Watts appointed on major Dublin development schemes


Watts Group PLC, leading property and construction consultants, has just completed work on two new landmark developments in Dublin.

The firm was appointed to act on the Alliance Building in the Gasworks development and Riverside II on Sir John Rogerson's Quay in the Docklands area of the city.

Watts was instructed by prospective purchasers of the Alliance Building to carry out pre-acquisition technical due diligence, which included invasive exploratory investigations to assess the wall construction between apartments, and to assess statutory compliance issues. The unique circular residential investment property, which is adjacent to the Grand Canal Dock scheme, is one of the most distinctive apartment blocks in the country and is currently in use as a rented apartment scheme with a mix of short and longer term lettings.

The 2006 landmark Riverside II office building on the Liffey was the subject of a comprehensive technical due diligence exercise by Watts on behalf of the prospective purchasers. Watts worked closely with a mechanical and electrical sub-consultant in providing pre-acquisition advice, budget costs for undertaking repairs and remedial works. Watts was also instructed to provide building cost reinstatement advice.
