APA Facade Systems are delighted to have worked alongside West Architectural Facades on the new world-class Food Innovation Hub for Teagasc in Cork.
The Food Innovation Hub is part of the Project Ireland 2040 plan, an investment made by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine to support innovation in the food industry, thus enabling companies to become Brexit-ready while also generating market-focused research initiatives.
The facility will provide office accommodation, business incubation suites, application suites, laboratories, and a cafeteria. The new development will accommodate industry and clients in R&D programmes, within the dedicated office and laboratory units – integrating same, and utilising the current facilities, into the Teagasc Research Moorepark Centre – and facilitating development & education between industry & research, to advance new research & product innovation, economic growth, and job creation.
West Architectural Facades have installed installing our TB50 SG curtain wall and ST70 HI Window to this 3,000m² three-storey €6.5 Million development designed by CJ Falconer & Associate Architects and managed by Conack Construction.
This new Teagasc scheme has generated such interest across the food research sector that close to 90% of available spaces in the building are already pre-let.
