Kilsaran International collaborated with JJ Rhatigan & Company and the Office of Public Works (OPW) Architectural Services Team to supply 2,400 square meters of paving and 300m of kerbing for the new Western Region Garda Headquarters in Renmore, Galway, which was officially opened by Minister Flanagan in July 2018.
For the hard landscaping of this scheme, Mellifont Charcoal three size mix paving blocks along with Silver Granite Tara kerb were chosen from Kilsaran’s wide range of colours, sizes, and textures, to complement the building, which was clad in limestone and granite. The pedestrian entrance and pathways consisted of a 60mm depth, and the car park area, which is subject to traffic loading, consisted of an 80mm depth. The paving was all set with our Streetscape System of High Strengh Bedding Concrete, Priming Slurry and Rapid Set Jointing Mortar.
Kilsaran’s DuraRend Classic System was used on parts of the building facade with a silicone render finish.
The Garda Headquarters in Galway is one of six being constructed in Ireland. Kilsaran were also the supplier of paving for the Garda Headquarters in Wexford, which was completed in September 2017.
