Quintain Limited has established a subsidiary in Ireland with plans to develop more than 9,000 new homes and 600,000 sq ft of commercial space.
The newly incorporated business, known as Quintain Ireland, will be responsible for the residential development of over 460 acres of prime assets in Ireland at Adamstown, Clonburris, Portmarnock and Cherrywood. All these sites are owned by affiliates of Lone Star Funds and will be managed directly by Quintain.
The business will launch with an experienced 12-person team focused solely on Ireland, jointly led by Eddie Byrne and Michael Hynes.
The Quintain team in Ireland is expected to grow to over 25 next year and will manage a range of local construction partners. The Irish team will be fully integrated with the wider London-based team.
The decision to expand into Ireland follows the increase in demand for housing, especially in the Greater Dublin area, as more people move to take advantage of the strong economy and job opportunities.
