Our non residential team have recently completed the detailed design phase of the Lahinch Seaworld Energy Efficiency upgrade. This promises to be a very exciting project and involves upgrading the leisure centre to an A rated facility. Energy efficiency measures proposed include biomass heating, geothermal heating/cooling, new high efficiency AHUs, LED lighting, building fabric upgrades, solar photovoltaics and electric vehicle charge points. The Building Services team at the Tipperary Energy Agency were delighted to be part of the winning Integrated Design Team for this design work. Tipperary Energy Agency not only brought their excellent skill set from a Building Services design capacity, but also their ability to analyse the building from a Non Domestic BER perspective to design to an A rated standard. They also brought the ability to apply for funding through SEAI Better Energy Communities (BEC) and Support for the Supply of Renewable Heat (SSRH) – both of which are currently at evaluation stage. This tender associated with the works for this project is currently published on Etenders.
