“This acquisition will give us first mover advantage to deliver a significant number of residential units in Dublin’s North Docks where there is exciting regeneration potential. This acquisition demonstrates our ability to deploy the equity proceeds from our IPO in a timely fashion.
Over the course of the past eight weeks we have increased our contracted employee headcount from 85 at the time of IPO to 116 as we have built out our corporate and operational capabilities and are now active on five construction sites, rising to seven during Q1 2018. We are on course to become a residential delivery platform of scale and look forward to announcing additional site acquisitions in 2018.”
