About our Sponsors:
Edward Capital were established some thirty years ago. Edward is an Irish property development and investment company with diverse interests that also include substantial stakes in the hospitality, retail, residential, office and construction industry.
Since its foundation in 1982 the group has gained a diverse and structured experience in the industry, it is a skill set that encompasses deal origination, planning, construction and development management, asset management, community engagement and sales. A particular focus on medium and large scale projects of mixed-use led urban regeneration has meant that we have had a transformative and positive impact on the landscape of several Irish towns and cities. Flair, originality and style have become bywords for the group.
Our portfolio has grown organically to encompass distinct yet complimentary pillars: residential, retail & commercial development, investment, hospitality & leisure and finally, construction.
Bonham Quay is a mixed use project comprising 32,175 sqm of Grade A office space, 2,000 sqm of retail and restaurant space. The office development is designed as four office blocks alongside two public squares that all connect via landscape bridges.
Designed to accommodate a working community of 2,600, we included additional amenities into the development such as a cultural arts facility and a commuter and fitness centre. Located on an industrial site, overlooking Galway Docks, our extensive use of glazing allows for maximum access to views.
With a zero carbon target set for the development, environmental performance is key, especially when built on a contaminated urban site.
