The Irish Times Businessperson of the Month: Kevin Lagan
His newest venture FastHouse agrees deal for 200 homes in Dublin
Lagan’s newest venture, FastHouse, agreed a series of deals last month for more than 200 homes in Dublin, helping it build up a sales pipeline of more than €22 million. Founded in 2015, the company specialises in rapid-build homes and has been picking up speed with a series of high-profile projects.
It recently completed 466 holiday homes for the Center Parcs resort in Co Longford in just 34 weeks, with its factory producing five houses a day at that time. The Limavady-based company has also built holiday lodges for the Killyhevlin Lakeside Hotel in Enniskillen, Co Fermanagh.
A significant sales pipeline has prompted the company to invest in a fourth production line.
Lagan is also busy expanding his housebuilding business, which he retained following the sale of Lagan Group for €526 million in April 2018.
But it is FastHouse that is enjoying high profile success having recently won a series of new housing contracts. The company is currently installing some of its units, built offsite, in Dublin, Kildare, Cork and Offaly as well as on a number of sites in Britain and Northern Ireland.
