In July 2019, some existing ground level parking bays at the Intel campus in Leixlip were closed to prepare for future parking needs on the site.
Using eco friendly low carbon cement, thousands of precast units were pieced together to form a new 5 story car park. The parking facility has capacity for 2,200 cars and ample electric car charging stations on each level. Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag (GGBS), which is a recycled material, is used in the mix design of the concrete in order to increase the recycled content of the concrete and reduce the environmental impact of a structure or precast element.
Construction of the car park was completed in just over a year and on August 17th the facility was officially opened by Intel Ireland General Manager Eamonn Sinnott and Intel Ireland Director of Construction, Niall Dillon.
Speaking at the opening of the new structure, Eamonn Sinnott said: “Despite the difficult circumstances were all dealing with, it’s great to be able to officially open this new facility which is one part of the critical infrastructure we need as we look to the future”.
