Peter McVerry Housing Trust

The Construction Industry Federation (CIF), its members, and supporters have joined forces with the Peter McVerry Trust to refurbish 12 homes for the homeless in time for Christmas. The Sisk Group supplied and installed 12 kitchens, dining room units / furniture and associated fittings. The project saw extensive internal renovations of the properties.

Pat Doyle, CEO of Peter McVerry Trust, said: “We are delighted to have been able to partner with the Construction Industry Federation Members and their supporters to deliver these units. We’d like to thank everyone who contributed to the project that has left us with 12 high quality studio apartments which are ideal for single people in need of social housing. The project also underlines what can be achieved when we work in partnership, have the will to achieve a clear objective and the resources to match. These 12 voids have been completely transformed in 12 weeks. This is a format that we hope will be replicated next year and in the years to come”

The new tenants will be individuals taken from Dublin City Council’s housing list including people coming directly from homeless services.
