The community group had secured planning permission and €500k Rural Development Programme (RDP) funding for a community centre and pitch. The brief was to tender and construct the entire project in under 12 months in order to meet RDP deadlines.
Corex procured and appointed the design team, developed the design, carried out value engineering to meet the project budget, tendered and appointed the contractor and completed the project within the specified programme. The site conditions were very challenging due to its boggy nature. The building is constructed on a raft foundation. It is a testament to the field design that an all-weather pitch was developed on this site.
