Portlaoise Prison exterior 2.jpg

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.
