Market Square, Dundalk
In mid 2009 urban design specialists Nic de Jong Associates (Ireland), designed Market Square, Dundalk with John Craddock Ltd appointed as contractor during October 2010. Throughout the design and pqq phases Glenn Bradley, Hardscape’s Regional Manager for Ireland, had been keenly following the initial concepts and when asked, providing material advice to Craddocks which culminated with Hardscape securing the actual material supply of blends of Portington Black, Mist, Kobra and St. David’s Pink granites in February 2011. Glenn was supported by Hardscape’s Asil Besim on Technical & Manufacturing aspects to the supply.
Pallets of product began arriving to site in June through to November 2011 and the completed scheme was recently handed over to Dundalk Council. The ‘bar-code’ aesthetic is amazing and all can be justifiably proud of creating this shared space for the people of Dundalk and the wider Louth area.
