As the need for social housing provision grows, awarding agencies are looking to public private partnership (PPP) frameworks.

Ireland’s Social Housing Bundle 1 encompasses the financing, design, construction and maintenance of six social housing sites in Dublin over a 27 year concession.


Following Macquarie Capital’s previous sponsor role of the Grangegorman tertiary education PPP, we acted as sole financial adviser and sponsor to Comhar Housing, a consortium comprising Macquarie Capital, Sisk, Choice Housing and Oaklee Housing.

The group was appointed preferred tenderer and reached financial close in March 2019, becoming Ireland’s first social housing PPP project.


Social House Bundle 1 marks a significant response to the social housing needs of the Irish market, providing the tenants and their families with a basis for sustainable communities into the future.
