Limerick Institute of Technology’s Coonagh Campus is the first engineering-focused higher education campus in the Mid-West of Ireland.

The new 7,000m2 engineering campus provides an additional 542 places on LIT’s engineering courses, an expansion which is considered essential to support industry demand in the region.

Designed to provide agility of use, the campus will go beyond what is traditionally expected from an educational institution. It will provide facilities that encourage education and research to co-exist, facilitate industry leaders to meet and share ideas, and allow companies to use the various diverse spaces for training courses and seminars.

Tobermore is proud to have provided granite-look paving and kerbs on this landmark Irish project.

The Challenge

Contemporary paving was required to complement a new education campus.

LIT required a hard landscaping solution which was as modern as its newest engineering campus in Limerick. The primary design consideration was that the paving had to be aesthetically pleasing. In addition to this, the paving would have to withstand heavy footfall and trafficking.

The Solution

Tobermore’s granite-look paving and kerbs add aesthetic appeal
to this landmark project.

Manhattan is an attractive plank-style paver from Tobermore. Its modern, minimalist look made it ideal for LIT’s new campus. The
linear block paving product boasts a hard-wearing surface and a contemporary look.

Manufactured with sparkling granite aggregates, this durable block paving is a popular choice for higher education schemes. Manhattan was laid in contrasting bands of Silver & Graphite to create a clean, eye-catching design for LIT.

City Pave VS5 offers a stylish granite-look block paver with maximum shift protection. LIT’s new campus benefits from its robust performance and modern appearance.

Tobermore’s granite aggregate paving was complemented with their decorative Textured Kerb. The kerb’s exposed granular surface adds consistency to LIT’s hard landscaping aesthetic.

"The LIT Coonagh campus is a piece of infrastructure that will play a major role in helping to sustain the economic development of the Mid-West into the future."
