Weekly Irish property market news and insights – for the industry, by the industry  

Before we get stuck into the general property news of the week, below are the local and international stories that might be of particular interest:

  • Staff at An Bord Pleanála have been told the organisation’s name change will happen within the next few weeks, in a move likely to anger workers at the beleaguered planning body –  An Coimisiún Pleanála https://www.irishexaminer.com/news/arid-41265403.html

If you missed last week’s round-up, you can catch up here: https://propertydistrict.ie/sunday-roundup/

As always, you might let me know if I have missed out on any relevant property news by emailing  carol@propertydistrict.ie.

(Apologies in advance for any typos, it’s difficult to get good help on a Sunday. Also, I use voice to text dictation so just sound out anything that really doesn’t make sense in a strong rural accent and that should help!)

#BreakingGround

On #BreakingGround host Carol Tallon is joined by Rob Fox, CEO of Supplyo to talk about construction technology trends and how technology can help contractors identify, recruit and build relationships with their supply chain in a seamless way. Learn more about Supplyo here- https://www.supplyo.io/

Rob also breaks down what a technology stack looks like for the typical construction contractor – which might be helpful for identifying gaps – and shows how the best tech solutions integrate for optimal efficiency. Critically, he also shares insights into new ESG reporting obligations coming down the track for construction firms – is the industry ready for these?
