    Project Summary

    This project involved the refurbishment of Knowth House, stables, farm building and existing carpark and landscaping at Knowth, Co. Meath. The Stable building and farm building are 18th century protected stone structures in an L formation around a courtyard.

    Proximity to the Knowth burial chamber meant that this project would be highly sensitive in terms of heritage and archaeology in particular.

    There were two distinct fronts to the project. The existing car park required wide spread improvements including extension, drainage, resurfacing, secured access, lighting and power points in order to accommodate the OPW Bru na Boinne tour buses. Significant landscaping works were also undertaken.

    The second front was to refurbish the existing farm buildings at the site. These would be used as exhibition space and to accommodate visitors on their arrival and prior to their departure.

    Special Features

    • Polished concrete floors with underfloor heating
    • Stabilisation and insulation of existing roofs
    • Working in such close proximity to the Knowth Burial Chamber required a good working relationship with the OPW design team and archaeologists
    • The curved reinforced concrete retaining wall in the carpark was crafted on site by Lissadell carpenters and experienced operatives
