Lahinch Leisure Centre Deep Retrofit Project

The Lahinch Leisure Centre retrofit journey began in September 2018 when the agency’s building services team completed an energy audit to understand how much energy the building was using and pinpoint necessary works to upgrade the facility. 

At this stage, the Leisure Centre had an E BER (Building Energy Rating). The building, part of which was constructed in 1960, had inefficient lighting and was poorly insulated with single glazed windows. Today, Lahinch Leisure Centre has a BER A3 Energy Rating and has NZEB (Near Zero Energy Building) status. Read the full story here.
