Powerscourt Distillery is located on the grounds of Powerscourt Estate, Co. Wicklow. The project consisted of an extension to an old mill building to house the new Distillery Process Manufacturing Plant and a Front of House Visitor Centre which also encompasses a refurbishment of the old mill. JV Tierney & Co. collaborated on our design for the Mechanical & Electrical Services with the process equipment designers Forsyths, a 5th generation family-owned business from Scotland who have been manufacturing distilling equipment since the 1890’s.

The second phase was the fit-out of the Front of House Visitor’s Area, distillery tour facilities and amenities, including refurbishment of the old mill. In the first phase, JV Tierney & Co. were responsible for providing all Mechanical & Electrical services with the exception of the process plant and equipment. In the second phase, JV Tierney & Co. were responsible for all of the Mechanical, Electrical and Lift services for the Front of House.
