Turner & Townsend in Ireland
With sentiments improving, we're helping deliver successful assets and safe, sustainable environments.
Ireland has become the preferred location for a number of global corporations to establish their EMEA operations. We have been advising (among others) Facebook on their state-of the-art EMEA campus in Ballsbridge, Dublin. Many providers manage their data here and we are well-placed to support them as they continue to grow to service increased demand.
Ireland has one of the most educated and diverse young workforces in Europe, another draw for international companies continuing to invest here. We have longstanding relationships with Ireland’s top universities and are working on some of their most significant projects, including one of Trinity College’s largest capital projects.
The biggest challenge for Irish real estate continues to be the lack of suitable housing stock, particularly in urban areas such as inner-city Dublin. A shortage of supply has seen house prices and rents continue to rise. We are advising several developers on numerous large-scale mixed-use projects around the city to help alleviate some of the pressure.
Climate change is very much at the forefront of client thinking. We are supporting many of our clients in procuring their portfolio in alignment with their sustainability initiatives and building targets.
Major investment in transport and utilities projects are driving increased activity in this sector. We are working on the multi-billion euro MetroLink project in Dublin, linking Dublin’s city centre with the airport, as well as assisting Eirgrid and Irish Water in the expansion and upgrading of their existing systems and portfolios.
