Challenge: A cost and time effective alternative to welded copper piping systems, plus reliable drainage, for 480 apartments
Two Oaks is a significant housing development comprising 590 apartments and duplexes, along with communal leisure facilities and retail, in Knocklyon, Dublin.
The project started in October 2021 and is due to be completed by March 2023, comprising 480 build-to-rent dwellings and a further 110 for private sale. Tasked with installing the water and drainage systems for the 480 build-to-rent apartments, mechanical engineering firm Gaffney Mechanical sought a cost and time-effective alternative to welded copper piping systems. They decided to use a press fit system and opted for Geberit Mapress.
