Burren Community Hall, Burren
Client: Burren Vision
Killowen Contracts Ltd were appointed to undertake Phase 1 construction of Burren Community Hall - a 10,000 sqft single storey building providing a first-class hub for the local community. The project involved the demolition of the existing building and construction of a new facility with studio space, offices, kitchen and changing facilities, as well as all external siteworks and specialist services.
The contract was awarded in early 2018 and we worked with the client to determine a programme of work suiting their needs and incorporating sectional completion. Throughout the build we looked to maximise sustainable performance through reuse of materials, recycling and a reduction of waste to landfill.
Killowen Contracts Ltd promoted best practice and community integration through local employment and partnership with the local primary school, Carrick PS, in arranging construction presentations for children encompassing Health & Safety, site visits and by sponsorship of current community groups where possible.
