The Ballyroan project consisted of the construction of 2 separate single storey buildings including a Community Centre, the demolition/new build & refurbishment of a Pastoral Centre for the Ballyroan community.

The project included the following:

  • The Pastoral & Community buildings were constructed in a traditional blockwork, Structural Steel, Eco Joist build, featuring super insulated floor, wall & roof construction.
  • All roof construction is to a Ruberoid specification for the purposes of maximising the flat roof life span & minimising the maintenance requirements during that life.
  • The building shell was constructed to the highest standard to achieve the maximum air tightness level of 3 in its completed state. Also the building was designed with unusually large areas of glazing set out in a Billings specification to achieve the required BER & U value requirements.
  • Both buildings included high specification internal finishes including the installation of stone flooring & cladding, Dorma folding screens, glass toilet & shower cubicle systems, folding wall finishes, all to the original conceptual lines & visual appearances set out by the project Architect.
  • Demolition works were undertaken in relation to the Community Centre with new extension works of 500m².
  • The Pastoral Centre works included associated site works with landscaping.
