Lawler Sustainability worked with Croke Park to assess the stadium’s mechanical and electrical systems and bring them up to modern health and safety, and efficiency standards.
Our team discovered that some of the boiler and plant rooms had not been audited in quite some time and therefore, the machinery and equipment were due a significant upgrade.
Due to the age and life expectancy of some of the systems, our team made some recommendations for immediate upgrades so as to ensure the health and safety of the public.
Our team also advised Croke Park on the replacement of the passenger lift in the Cusack Stand. This passenger lift had not been upgraded in many years and thus, required close attention.
We also conducted an analysis of Croke Park’s energy bills and highlighted key opportunities for energy savings.
We discovered that there was significant scope for energy savings in the Hogan Stand area in particular and consequently made a number of recommendations.
For example, a large generator that was being replaced every ten years could be replaced with a standby generator that uses significantly less energy and only requires replacing every thirty years to maintain efficiency.
