Springville House – Social Housing Development of the Year

We are delighted to announce that the Springville House project has won Social Housing Development of the Year at this year’s National Property Awards.

This development, a result of the partnership between Cork City Council, Tuath Housing Association and MMD Construction, represents an innovation in housing provision. This office-to-residential project, in the heart of the city, has resulted in the conversion of a derelict office building into 35 new A-rated homes for those looking to ‘rightsize’ to a home that meets their changing needs and requirements whilst freeing up existing properties for younger families.

This conversion of a vacant office building into a residential space is a strong example of sustainable urban development and a leading example of the Council’s award-winning Rightsizing Scheme.
