SMART TECH CHANGES IN THE PROPERTY MARKET

1:50

PANEL DISCUSSION: Revolutionising apartment building with new models

It is vital to Dublin’s housing market and the economy generally that a dramatic increase in the construction of large-scale apartment developments is undertaken, ideally next to transport hubs. New regulations including the increase in the number of permitted number of units per floor, provisions for studio apartments and changes to car park builiding etc are seen as reasons for optimism.

  • Apartment building in our cities.
  • New construction methods for apartment building.
  • What can we learn from other cities?
  • Lowering the cost of apartment building…
  • Facilitating development of high-rise developments in Dublin.
