Welcome to another edition of Construction Magazine, where this month we focus on housebuilding and finding solutions to how the industry can build more homes for more people.
IHBA Chair Sean O’Neill, Managing Director of Park Developments, shares his very unique perspective on the challenges facing the delivery of housing.
He considers the impact of policy and planning, how reform will encourage beneficial change and talks to the significant role that Modern Methods of Construction can play within the housebuilding sector.
We also meet members of the CIF’s Housing, Planning and Development executive team who offer valuable insight into some of the latest industry developments.
Director Conor O’Connell considers delivery within the current matrix of supply constraints, Áine McGinity analyses recent changes to the First Home Scheme, while Rosie James addresses First Mover Disadvantage.
This year’s IHBA Summit also takes place on March 22 at Croke Park, bringing together homebuilders, local authorities, policymakers and key suppliers to explore ways to speed up the delivery of homes across Ireland.
Where do we go from here? In this special edition we delve into the conversation to find out.
This month’s edition also features coverage from the excellent CIF International Women’s Day Conference held on March 8 at Dunboyne Castle.
We meet some of the inspiring women who are leading the way towards a more diverse and equitable industry. We hope you enjoy reading this issue of Construction Magazine.
