Knock Basilica, Co. Mayo

Client:       Knock Basilica

Complete: April 2015

Value:       €9m


This project involved the complete interior refurbishment of the National Shrine, which attracts 1.6 million pilgrims each year. The basilica, which can accommodate 10,000 people, was built in 1976, but very little enhancement work had been carried out since then. The refurbishment of the building included new services throughout with the addition of lifts and a full internal fit-out.

IN2 carried out extensive environmental analysis, as during wintertime, continuous cold discomfort issues were experienced within the Chapel areas, by congregation members. IN2's design solution provides not only long-term cost savings, but an enhanced environment, in terms of heating, ventilation and lighting design,  for the vast numbers of pilgrims visiting the basilica each year.
