The new headquarters for Roscommon County Council is commencing on site in February. Stewarts have been appointed as the main contractor. Located in Roscommon town, the 6,700m2 development will involve the construction of office accommodation, new council chambers and facilities for elected members.
The Works involve the retention and integration into the design of fragments of existing stone walls of a 19th century jail. In addition, the Works involves works to a Protected Structure, the Courthouse, including the partial demolition of a 1960's annexe and the limited-refurbishment of the original courthouse structure. Works will also involve working within a 'live' work environment (live council offices and active law courts) where construction work will take place in close proximity with members of the public. The Works will also include the coordination of the phased decanting of council staff from existing accommodation on the site. Ancillary works will include the design and construction of adjoining surface car parking.
PUNCH are working with ABK Architects and Homan O’Brien M&E Engineers on the design of this prestigious development.
