This project formed part of the Government’s €1 billion Rural Regeneration and Development initiative – brought about to bring new energy to Ireland’s smaller towns and villages. The Multi-Service Innovation Centre features a Business Hub on the ground floor – comprising hot desks with business broadband, incubation units for smaller businesses, meeting rooms, training rooms and audio visual facilities. The first floor is occupied by the North-West Clare Family Resource Centre.
The existing ground floor was changed from a retail unit, to office accommodation. There were many alterations carried out and additions made to the existing building – including amending the internal layout throughout.
To provide additional access to the first floor unit (Family Resource Centre), a new 2-storey entrance lift was built to the rear of the building. Alterations were made to the existing onsite car park while associated signage was also installed.
To support the new development, two new additional connections to the public water mains were added. Jada Construction also provided all ancillary site works.
