Wicklow’s social housing scheme achieves highest green home certification.
Kilbride Court social housing development in Bray, designed by COADY Architects and delivered on behalf of Wicklow County Council, is the first multi-unit development to be awarded the Home Performance Index Gold Certification in Ireland. The HPI was developed by the Irish Green Building Council as the first comprehensive sustainability certification for new Irish homes.
