Lawler Sustainability was selected as the M&E design consultant for the development of Center Parcs in Longford.
Continuous Assessment and Maintenance
A project of this magnitude requires stringent, continuous assessment of the Building Energy Ratings (BERs) and Part L Compliance before it can be awarded its final certification at handover.
The brief for this project included the provision of BER Certification for Subtropical Swimming Paradise, Restaurants, Retail Units, Aqua Sana Spa, and Offices / Commercial Area.
Computational Fluid Dynamics
One of the most interesting aspects of this project was the completion of a Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) assessment of the resort’s large indoor pool area.
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) models detail airflow within a space and are an excellent tool for predicting HVAC performance.
The outcome of this assessment helped improve air movement within Ireland’s largest pool hall which has contributed to better occupant comfort and plant health without compromising on energy targets.
