Varming Consulting Engineers were recently appointed by NUI Galway as Building Services Engineers associated with the Design and Site Monitoring, including Building Regulations Certification (BCAR) for the New Water Sports Facility.
The project consists of a Clubhouse and a Boathouse, together with associated external storage, parking, circulation and river access areas.
The Clubhouse will contain specialist meeting facilities, office space, storage areas, gym room, first aid room, drying room and changing & welfare facilities. The Boathouse will contain storage facilities for rowing, kayak, surf, and windsurfing clubs. Maintenance, workshop and general storage spaces will also be included.
A particular feature of this facility will be the need to ensure that the requirements of the various groupings of people using the facility (children, adults, students, families, the aged, people with disabilities etc) are catered for.
Design must be done in such a way as to be inviting and as customer friendly as possible for users and members of the public who would not necessarily be familiar with Universities or such institutions.
The Project design is due to commence in the early 2015 and continues our ongoing successful relationship with NUI Galway, and it compliments our existing third level educational facility experience.
