The Arranmore Residential development (49 Units) has recently been completed on behalf of Marlet for onward purchase by Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council. This consisted of 49 individual Housing Units consisting of individual houses, apartments and duplex units. Metec undertook the most challenging roles in this medium-density development – Building Lifecycle Assessment, Energy/Part L compliance, Site Lighting (Bat-sensitive) and Mechanical & Electrical Design.
Achieving the Client’s requirement for compliance with our Client’s strong ESG commitments and Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council’s requirements (as eventual owner) was a challenge for Metec and the Architect. We worked closely with the Architect, suggesting changes to layouts, depths of rooms and servicing strategies where required to achieve this challenging target.
The certification to A-Rated Energy Rating Standard and meeting our Client’s ESG commitments point to the success of Metec’s approach throughout this challenging project. Metec have enjoyed a long-standing relationship with both Marlet and Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council, and continue to provide expert advice and design to our valued clients.
Metec pushed the Fabric-first approach from the outset, with strong emphasis placed on Insulation Levels, elimination of Thermal Bridges, Airtightness, Mechanical Ventilation to each unit. All units achieved Part L compliance through the use of Exhaust Air Heat Pumps for the smaller units and Air-Source Heat Pumps for the larger units, with LED lighting throughout.
