CONSTRUCTION OF BRAY’S NEW MULTI-MILLION EURO NEIGHBOURHOOD CENTRE BRINGS OPPORTUNITIES FOR LOCAL INDUSTRY
Building contractors Townmore seeks Wicklow and Leinster-based suppliers for its pipeline of new projects, including the construction of an exciting new residential development at
Southern Cross, Bray in County Wicklow.
Earlier this year, Townmore began the main works on a multi-million euro residential development for Lioncor Developments located on lands at Southern Cross Road in Bray, County Wicklow. The mixed-use residential development will comprise 160 apartments across four separate five-storey blocks.
Townmore is keen to engage with the local community and particularly, construction workers, subcontractors and suppliers across Wicklow and Leinster for this and other construction projects in the region. The supply chain and construction workers being sought encompasses the following: Crane drivers, general operatives, groundworks, masons, concrete subcontractors, roofers, scaffolding companies, plasterers, partitioning contractors and suppliers for all key materials for this project. This list is a small part of the requirements and we would welcome any suppliers or subcontractors that would be interested in working with Townmore on the development at Southern Cross and other projects nationwide.
Headquartered in Tullamore, County Offaly, Townmore recently built and opened a new regional office in Santry, North Dublin. This follows the opening of offices in Cork and London in recent years. Over the past decade, Townmore has earned a strong reputation in the industry as an emerging leader, delivering projects across the residential, commercial, hospitality, healthcare and education sectors. This rapid growth and expansion have been attributed to the team’s relationship-driven approach to creating and maintaining a robust supply chain. The business invests heavily in its people, which is essential to combat the current skills shortage within the industry.
Speaking about the commencement of the project, Managing Director James Godley said: “The designation of both public and private housing delivery as an essential service throughout the latter months of the pandemic was a welcome and necessary move. Southern Cross is an important project, not just for Townmore, but for the people of North Wicklow who have been waiting for new homes and greater access to quality rental homes. It will be a transformative addition to the town and indeed to the surrounding area. At Townmore, we understand the importance of local contribution to this building work. By adopting such a partnership approach, the value added to the local community is enhanced.”
