Townmore Construction places huge importance on the safety and sustainability of our people and our business. As such, we endeavour to provide a safe and healthy workplace across all company operations and projects. Through our Building Safely Together ideology, the Townmore team, leaders and project stakeholders reaffirm our commitment to developing and maintaining a culture that proactively promotes occupational safety and health, one that strives to prevent personal injury and to maintain a safe and healthy workplace.
These game-changing technologies include BIM, digital twins and 3D modelling, modular construction with 5D, augmented reality, IoT and additive manufacturing (3D printing). Big data is both enabling and driving this industry optimisation. While some of the technologies listed above have been around for close to a decade, their use for traditional construction processes have evolved.
At its simplest, ‘Lean’ as a productivity term refers to the most efficient use of all necessary resources and minimising waste in order to maximise value for the client and the business, which is good for the industry at large. Meeting clients’ needs and expectations, while using fewer resources, is certainly possible, however, it requires exceptional project management and lean principles help to keep this on track.
Thanks to David Allen and the Townmore HSQE team for their work in promoting proactive health and safety across the organisation during the pandemic via the CHECK4SAFETY Process:
Last month - prior to the industry shutdown - our Townmore team broke ground on a significant new apartment building development at Southern Cross in Bray, County Wicklow for Lioncor Developments. The mixed-use residential development, when complete, will comprise 160 apartments across four separate five-storey blocks. The construction methodology will include RC ground floor slabs and transfer slabs, precast walls and upper floor slabs, together with modular bathroom pods. The apartment complex is part of a larger social development containing houses, a creche, community centre and a large supermarket.

Long-Awaited School Building Brings Opportunities for Local Construction Industry One of Ireland’s most ambitious building contractors, Townmore, seeks Tipperary-based suppliers for its pipeline of new projects, including a new school build in Cahir. More than two decades after it was first proposed, the amalgamation of Our Lady of Mercy Primary School and Cahir Boys National School is finally commencing and is due to break ground imminently.
The Townmore team recently introduced a live C-19 Health Declaration and monitoring programme to assist in the management and tracing of COVID-19 across all projects and office facilities. The uptake by our staff and stakeholders has been outstanding, providing Townmore Project Managers with a real-time overview of the health, safety and wellbeing for our workforce. The use of QR code technologies in this manner demonstrates Townmore’s proactive approach to minimising COVID-19 in our workplaces and our ongoing commitment to providing safe places to work across our sites and offices. www.Townmore.ie
