Client: Cork County GAA Board

Cost: Phase 1 - €780,000 + VAT Phase 2 - €2,160,000 + VAT

Equivalent Cost in 2009: €3,800,000

Completion Date: Phase 1 – August, 1992 Phase 2 – November, 2002

Description: The Ground was converted in 1993 from use as a Soccer Ground, known as Flower Lodge, to a Ground, used for Hurling, Gaelic Football and Camogie. It was further developed in 2002 as a 700 lux level floodlit ground, with a capacity of 16,400 persons, of whom over 5,000 are seated. The original natural grassed playing pitch which was regarded as having an excellent playing surface, was extended by forming a 1.8metre wide drain extending to limestone bedrock, around the perimeter of the original and new playing areas. The Grounds were totally revamped and a new Pavilion, Seated and Standing Area Stands and stepped concrete Terraces were provided. The Grounds is extensively used by the County teams for playing National League fixtures and for training and also by club teams and schools, thereby fulfilling a wide ranging purpose. It was the first Ground in the Country used for televising hurling games. The Firm was involved as the Project Manager, Civil and Structural, Mechanical and Electrical Design and as P.S.D.S.
