitrim County Council. This was a very difficult sloping site which involved a lot of excavation and construction of retaining wall before construction took place.
The construction generally comprised of deep dig foundation trench filled with lean mix concrete and reinforced strip foundations with solid rising walls with in situ reinforced concrete suspended ground floor; external rendered block work insulated cavity walls, plaster internally; timber stairs and 1st floor construction; prefabricated timber roof trusses with concrete tile covering; PVC window and solid hardwood external doors. Electrical and mechanical services were carried out by our own Domestic sub contractors. As part of the Mechanical installation Solar panels were used as an alternative means to heat water. Associated site works including retaining walls, railings road works and landscaping.
