Ardmore Studios, Herbert Rd., Bray, Co. Wicklow.
This project involves the construction of a 21,500 sq. ft. state-of-the-art film studio along with a 24,000 sq. ft. support space comprising a stage area, and a 5 storey support building comprising support spaces, stores/props, waiting areas, changing areas, hair/make-up, production offices/admin, loading areas and plant.
The new stage and support building will be constructed on the site of the existing surface car park, which will be demolished and replaced with the undercroft car park. A new standalone security building will be constructed at the main entrance, along with a redesign of the entrance and internal road layout, including new footpaths, cycle parking, control points and delivery/lay-by areas. The existing pillars at the main Ardmore entrance will be relocated to the avenue within the site. The external works will include the associated site development works, landscaping, boundary treatments and services provision.
