An Garrán – Social Housing project

An Garrán Social Housing project


Unilin Insulation have partnered with Waterford City & County Council in delivering An Garrán. Our ECO360 range of insulation products for walls and floors helped achieve A-Rated, energy efficient new builds for Waterford City County Council’s social housing development in Tramore.

The project comprised of 50 units of housing with a mix of one, two and three-bedroom accommodation with the addition of accessible housing for disabled access.


Designed by EML Architects, the project was constructed by local firm Nevin Construction and accommodates over 105 residents. The extensive new 50-unit residential project was designed to tie into the first phase of the build with common materials, architecture and landscape.

Residents who already reside in An Garrán in Phase One Housing one housing were previously nominated in the Urban Neighbourhood category in the All-Ireland IPB Pride of Place Awards in 2023. As Silver medallists in the category, An Garrán was recognised for its community spirit nurturing a safe, inclusive and secure place for families to live.


In 2021, Waterford City became Ireland’s first Carbon Neutral City. Working in partnership with SETU, the Chambers, the HSE, Large Employers and the general public, the WCCC continue their efforts to reach the Carbon Neutral goal. Waterford City and County Council adopted its Climate Action Plan in February 2024. The plan works to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from operations and in the services provided to the people of Waterford. The Climate Action Plan was developed adhering to all environmental standards. A Strategic Environmental Assessment and a Natura Impact Report.
