NEW â‚¬15M LIMERICK GREYHOUND STADIUM ON SITE (Hamilton Architects)
The construction of a new â‚¬15 million â€˜Flagshipâ€™ greyhound stadium has just started on site (May 2009) and involves the relocation of the existing racing facilities to a 12 acre green-field site on the outskirts of Limerick.
Strategically linked to the new 15,000 sqft Headquarter Offices of the Irish Greyhound Board, the new stadium is envisaged to become the Boardâ€™s â€˜Flagshipâ€™ stadium.
With almost 2,000 spectators located over four storeys the stadium has been designed so that all levels are directly interconnected thus allowing the bustling atmosphere to permeate all levels.
Large double height spaces have been strategically located to provide good vantage points for â€˜big-screenâ€™ viewing and provide good connectivity, orientation and legibility throughout entire building.
The project is due for completion in June 2010.
I see that they have been on site since February.
