This 192-bedroom hotel is currently being designed for upgrade to modern standards on a phased basis, and Metec are also part of the Masterplan Team to significantly extend the hotel by demolishing the existing ballroom wing and construction of a flexible Multi-Use Area with bedroom wing above. The services are in place since 1988 and have reached the end of their expected life. The capacity will increase to 280 bedrooms in a planned €45m upgrade, for which planning has been secured.
Designing the upgrade of all services in a live 5 Star hotel provides many challenges, from working hours to phasing to minimise or eliminate disruption to paying clients. Delivering a standard of finish not seen in many projects in Ireland.

Full upgrade of TV & Comms and Primary Electrical Services throughout the hotel. VRF Fan Coil systems added to each bedroom, replacing current 4-pipe system.
