Back in 2019, almost €34 million was allocated to Wicklow County Council for the rapid delivery of 124 new social homes across the county in Bray, Wicklow Town and Rathdrum.

ABM Design and Build Ltd. was tasked with the delivery of 40 of these much-needed new homes at Ashtown Lane, within 1.5km of Wicklow Town. 

This new development comprises a mix of single and two-storey one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom houses, suitable for families of up to five people, in an attractive suburban setting.

The Horizon Offsite team worked with ABM to achieve the accelerated build programme by designing and manufacturing a structural frame comprising panelised light gauge steel, or LGS, frames with integrated insulated wall panels at our facility in Cahir, County Tipperary. The structural elements were then delivered to the site in Wicklow, for erection over a short time period.

These high quality, A2-rated homes, are well insulated and feature triple glazing, ensuring compliance with building regulations and the exacting requirements of Wicklow County Council.

These 40 homes were recently completed and handed over to Wicklow County Council and we are proud to have played a part, supporting ABM, in the delivery of this vital social housing.
