JJ Rhatigan project portfolio

JJ Rhatigan has a range of major projects, both completed and currently underway.

The end of 2022 saw the company complete McGarrell Reilly’s exceptional Charlemont Square development, a transformative regeneration project in the heart of Dublin 2. This award-winning mixed-use development has achieved placemaking excellence with over 260 homes, artfully designed public realm areas and office accommodation, almost half of which is occupied by anchor tenant Amazon.

JJ Rhatigan also recently handed over this €35m Technology, Society and Innovation (TSI) Building for Maynooth University, declared “a poster child in terms of programme, quality and coordination”.

Projects currently underway in Dublin include Trinity College Dublin’s E3 Learning Foundry, a state-of-the-art building at the eastern end of the Trinity College Dublin campus in Dublin 2 and a much-needed housing project for South Dublin County Council in Tallaght, delivering 133 homes by mid-2024.

Also progressing well is the Higher Education Bundle 1 PPP, which focuses on STEM, ICT, Engineering and Life Sciences facilities at six technological universities in various locations around Ireland. When completed, these facilities will provide for 5,147 additional student places.

Over the coming months, JJ Rhatigan will continue to work on Phase 2 Student Accommodation in Galway University; four Design & Build schools for the Department of Education across Limerick and Cork; as well as mixed-use redevelopments in Maidenhead, Guildford and Three Kings Mayfair, London.
