This development consisted of refurbishment and alterations to the existing buildings of Bay 135 and 137 at Shannon Free Zone, Shannon Airport, Co. Clare. The original buildings consist of a reinforced concrete frame with prestressed large-span rafters and masonry infill walls. The alterations to both Bays 135 and 137 involve extensive refurbishment to the elevations with new cladding and openings to facilitate the new layout.
A new 15m² floor area was constructed at Bay 135 and the subdivision into 3 advanced manufacturing units, consisting of a single-storey industrial floor with an ancillary office area. Works to Bay 137 involved the subdivision into 4 Business Technology and Innovation units.
Other works included alterations to the existing layout with a new access road to serve Bay 135 units, with the provision of 25 new car parking spaces including accessible spaces, set down areas with vehicular & HGV access points to the perimeter of the site, secure bicycle parking spaces, refuse stores with roof level and site level external service areas.
