Harold’s Cross – master planning

Project Description- Master planning

The Greyhound Board wished to upgrade their facilities at the Harold’s Cross Greyhound Stadium in Dublin and commissioned CCH to masterplan the overall site, to accommodate the additional requirement, such as a new entrance, better facilities for patrons, new kennel area, Chief Steward accommodation and better admin facilities.

When examining the overall site, CCH discovered an extensive area of un-used land on two sides of the greyhound track and designed a residential development of some 150 houses with its own separate entrance off the public road. Subsequently Planning Permission was sought and Granted and the Board sold of the land with the benefit of the Grant of Permission.

CCH master planned the remainder of the brief and went on to seek Planning Permission and to oversee construction.

Project Description – Hospitality

Following on from preparing a masterplan for the entire stadium site, CCH were commissioned to upgrade the patron facilities. The existing stand was open to the elements, except for a roof which afforded part shelter only. CCH designed a full glazed screen to enclose the upper part of the existing stand and designed the fit-out of a new tiered seating/dining area, including private areas, where patrons could dine while watching the racing, new kitchens, public concourse, new entrance and ticketing area as well as an on-course betting area.
