Quintain Ireland’s headcount now stands at 22, following their launch in late 2019 and there are plans to increase that headcount to 30 by the end of 2020 as the company progresses the delivery of housing projects around Dublin. Rachel Hoy, Vivian Marques and Ross Reale have also recently joined the company in in development, sales and marketing and finance roles respectively.
Eddie Byrne, Managing Partner of Quintain Ireland, said:
“We’re very pleased to welcome our five new hires to Quintain Ireland at a time which we are making significant progress on our plans to deliver over 9,000 new homes in Ireland. Sharon and Claire bring significant in-house legal and development management expertise to the team.
When we set up the business last year we were committed to ensuring diversity in our workforce in all its forms. We’re pleased to have a 50/50 gender split at Quintain, which unfortunately is rare in the construction and development sector. It is our aim to further grow our headcount in 2020 as we ramp up the delivery of residential and commercial space in the Dublin area.”
Quintain has recently received planning permission to construct 245 new homes at Tandy’s Lane in Lucan, part of the Adamstown’s Strategic Development Zone. The development will include 213 houses, 16 duplexes and 15 apartments, and is close to Quintain’s Somerton development where the first phase is complete.
Quintain launched in Ireland in November 2019 with plans to develop 9,000 new homes and 600,000 sq.ft. of commercial space in the Greater Dublin area. The company’s existing land portfolio covers 460 acres of prime assets in Ireland at Adamstown, Clonburris, Portmarnock, and Cherrywood, and when developed will make Quintain the third largest residential developer in the country.
Quintain Ireland’s parent company Quintain Limited is a vertically integrated developer, operator and owner of residential and mixed-use assets; best known for the ongoing transformation of Wembley Park in north London.
