The Finer Details:

The International Rugby Experience is a world-class interactive tourist centre situated in the heart of Limerick city at the corner junction of O’Connell Street and Cecil Street. This unique development, which is of huge significance for Limerick city, comprises a seven-storey building with a two-storey portico at the front entrance, a two-storey block to the rear and a three-storey block over an existing building. It is expected that the visitor centre will easily attract in excess of 100,000 visitors per year.

Techrete were engaged to design and manufacture 190 brick-facing reconstructed stone panels offsite, which cover 1,849 square meters of the project façade. We worked closely with Flynn Construction and Niall McLaughlin Architects from an early stage to ensure that the ambitious architectural plans could be realised.
