EPIC Ireland is the new state of the art visitor experience that showcases the unique journey of the Irish nation, where stories of old are told through the technology of now.  IN2 were responsible for the environmental analysis of the vaults, the lighting simulation design and the design for the heating solution for the exhibition, café, restaurants and retail areas of the project.  The subterranean nature of the facility meant that the temperature was quite stable. The downside was that the existing vaulted brick construction was Grade 1 listed.  As part of the original restoration, horizontal concrete ducts were formed which link across the lens and out to external. IN2 were able to use these ducts as service pathways, providing fresh air, high level electrical/audio visual and fire protection as well as sprinkler system.
