Stewart Construction projects
A core expertise in green building and modern methods of construction (MMC) drives the contractor’s sustainability agenda to strengthen building performance at all stages of the life cycle. The company was a recent winner at the Irish Construction Excellence Awards 2023 for ‘Project of the Year’ for the iconic LEED Gold ‘Central Plaza’ project on Dame St, Dublin. The project is one of the largest redevelopment projects Dublin city centre has seen, and the reimagining of the city centre property to a new space is in line with Project Ireland 2040. The success of the project has been all about applying new thinking and modern design and construction to redefine and sustain this building to ensure it remains both relevant and valued well into the future. Retaining the original structure and façade of the building resulted in a saving of 10,000 tonnes of carbon on this LEED Gold Building.
To support its ‘Carbon Roadmap to 2030’, Stewart Construction continues to embrace sustainable construction supported by automated technologies and an increased focus on modern methods of construction. Examples include; the off-site fabrication of pods for hotel projects and the off-site fabrication of plantrooms for medtech clients.
Stewart Construction is a Deloitte ‘Gold Standard Best Managed Company’.
