Two PUNCH projects win at the Irish Construction Excellence Awards

Two PUNCH projects were awarded prizes at the Irish Construction Excellence Awards 2018, which took place on Friday 23rd March at the Round Room, Mansion House, Dublin.

The first winner was the National Gallery of Ireland, which took home the Heritage Project Award. The National Gallery on Merrion Square is over 150 years old and houses the largest collection of fine art in the state. In order to bring the gallery up to the standards of a modern international gallery, a significant investment was needed in the fabric of the building. The newly refurbished building is a wonderful space to be enjoyed by the public and seamlessly combines the old building fabric with the latest in modern technology to create a marvellous visitor experience.

The second winner was Adare Manor, which picked up the award for Sports and Tourism. Adare Manor is set in 840 acres of pristine parkland and comprises the Manor House (the original 19th century Manor, built by the Second Earl of Dunraven), courtyard, formal gardens, and championship golf course on the banks of the tranquil River Maigue.

Accepting both awards, as well as three others, was John Paul Construction, the Lead Contractor on both projects. Big congratulations to the company and to everyone else involved. As always, PUNCH is proud to have played its part in delivering both projects to award winning success.
