The Midlands Prison Portlaoise required an extension for which Noel Lawler Consulting Engineers won the Design and Build Contract. Together with Laing O’ Rourke, NLCE designed Block C of the Prison, taking into account the connecting power supplies. This extension catered for approximately 145 inmates and was valued at €26 million.
In addition to design, the NLCE team also committed to providing Mechanical and Electrical Services to the building including the installation of a Building Management System to monitor building services such as lighting and heating, a day lighting design package, a water treatment system and heat recovery system. NLCE also worked closely with Laing O'Rourke on Castlerea Prison in Co. Roscommon.
