Mount Collins Holdings

MCH

Mount Collins Holdings has been instrumental in working intensively with our client’s design team in investigating and (ultimately bringing about) solutions to meet some development challenges.

For example:

  • reducing excess excavation and disposal of excavated material using structural jousting to all house types.
  • achievement of A3 U-value in 2 and 3 store residential units through the innovative use of spray-foam internally applied wall insulation, while also achieving excellent air-tightness results
  • Lime Stabilization works to alleviate issues arising due to differences in starting levels on site.

Phase 3 is currently under construction (comprising some 84 no. semi-detached, terraced and detached dwellings), with work due to commence later in 2019, on an adjoining site (200+ dwellings), which is currently going through Planning.

We have over 30 Years (+) valuable experience in all aspects of the Project Management, Construction and Cost Management of largescale residential accommodation in the Leinster and – in particular – Dublin regions.

We are dedicated to working with other construction and development professionals in achieving the highest possible standards in residential development, including specialist related services such as Lime Soil Stabilization, and remediation of older development to meet current Fire Regulations and Building Regulations.

Core Principles

  • working tirelessly to achieve the standard expected by our clients, partners and the end users of our finished houses, alike
  • maintaining the highest level of safety (note that Mount Collins Homes carries the statutory role of PSCS on all its development projects),
  • absolute integrity and innovation in ensuring the best outcomes in terms of ease of use, low cost of maintenance, extremely low day to day running costs, while respecting and safe-guarding the environment in which we work
  • playing its part in promoting and fostering growth and prosperity for our sub-contractors, materials suppliers and our employees alike
  • where practical and possible we endeavor to engage with material suppliers, on-site labor and management, and sub-contractors from within the locality where we work.
