Donegal Garda Station Shortlisted for ACEI Awards

21 April 2022

Varming Consulting Engineers are delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted for the 2022 Association of Consulting Engineers of Ireland “Mechanical & Electrical – Small project” for the Donegal Garda Station refurbishment and extension. 

The Refurbishment and Extension to Donegal Town Garda Station, winner of RIAI awards for both the Cultural/Public Buildings and Sustainability categories in 2021, forms part of the Government’s ‘2016-2021 Garda Capital Plan’ and was a key milestone for the plan at handover stage.  The original early 20th Century building consisted of a public office, interview room and custody suite on the ground floor, with offices, welfare facilities and canteen on the first floor. It received its most recent fit out in the early 1980s. Due to the poor condition of the custody suite it could no longer be used.

This project involved extensive refurbishment and alteration to the existing facility to achieve NZEB compliance and provided a modern fit out. The works included demolition of existing two storey extension and storage shed, refurbishment of the existing station, construction of a three-storey over semi-basement contemporary extension to the rear including a new custody suite, with rooftop plant room, new boundary enclosures, secure storage, and all associated site works.
