Hoarding At Dulux Site

Notice of Dublin City Council displayed along the perimeter of the site on Davitt Road

Brian Durkan Development Ltd have been issued their Hoarding Licence from Dublin City Council. J. Ryan Demolition and Construction have commenced erecting the hoarding on Monday, 9th December, 2019 along the perimeter of the site on Galtymore Road. Unfortunately, this temporarily shortens the width of the current foot path from Davitt House to meet residential property along Galtymore Road. The hoarding will also be put in place along the perimeter of the site on Davitt Road.

Dampening Down the Dust

Demolition of West Side of the Dulux Factory

The demolition of the site commenced on the 11th November, 2019 and has well progressed within a few weeks. However, resident’s concerns about the delays of constructing hoarding around the perimeter is currently being addressed with the developer.

All demolition is currently being pulled inwards and the perimeter walls will be the last to be tackled. As the weather is currently damp, this has minimised the spread of dust into the air. Dust suppression is being used on site to keep dust at bay and is in line with good practice and guidelines. Photos of dust minimisation can be viewed here.

From Dulux to The Davitt

The old Dulux Paints factory in Drimnagh on Dublin’s southside.

The demolition and excavation of the Old Dulux Paint Factory has commenced. The Drimnagh Residents’ Community Group were invited to a meeting by Mr Anthony Durkan at the Red Cow Moran’s Hotel on Thursday, 7th November, 2019 to discuss the future development of the site. This was an introductory meeting and it has been agreed that further meetings will take place every six weeks to discuss ongoing issues or concerns that residents may have.

Demolition of the factory commenced on Monday, 11th November, 2019 and is well underway. Most of the work will be sub-contracted and the actual development will take two years i.e, from demolition to building completion.

The development will be known as Davitt Lock. However, it is currently being marketed as The Davitt.
