We have the skills needed to take our Oaklee led construction projects from the initial feasibility and concept design stages to planning submission, construction coordination & delivery, through to final delivery and ultimately hand-over to our Property Services team.

Where we are acquiring turnkey schemes, we have the capability to oversee the acquisition programme through to delivery. We are proud of our ability to efficiently manage and coordinate scheme completions so there is seamless handover to our housing department.

What we're looking for

Development Land for Oaklee Development (Design & Build)

Oakee housing is always seeking to identify suitable sites for development. We have extensive experience in procuring and appointing consultants and contractors through our own scheme delivery, this is carried out through the Capital Works Management Framework. We are particularly interested in sites, all over Ireland, with access to local infrastructure, with or without permission, that are suited to the development of social housing schemes.

Turnkey/ Acquisition

Oaklee Housing has a proven track record in the sourcing of turnkey developments through private developers. With access to preferential lending rates, our funding solutions offer financial assurance to developers from the outset.  We are interested in acquiring good quality, turnkey schemes that meet our design criteria, details of which can be accessed here [insert hyperlink]

Design and Build

Oaklee Housing is proud of the schemes we have delivered over the past 21 years.

Our design and build approach begins with an initial procurement process which results in the crafting of a development agreement between parties.

As part of this development agreement, we finance the design and build of the project, in line with our design guidelines.

Our developer led projects are delivered in various stages, the first involving the procurement of the site by Oaklee Housing with the remaining stages focused on key milestones of the build process.

If you are a developer or architect looking to collaborate with an AHB who can provide access to funds to design, build and deliver your social housing scheme, please get in touch with the Oaklee Housing development team today on development@oakleehousing.ie or call us on 01 4002649.
