Building Community – Halliday Mills, Dundalk, Co. Louth

Halliday Mills is an apartment complex of 85 BER A3 rated one-bed, two-bed and three-bed apartments which were delivered by CHI and stakeholders, in response to need in the area. Members (tenants) moved into the apartments in January 2022. It is currently the largest apartment complex in Dundalk with a mixture of families and individuals from a diverse range of backgrounds. There were obstacles in the beginning to establishing community but through the work of individual Members coming together to form a Member Association, great strides have been made. Collaboration between CHI Housing management, Assets Management and Property Services, Member Engagement and the Member Association has resulted in a happier, healthier and thriving community.

Leading the Energy Transition – Newcourt, Dublin

CHI’s ‘Improving Warmth and Wellbeing’ programme has seen the retrofit of several different types of dwellings. Works completed as part of phase one of the programme were on 20 apartments in South Earl Street and 32 apartments in Seán MacDermott Street. Newcourt, a development of 57 apartments in the heart of Dublin city centre, is the latest scheme to be retrofitted as part of CHI’s Warmth and Wellbeing programme. The apartments are a mixture of one-bed and two-bed homes in a minimalist redbrick nap plaster and architectural glazing four-storey building overlooking New Street in Dublin 8. Shops, parks, cafés, and other amenities are on the doorstep. Previous learning from retrofitting other CHI developments was applied to the deep energy upgrades of Newcourt, which began in January 2023 and was finished in June. As part of retrofit works, households received new windows, doors, insulation and were fitted with air-to-water heat pumps and new radiators.

Best Family Housing Scheme (more than 20 homes)–Amharc Muileann, Limerick

Amharc Muileann is a development of 137 homes comprised of apartments, terraced, detached and semi-detached homes. The homes are one, two, three and four-bed catering for a diverse range of household sizes. The overall look of all homes is traditional with a low maintenance red brickwork façade though they benefit from contemporary construction techniques. The development is broken down into two areas which both have independent open spaces while a large green space divides both sides. The estate was designed with defensible space in mind meaning the design functions to allow residents to become key agents in ensuring their security. Open space areas are centrally located and overlooked by the homes.

‘Regeneration and Renewal –Urban (population more than 5000)’ for Cascade Apartments, Carrigtwohill in partnership with Cork County Council
