‘Designing future homes for Private Rented Sector’ by Patrick O Toole
12. 3. 2020
"Changes to the world and local economies over the past two decades has seen a dramatic shift in the global residential market. Even with post-Celtic Tiger funding models in place, the Irish residential market has not been unaffected by this, and the push to higher housing costs is seeing a fundamental change to how we now live, and indeed, how we expect to live in the future."

“Meitheal were an outstanding partner on this build. Luke and his team worked with us to ensure our briefs were fully met, both on time and financially, and calmly overcame any build issues that cropped up. The hotel operated as normal during the build which demonstrated their understanding of how our business works and our important operational needs”
Graham Fitzgerald, General Manager,
“The team at Meitheal went above and beyond throughout the project with such willingness and professionalism, and for that and everything else, we are truly grateful. ”
Aileen O'Neill, CEO,
“Meitheal have undertaken various projects for me personally, and for partners in the practice. We find Meitheal to be an exceptional professional service provider, always bringing creative design skill and a professional approach to executing and administering contracts and contractors. We continue to engage with them and are happy to recommend them.”
Cian Beecher, Partner,
“The planning of a new community of 300 homes and community services was a large challenge. We faced many competing agendas – the local community, the local authority, the delivery of LIHAF infrastructure, archaeology and heritage issues. The housing team at Meitheal took charge of the process, established clear milestones and targets and secured an excellent planning approval. Clear communication is a strength of theirs and the fact that all stakeholders were engaged with and we avoided an appeal to An Bord Pleanala is to the Architect’s credit.”
“Our finished medical centre is flooded with natural light, creating a wonderful ambience for patients and staff alike. Pat used the available space to great effect, with many wonderful subtle design features, which ensures the building works for patients and staff.”
Dr. Diarmuid Quinlan,
“It’s a long-standing relationship - people who get it for the long term, people who are at the other end of the phone, who you’ve built a relationship out of trust. That to me, is key to what’s required, and it comes in spades with the guys in Meitheal - That’s my experience.”
“Luke Hickson is one of the best and most talented designers that I have met. I greatly enjoy working with him and I know that he will bring the passion and flair that he demonstrated with me to his future projects and endeavours.”
“We have over 600 stores nationwide, no two alike. Each site and brief brings its own challenges, opportunities, complexities and personalities. Our experience of Patrick and his team is that they bring skillful design solutions and implement them cleverly, cognisant of each project’s unique circumstances. In retail every hour is precious. Meitheal’s turnaround of information and response times are exceptional, and it is apparent that they resource a diverse in-house skill base. Colleagues in our strategic planning department speak highly of Meitheal’s inputs on complex planning and legal questions.”
Joseph LeBlanc, Regional Development Manager,
“Design has always been a big thing for me — I know what I like. Luke Hickson and Pat O Toole of Meitheal have been absolutely brilliant, they really get what I want.”
