Croke Park, Dublin
Client : Cumann Lúthcleas Gael Teoranta
Value : £147.6m (€165m)
Located close to Dublin city centre, Croke Park was redeveloped into a world class 82,000 seat stadium and bears testimony to a sustained effort by the client, the design team and John Sisk & Son as the main contractor.
Constructed around and within a live arena, the Sisk management team provided a new facility to the highest international standards, while seamlessly accommodating the client’s seasonal cycles.
Developed in four main phases, the stadium was returned to the client for selected weekends in each sporting year to suit the GAA’s games programmes, and each time with increased seating capacity.
The complex now offers corporate hospitality, an interactive museum, lecture and conference facilities and hosted the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2003 Special Olympics World Summer Games.
