As Project Managers, Cost Consultants and M&E Consultants on this exciting project we are delighted to confirm that the first major contract has been awarded to Limerick based, Roadbridge Civil Engineering & Building Contractors. This comes following a competitive tendering process for the Center Parcs Longford Forest Holiday Village. The key infrastructural development works are part of the €233m Center Parcs Longford Forest development at Newcastle Wood in Co. Longford and are scheduled to commence in May.
The infrastructure contract comprises the earthworks, road and path networks, utilities, drainage system, the lake and building platforms.
It is expected that the Center Parcs Longford Forest development will create approximately 750 jobs during the construction phase. Once open, the forest holiday village will have capacity for up to 2,500 guests and employ up to 1,000 people in permanent jobs.
This new development will bring together the high quality features for which Center Parcs are renowned, including up to 500 lodges, designed with families and the environment in mind, more than 100 indoor and outdoor activities, a spa, a range of restaurants and cafés and the iconic subtropical swimming paradise, with water rides and fun for all ages.
The process to select contractors for the two other major pieces of work, including the main buildings and the lodges at the village is expected to go to tender later this year.
