New report finds constructions costs are cheaper in the North West

A new report being published today has found that the North West  is the cheapest part of the country to build a new house.


The Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland is today launching ‘The Real Costs of New Housing Delivery’ at its annual national conference in Crooke Park.



The publication says seven regions including Dublin are coming under scrutiny when it comes to the real cost of a new home.



The report will show the total cost of delivering an average ‘3 bed semi’ in Ireland this year.


The Society’s Micheál Mahon says it costs 354 thousand euro to construct such a dwelling locally.
