At the end of March, Smiemans Projecten was scheduled to begin work on a 1,000-metre squared expansion of The Pavilion Garden Centre in Balygarvan, County Cork.
The project was going to entail modernising the current garden centre by replacing the existing glasshouse which covers an area of approximately 500 metres squared and to extend it by 1,000 metres squared.
And, despite the challenges that Covid-19 brought since March, the expansion of the successful garden centre will open its doors in September.
“Despite the circumstances around COVID-19, Smiemans managed to realise this major expansion on time and to the high quality specification that was expected.”, said Charlie O’Leary, owner of The Pavilion Garden Centre.
On the site of the old greenhouse, 1,500 metres squared of glass construction of the Venlo type (SP Small Span) has been built.
The greenhouse has a column height of four meters and is equipped with maximum ventilation.
As a result, sufficient volume has been created indoors and the maximum permitted construction height has also been met. Good ventilation has always been very important, especially now under the current circumstances. The result is a bigger and more beautiful garden centre.
