Demesne Architects were shortlisted with BAM, to prepare a full construction design for the National High Performance Training Centre in Dublin.

This Elite Sports Centre is an extension to the Irish Institute of Sport and will be an integral part of the National Sports Campus. It will cater for the training and monitoring of elite and high performance athletes and sportspeople, to allow them to perform at the highest level.

The centre features a four lane sprint track, strength and conditioning areas, a mixed use training zone, a five ring boxing gym, medical treatment rooms, a relaxation zone and ancillary accommodation.

Demesne Architects led the design team, combining a unique blend of elite sports expertise and local construction knowledge. The evolved design overcomes the technical challenges of an elite sports facility, in terms of combining functionality, layout, fabric performance, exemplar design parameters and aesthetic design, whilst always mindful of the primary objective of the building, to ensure that athletes can be prepared and tested to allow them to perform at their highest level.
