Longford construction firms invited to workshop

Longford construction firms invited to workshop

House builders in the Leinster region are meeting on Monday, October 24 in Tullamore to discuss how they can respond to the Government's much vaunted housing strategy.

The gathering is also being held with a view to meeting the  new standards of building introduced in the past five years. 

Dominic Doheny, CIF Senior Vice President and Managing Director of Tullamore based John Flanagan Developments Ltd. said the event was hugely significant for the local construction industry.

“Irish home builders in this region have found it difficult to build new homes for anywhere close to the prices of existing stock,” he said.

“The first-time buyers grant announced in the budget and the local infrastructure fund announced by Ministers Coveney and Donohoe have the potential for first time buyers to acquire mortgages, banks to lend and builders to build.

“Home builders in this region are coming together to discuss how these changes can support activity. 

“The CIF is inviting all homebuilders to these events to help deliver housing supply but also to ensure it is of the highest quality, meeting all current standards of building.

 The free workshop will take place in the Tullamore Court Hotel on  October 24 (4pm-6pm). It is open to CIF members and non-members, specifically tradespeople and housebuilders operating in the area who are involved or considering homebuilding in the region.
