Construction work on the project is well advanced. The contractor moved on site in late April following the lifting of Covid restrictions and once the formal contract had been signed. Leetherm are the main contractors and they are a local firm based in Fethard. Significant works have already been undertaken on the refurbishment of the old Stanwix accommodation units. Essentially this work involves combining two of the old units together with a complete refurbishment taking account of the protected status of the building. The end result will be delivering an accommodation unit to meet modern residential standards.
The foundation and subfloor works have also now been undertaken on the new build units – 5 new own door bungalow apartments and a 5-bed community home. Recent photos of works as they progress are available here.
