Center Parcs is a €233m development in Co. Longford with onsite accommodation for 2,500 people. This massive scale project on the 395-acre site is a new tourist village with 466 Scandinavian style lodges and 30 lake view apartments. It has the largest waterpark in Ireland as well as hundreds of indoor and outdoor activities.
NLCE were appointed as mechanical and electrical design engineers at the developed design stage. This project was delivered entirely through BIM which aided the ambitious programme, and during the early design stage our teams attended weekly design team workshops.
The resulting mechanical and electrical systems included 42 air handing units (AHUs), 2 megawatts of boiler capacity for 3no. swimming pools, 3 CHP units (totalling 800kW thermal load which have the capacity to offset 600 tonnes of C02 annually), 10 different thermal experiences in the 5-Star Aqua Sana, a bowling alley, bars, themed restaurants, 466 lodges and 30 apartments.
During the construction phase of the project we provided ancillary certification for building control which involved issuing weekly observation reports for BCAR process. We also issued snag reports to contractors in pre-agreed stages allowing for snag free handover to the client.
