Roscommon County Council Headquarters picked up two awards at the 2016 R.I.A.I Awards for Best Public Building and Best Sustainable Building. This project also picked up the 2016 Fit Out Project of the Year in the Public Sector & an Award for Excellence in Sustainability.
Completed in 2015, the new headquarters for Roscommon County Council is located in Roscommon town, beside the old courthouse and on the site of the old Gaol. The 6,700m2 development consists of new office accommodation, new council chambers and facilities for elected members. The design is for a modern concrete framed building which utilizes exposed concrete finishes both internally and externally, which requires a very high level of specification and workmanship.
The building achieved BREEAM Excellent Certification (BRE Environmental Assessment Method), which requires the adoption of all best practice sustainability principles and standards.
