Carey Building Contractors are the Main Contractors undertaking the construction of the Connemara Visitor’s Centre at Pearse Cottage, Co Galway.
Construction began in December 2015, next to the existing Pearse’s Cottage in Rosmuc, Co Galway.
The Project consists of the construction of a single-storey Visitor Building of approximately 500sq.m incorporating reception, exhibition, educational, meeting and café areas and ancillary facilities.
The first phase included the excavation of the site to form a level for the erection of a Steel frame construction with associated pre-cast slab installation.
It includes a walkway linking the Visitor Centre to a Woodland Pavilion Building and Pearse Cottage and a semi-enclosed Woodland Pavilion Building associated with the walkway.
There will be a new site access and car parking areas upon completion, which is expected in September 2016.
The site is located in Rosmuc, on the West Galway coast in Connemara and the terrain is made up of peat and rock. It is also situated beside a lake so appropriate measures must be incorporated to protect the lake during the construction phase and in the operation of the facility.
