Energy Grant Consultancy

Lawler Sustainability has worked with Portarlington Leisure Centre since 2011.

Our agreement began with a comprehensive energy audit of the centre to identify areas of improvement.

We then provided our expert SEAI grant consultancy services and guided Laois County Council in successfully securing government funding through various energy grants.

These grants allowed us to address the building performance issues and opportunities discovered by the initial energy audit.


Energy Upgrades

Under our guidance, Portarlington Leisure Centre has completed almost €300,000 worth of energy upgrades since 2011.

These energy upgrades include:

  • Boiler replacement and domestic hot water system reconfiguration
  • Pool temperature control integration with a Building Management System (BMS)
  • Pool water quality and turnover improved with the  installation of a UV disinfection system
  • Pool pump energy consumption and speed control

And many more!

All of us at Lawler Sustainability were delighted to hear that Portarlington Leisure Centre had won Best Leisure Centre in Ireland at the National Quality Standards Awards 2019 (NQSA). 

The NQSA is awarded to facilities that meet the operational standards for leisure and fitness facilities across 250 quality-based criteria.
