Located just south of Dublin City Centre, Leopardstown Racecourse is host to some of Ireland’s top horse racing events including the Irish Champion Stakes held every September.
The project comprised of the refurbishment and internal fitting‐out of the hospitality and support areas on Levels 1-3 of the main grandstand building including a new external 60-metre long viewing balcony overlooking the parade ring, provisioning of the new catering kitchen, bar, restaurant and associated services to provide an improved terrace and high quality hospitality experience for horse racing advocates. Additionally the existing escalators were replaced together with the provision of a new lift.
The M&E plans were prepared by Axiseng to take into careful attention the intensive and challenging construction programme of the development phases and the work around the ongoing racing schedule. Axiseng collaborated closely with the contractor on site upon commencement of the project and supported to ensure the staged handover was achieved to meet the rigid deadlines.
The upgrade of the development will enhance the enjoyment of the horse racing experience and provide a modernized facility for patrons and business owners to enjoy allowing Leopardstown Racecourse to compete with international players and attract the best of the racing thoroughbreds.
