Clare County Council has signed a contract with L&M Keating Ltd of Kilmihil, Co Clare, for the provision of a new social housing development at Glór na Srutha, Knockbrack Lower in Clonlara.
The 12-unit housing scheme is being constructed as part of the ongoing Clare County Council Social Housing Investment Programme which has in recent years resulted in the delivery of affordable and step-down units in Shannon and social housing units in Miltown Malbay.
The Clonlara development features 6 No. 3-bed semi detached two storey units, 4 No. 2-bed semi detached single storey units, and 2 No. single storey cottage style units. The housing scheme is funded by the Department of Environment, Community and Local Government and is scheduled for completion by August 2014.
The project design team is led by Clare County Council’s in-house Architectural Services team with engineering design by Hassett Leyden & Associates and Moloney Fox Consulting, and Tom MacNamara & Partners providing cost management.
