Irish building magazine meets the man responsible for driving Townmore into its second decade of success, Managing Director, James Godley “We have a growing portfolio of clients who we work with on a repeat, almost ongoing basis and these clients are leaders within their respective sectors. The ongoing relationships allow us to understand and support our clients’ objectives on a series of different projects. By adopting such a partnership and relationship-driven approach to add value, Townmore grows alongside them and this is the most sustainable and preferred model of growth for us,” Godley explains.
Townmore team members are stepping it up for cancer support charity Dóchas during the month of October, Breast Cancer Awareness month Townmore employs close to one hundred people working out of offices and sites across the country and 32 members of the Townmore team are on a mission to walk a combined five million steps to raise awareness and a target of €5,000 for Dóchas.

As anticipated by the industry, the Minister for Housing Darragh O’Brien has issued new building regulations requiring residential property developers to install electric car charging points in new apartment complexes with more than 10 car parking spaces. The new ministerial regulations are required for Ireland to comply with the EU’s Energy Performance of Buildings directive, which is introducing similar requirements in all EU member states. Every single parking space in a new apartment development with 10 spaces or greater will need to be fitted with the necessary electrical ducting so that an electric car owner can install a charging unit themselves at any stage.
NEW THREE-STOREY PRIMARY CARE CENTRE, COMPRISING 70,000 SQUARE FEET OF ACCOMMODATION
Last October we were delighted to announce that the Townmore team were preparing to break ground on the much-anticipated amalgamation of Our Lady of Mercy Primary School and Cahir Boys National School. This huge local project was first proposed more than twenty years ago so, understandably, there has been strong interest in the progress of the build from both the community and local media.
Great progress is being made on site and last week saw the team undertaking a 100m3 pour, which started early (as noted by the dawn photos!).
As non-essential construction sites begin the phased reopening this week, great progress is being made by the team at Southern Cross Central. The first of two tower cranes has now been erected by our colleagues in IreEquip and 400 m3 of concrete has now been poured by DPPS Contracts Ltd. Despite the industry-wide restrictions imposed on construction activities as a result of the ongoing pandemic, momentum is being regained and we look forward to watching this much-needed project come out of the ground.
Safety is always to the fore of successful, well-run construction sites and never more so than over the past 12-months. Despite the ongoing pandemic chaos and uncertainty, with non-essential sites closed since early January, Townmore achieved a high level of SafeTCert Accreditation at our most recent safety audit.
