Bolands Quay Development to create 500 jobs


The Bolands Quay Development Group has named BAM Ireland as the preferred bidder for the construction of its major development in Dublin’s south docklands.

This project will create approximately 500 construction jobs and it is due to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2018.

Its three buildings will house approximately 36,851 sq. m of office, residential, retail, and 'cultural' space.

It will be able to accommodate up to 2,500 workers.

The development includes the restoration of a number of protected mill buildings and the creation of a new civic plaza looking onto the waterfront at Grand Canal Dock.

Mark Reynolds of Savills commented: "We are delighted to have BAM Ireland on board to construct what will become a landmark commercial and residential development in the resurgent Dublin Docklands area. BAM’s extensive experience in delivering quality developments gives us confidence that this project will complete on time and on budget."

While Theo Cullinane, BAM Ireland CEO added: "We are very pleased to have completed this agreement, which will develop this quarter of the thriving Dublin Docklands into an exceptional commercial and residential space.

"Ireland needs world-class office buildings to attract international investment and BAM is uniquely positioned in terms of experience and expertise to deliver the landmark projects the country needs to compete on the world stage.”

Enabling works, including the demolition of existing silos, restoration of old mill buildings and the piling of foundations, commenced in November 2015 and have recently been completed – allowing construction work to start immediately.

The project is funded by Nama and is being constructed under a single phased development programme.

The Bolands Quay Development Group is comprised of Mark Reynolds & Glenn Cran of Savills Ireland and Cleary McCabe.
