Brief

Lafferty Architects are collaborating with Multi Retail Management Ireland Limited as part of a long term vision for Blanchardstown Town Centre, with the ambition to create a mixed-use retail, leisure, office and residential destination at the heart of an integrated town centre.

The first significant steps in this development consist of extensions to the shopping centre, including internal reconfiguration, to enhance the retail, food and leisure offer as a catalyst for the repositioning of Blanchardstown as a whole.

Response

Larger retail offer core to the Centre in the first “Central Mall” scheme; opening up the Red Mall with improved circulation and larger destination anchors; increasing food offer throughout.

BIM is core to Lafferty’s work process and this proved essential in informing the design, enabling stake holder visualizations and coordination of detailed design with a full team of consultants.

Successful planning applications and BIM coordinated detail designs.
