About the Project

Poplar Row is a new-build social housing development providing a sheltered elderly residential scheme totalling 29 dwellings.

This project involved a part demolition of the former Block 2 Poplar Row apartment complex and the subsequent construction of a new five-storey development comprising of a mix of living options including 25 single-bed apartments, 4 two-bed and a maintenance unit. Poplar Row also required the delivery of associated storage, office and toilets, internal circulation shared stairways and lifts; a switch/plant room, roof-mounted solar panels; storage spaces, new pedestrian and vehicular entrances, car and bicycle parking.

In addition to providing full M&E design, IN2’s in-house building modelling team contributed to the design ensuring the apartments complied with Dublin City Council’s natural ventilation and light requirements.
