Case Study: Mount Saint Annes
In 2010, Petra was invited to tender for the management of Mount Saint Anne’s, Milltown, Dublin 6. Built by Park Developments, this upmarket mixed-use development comprises 628 units, including 10 commercial. It has quickly become one of South Dublin city’s most sought after and award-winning properties. Following a lengthy tendering process, Petra Management was engaged by the board.
Since our appointment as the managing agent for Mount Saint Annes, Petra has made substantial technical, administrative and aesthetic improvements to the property. One simple but important task we have undertaken here is the revitalisation of a large, signature water feature. We changed the water pump from a three-phase to the latest ECO single-phase technology. Not only is this pump more reliable, but it has also substantially reduced the running cost. Health and safety issues surrounding this fountain were highlighted during this time and have been overcome by the planting of boundary hedges.
Furthermore, owners and residents are very pleased with the improved level of maintenance and presentation of the common area landscaping. These services have been assigned to well-established contractors with a good track record and at a cost which is significantly more competitive than the previous agent. This has led to a decrease in upkeep costs without any reduction in the quality of the services provided
