We deliver sustainable facilities that promote health and wellbeing, initiating innovative ways to shape these special spaces. We take a holistic approach to sustainability and low carbon design, considering the project’s whole life carbon cycle, circular economy and operational carbon emissions.

Our specialist sustainability team works alongside our engineers to guide the design process and set the roadmap for achieving the project sustainability goals, certifications and Net Zero targets. Our agile, climate resilient design solutions ensure our work will continually adapt to the changing world, and future proofing our buildings is an essential part of our approach to sustainability and design.

We understand the need for resilience and reliability in our solutions, and continually challenge our strategies to reduce energy use and minimise cost in use through close collaboration with facilities managers.

Featured Project

Portmarnock Hotel and Golf Links

The Portmarnock Hotel and Golf Links is set on the coast at Portmarnock village, north of Dublin.

Once home to the Jameson dynasty (of Jameson Whiskey fame), the original historic house has been extended over the decades and is now a 134-bedroom hotel with restaurants, bars, wellness spa, fitness suite and event and conference facilities.

Waterman Moylan was appointed by Kennedy Wilson in 2014 to provide multidiscipline engineering services in addition to health and safety advice in connection with a major refurbishment and remodelling of the hotel. The works included the complete refitting of all bedrooms on a phased basis, a new spa and fitness centre, an extension to the dining and bar facilities and complete refitting to the reception, bar and restaurant.

A new glazed entrance loggia was added and the external areas around the entrance were upgraded. External works included the reconfiguration of the car park and the introduction of feature lighting.

Our building services team was heavily involved in developing the fit-out proposals for the project and played a leading role in both internal and external lighting solutions in particular.

The refurbishment was carried out in phases while the hotel remained in operation and the project was completed in 2016.
