  • Join us for this 1 hour CPD launching The Real Costs of New Apartment Delivery Report 2020.

    Ireland requires 35,000 new units per year to meet demand yet delivered approximately 21,000 new units to the market in 2019. With fewer completions in 2020 due to the impact of COVID 19 restrictions on construction, the decisions taken now must be realistic, achievable and sustainable. In this regard, the SCSI Report will assist all stakeholders engaged with meeting Ireland’s housing needs.
