Primary Care Centre Projects Opportunities

In this edition I am pleased to provide you with an insight into the opportunities resulting in an increase in the number of Primary Care Centre projects. My analysis looks at the volume of Primary Care Centres that are currenly at plans granted or tender stage and the split in funding.

Funding No of Project Average Cost per project Total Expenditure
Private 92 €1.14m €105
Public 16 €4.8m €77m
PPP 14 €5.8m €81m
Total 122 €2.2m €263m

Recent CIS Research illustrates that new projects at granted and tender stage within the Medical sector have remained consistent since the start of the year. The analysis below focuses on the period Jan 1st to Oct 1st. The 14 PPP Projects are part of the National Development Finance Agency and the average construction cost of these projects is €5.8m. In addition the NDFA have stated that the overall budget for the 14 PPP project scheme is €115m.

To date in 2014 the total value of granted schemes exceeds €263m with the largest approved projects being €105m in the private sector. The average value of each granted scheme equates to just under €2.2m. Assuming each of these schemes reaches on-site phase the sector would appear to be lucrative for contractors and suppliers.

11/09/2014 - Residential Recovery

It has been well documented by the ESRI medium term review that "around 10,000 - 12,000 new houses are needed per year up to 2015 and that bewteen 20,000 - 25,000 new houses are needed from 2016 onwards"

According to research carried out by CIS over the past 4 quarters the Residential sector appears to be showing some signs of slow recovery.  During this period over 14,500 schemes have been approved which covers Self-Build, domestic extensions and multi-unit developments.  The table and graph below represent the volumes of schemes which have received full planning permission granted during this period, the numbers referenced represent volumes of schemes and not units.

  Republic of Ireland Northern Ireland Total
Schemes (Multi-Unit) 939 584 1523
Extensions 4327 2915 7242
Self-Build 3436 2355 5791

*Volumes of granted schemes by region

Domestic extensions represent 50% of granted residential schemes over past 12 months.

Residential Graph

*Granted residential by type

To complement our analysis we have studied the numbers of projects previously placed on-hold and are now approved for extension of duration - our findings show that approx 50% of extension of durations granted year-to-date are within the residential construction sector and 26 multi-unit schemes have progressed beyond this to on-site construction phase.  Perhaps this is an early indicator of a revival for the housing sector.

05/08/2014 - Top Structural Engineers

According to CIS Research Structural Engineers have been linked to over 220 major projects in Ireland over the past 12 months.  The largest of these projects is the €3bn Heuston Station to Docklands Dart Interconnector Tunnel - although this scheme has stalled since it was granted permission in 2011, recent reports of compulsory purchase orders which have been sent to homeowners and businesses along the proposed route may signifying a re-ignition of the project. A decision is expected to be made in 2015 on the future of the project and if it will proceed. Outside of the proposed interconnector tunnel the average construction value of a project involving a structural engineer over the past year equates to €9.3 million.

The table below shows top Structural Engineering firms by volume of associated projects researched by CIS over the past 12 months.
