Phase One

The first phase of the project (original building with chimney) consists of three incubation units and offices. It also involves the preparation of the site for future development. Work started on the development in June 2014 and the first tenant took occupancy in March 2015. Indications to date are that there will be 10/12 jobs created and supported in this building. With phase one completed there is now a visible asset of which we can all be proud.

Phase Two

The site is also prepared and the infrastructure in place for phases 2 and 3.
Phase 2 provides for another 3,000 square feet of enterprise units (double the size of stage 1).
It will not be started until the current project is debt free. The amount outstanding on the completed development is €60,000 and through a series of fund raising projects in 2015 we are hoping to clear this debt completely.
