Oak Leaf Place, Knockmay, Portlaoise

Large urban regeneration project for Laois County Council which included some new build.
All works both to dwellings and major civil works were all carried while all houses were occupied.
Works included the installation of new main sewers, both foul and surface water, new gas installation, new public lighting and alteration to ESB supply to each house.  Existing services were not documented and all work was in a ‘live’ services environment.
Refurbishment included replacement of doors and windows, mechanical and electrical replacement, replacement of finishes and new small extensions.
Access and Egress of both pedestrian and traffic had to be carefully managed.
Contract value €5m
