Aura Leisure Centre & Sports Campus

We acted as main contractor and PSCS to successfully deliver this large leisure project for Letterkenny Town Council on time, within budget and to a high quality standard. Internally the project encompassed a 25m swimming pool complete with a moveable pool floor, a children’s paddle pool, 2nr twister adventure water slides, a large multipurpose hall to cater for various sports and entertainment events with automated retractable seating, a health suite, an aerobics studio and a large gym. Externally we constructed a full size all weather soccer / Gaelic / hurling pitch, a senior and junior specification soccer pitch, a 400m Olympic standard tartan running track, a skateboarding park and a cushioned surface children’s playground. The total area of the complex is circa 17 acres.

Deep driven concrete piles were used due to the very poor ground conditions, we were required to carry out extensive site investigation, testing and enabling works were required in advance of the project. We completed Aquifer works, with 2nr boreholes and approximately 400m of hdpe piping laid. We constructed, installed and commissioned the plant for a biomass boiler to heat the complex, we also provided a pumping station for the sewage on site.



Waterworld Bundoran, Redevelopment of Waterpark

This project involved the fast-track redevelopment of an existing children’s Waterpark in the tourist town of Bundoran. Works included installation of new toddlers pool, galleon ship to wave pool, new multislide, new external to internal speed slide, modifications to tornado flume and ancillary works. The external claddings to the building and roof were replaced entirely, and extensive mechanical and electrical upgrades carried out including new pump and filtration equipment. The pool was closed throughout the construction phase with the pool reopened in time for the summer season. Works were completed on time and on budget within a short time frame allowed due to the strict official opening date.
