Client: Kilmallock Library
Kilmallock Library, which is one of the largest ever-civic building projects to be undertaken in the County, features 1000 sq.m of Area Office accommodation and a full-time library. The development is complemented by 540sq.m of Court facilities for the Court Services of Ireland.
The library features an impressive range of book-stock with over 20,000 new titles and a comprehensive audio-visual collection, which includes books on CD and MP3 formats, the first music lending collection in Co Limerick, and a DVD film collection. The Library also provides an extensive language learning collection covering all the major language groups, while a suite of Internet PCs and a WIFI network facilitates information provision and research. A specially designed activity room has a seating capacity for 50 people and can be used as training, meeting or a lecture/exhibition space.
An extensive range of formal study and IT spaces are provided, including a special area for teenagers and easy area spaces for informal learning and recreation.
The Area Office and Regional Library building cost €6 million and was jointly funded by the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government, Limerick County Council and the Courts Services of Ireland.
Allied supplied and fitted all loose furniture including seating and tables and shelving to all zones within the development and fitted furniture including reception desks, wall panels and IT desking units. We also fitted out the offices in the offices of the courts. Working with ABK Architects Allied were very proud of the finished interiors as was the whole team involved. Brands used included BCI shelving, KFF seating and Tables, Pami Desking and Storage, Sellex Kids Furniture, and various other manufactures for lighting, accessories and breakout furniture.
