This project involved the demolition of an existing town centre Garda Station and the construction,
on a footprint site of a new architecturally significant building with a Gross Floor Area of 11,500 sq.ft.
A large proportion of the central core of the building was finished in architectural concrete included
in a self finished spiral concrete staircase.
All internal joinery including oak spiral ballustrading, reception areas and built in furniture was provided
and installed by Murnane & O’Shea.
Due to the use of architectural concrete throughout, all services were cast into the structure to give
a ‘finished’ feel to all areas within the building.
The roof was made up of standing seam copper and zinc. Front façade included bush hammered
granite cut to a curved profile.
All external joinery was oak provided directly by the Murnane & O’Shea joinery works.
