Mica Action Group says new report gives ‘platform to work with’

A member of the Mica Action Group says the recently published ‘Construction Costs for the Defective Concrete Blocks Grant Scheme’ is to be, overall, welcomed.

Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland has recommended, based on material costs this year, an average rebuild cost of between €145 to €167 per square foot depending the house type.

The Minister for Housing, Darragh O’Brien, has today issued the final call for people across Sligo, Leitrim and Donegal to share their experiences of defects in apartments and duplexes in their respective counties.

The information is sought by the Independent Working Group with the closing date of March 14th.

Michael Doherty, spokesperson with the Mica Action Group said in a Facebook video that the report gives homeowners a ‘platform to work with’ but some questions still need to be answered.
