New Regional Distribution Centre with a Gross Area of 59,000m² and one of the Largest Solar Roof-Top Arrays in Ireland

This project at Lidl Regional Distribution Centre Mullingar provides an extension to the existing warehouse of 15,000m² area to create a gross area of over 59,000m². This project includes the full refurbishment and fit-out of the existing Administration office block. A total of 254 car parking spaces and cycle parking spaces are provided on the site, circulation space surrounding the building, gate house, pump house, sprinkler tank and electricity substation.

JVT provided full M&E Design for the Warehouse, Office Wings, and Site, including:

  • LED lighting with DALI dimming control throughout extension
  • Extensive use of daylight harvesting to reduce lighting demand
  • MV power distribution to two new 2MVA transformers
  • Protective service design including fire alarm, emergency lighting, lightning protection, and sprinkler system with over 20,000 sprinkler heads
  • Roof mounted 1.21 MWp solar photovoltaic (PV) system – the renewable generation will deliver approximately 20% of the overall electrical demand of the RDC
  • Up to 500kW of waste refrigeration services heat utilised to provide LTHW to serve underfloor and radiant panel heating to Warehouse areas, as well as 50kW to serve the anti-heave heating in cold rooms
  • Cascade condensing gas boilers provide additional capacity to the LTHW underfloor heating system, when required
  • Heating plantroom incl. pumps, pressurisation units, expansions vessels and all associated controls

Alongside the Lidl Regional Distribution Centre in Newbridge, the solar array will be among the largest roof-top arrays in the Republic of Ireland, with the potential to create enough electrical energy to power up to 2,000 average households.
