About Uisce Éireann

Uisce Éireann is committed to playing its part in the national drive to provide homes to people who need them by developing and prioritising the delivery of key water service infrastructure.
Making progress in this area is a top priority for Uisce Éireann with one of the largest investment portfolios in the State, with €5.2 billion being invested between 2020 and 2024 to improve water services infrastructure.
We have significantly increased our capability to support planning referrals, connection applications and onsite quality checks to support the delivery of housing. In 2022, Uisce Éireann issued positive connection offers associated with 36,989 housing units.

Projects that enable new homes, growth and more reliable and safe water services are being accelerated across the country this year. Some examples of progress already made include Lough Mask, Vartry and Cork Lower Harbour supporting water services in our communities.
We are working in partnership with all those who are committed to the goal of providing homes, to ensure Uisce Éireann can deliver water infrastructure where and when its needed.
We listened to industry and stakeholders and have made changes:
Published first ever Water and Wastewater Capacity Registers on water.ie to give an indication of whether there’s enough water/wastewater capacity in an area for development – to support developers and Local Authorities to prioritise areas with services.

Rolled out Self Lay in the Public Road programme – we piloted and now are delivering a programme that facilitates the laying of water services infrastructure in public roads by developers.
We launched a new Experience Based Accreditation Scheme that will accredit Experienced Contractors to deliver new water services infrastructure in public roads for housing developers. The scheme, which has been launched 18 months ahead of schedule, recognises contractors’ adherence to Uisce Éireann’s Standard Details, Codes of Practice and Quality Assurance procedures.

Working with our regulator the Commission for Regulation of Utilities, Uisce Éireann has developed a First Mover Initiative policy proposal to mitigate ‘first mover disadvantage’ for developers.

About Cygnum Building Offsite

Established in 1997, Cygnum is one of Ireland’s leading offsite manufacturing companies. We have over 25 years’ experience in the design and manufacture of timber frame structures including volume house building, hotels, apartment blocks, care homes and schools.
In 2011, Cygnum built one of the UK’s first Passivhaus registered schools in Wolverhampton. The success of the project and quality of our work achieved widespread recognition to the extent that we are now the main timber frame supplier to other such projects in this market.

In 2013, we became the first Irish company, and one of only two in the UK and Ireland to have a Passivhaus system certified by Germany’s Passivhaus Institute.

Always at the forefront of timber frame innovation, in 2016 Cygnum designed, manufactured and installed the timber frame for the UK’s Greenest Building, The Enterprise Centre at the UEA. Our project was honoured at the Structural Timber Awards with 5 major awards, including Best Low Energy Project and Best Use of Timber.

In 2018 we doubled the size of our manufacturing plant and invested in highly automated CNC equipment. This has allowed us to meet the growing demand from contractors and developers to build sustainable large-scale housing projects. We are now the most advanced timber frame manufacturing facility in Ireland, currently delivering housing units to numerous large-scale developments and social housing projects.
Our award-winning in-house design team and experienced installation crews guarantee our timber frame structures are built with precision, speed and accuracy.

Cygnum’s flagship social housing development of 105 ultra-low-energy homes for Norwich City Council, Goldsmith Street won the coveted RIBA Stirling Prize 2019. It is the first social housing scheme to be shortlisted and win the award.
We have commenced work on the next phase of expansion which will bring the manufacturing facility up to 100,000 sq.ft and house additional digitally driven CNC equipment.
The future is bright for offsite construction and for Cygnum. We have delivered circa 10,000 houses and numerous award-winning schools and commercial projects. With Ireland facing housing shortages along with a trade skills shortage, the spotlight is on MMC (Modern Methods of Construction) to resolve both issues
