Ballymun Regeneration Projects
DBFL provided engineering services on the different phases of social housing at Shangan as part of the Ballymun Regeneration Projects, working with different architects on different phases of Shangan, from 2002 to present date.
DBFL has acted as area engineer for Shangan in the redevelopment of some 600 units within an existing complex, necessitating the phased removal of services with introduction of new services. The sites used were public open spaces remaining available or the sites where former tower blocks were decanted and demolished.
Shangan 5a/5b – This most recent development consisted of the construction of a total of 93 social housing units including 35 apartments and 58 housing units on a 2.2 Ha development site in Ballymun. The works also included remediation works to external areas of the adjoining existing Shangan Gardens housing estate and provision of a external public open space.
