Green Energy Solutions have been involved in the development of large and small scale shopping centres both in Ireland and abroad. We have provided services to new builds, refurbishments, renovations and upgrades. Having completed works on an extensive number of shopping centres, Green Energy Solutions are confident in their abilities not only to reduce your buildings energy bills but to future proof your building for any future renovations or upgrades.
Shopping Centres offer significant energy saving opportunities as they have long opening hours and many mechanical and electrical systems. We find that many shopping centres are wasting a lot of energy by unnecessarily operating equipment outside of opening hours, escalators are left running and vending machines with non perishable goods left switched on. Noel Lawler Green Energy Solutions can carry out a complete energy audit of your shopping centre to identify energy savings. Recently we have saved our clients up to 40% on lighting costs by changing to a more energy efficient lighting design and 33% on their heating costs by re-commissioning heating systems.
Ferrybank Shopping District
One of Ireland’s largest shopping centres, the Ferrybank Shopping Centre development consists of both commercial and mixed retail. The centre has 30,000m² floor space over a two storey basement providing 36,000m² of car parking for approx. 1,100 cars. The centre can also accommodate a multi-screen cinema, residential apartments and a community centre. A key feature of this project was the fast track construction programme developed. NLCE acted both on behalf of the Developer in bringing together an outline design scope and also as the M & E specialist contractors in the development of their detailed design. The centre itself cost €100 million to build. Through innovative low energy design we have created a shopping centre with minimal running costs. This provides both a comfortable place to shop but also higher profits for the owner.
Rayadah Shopping Mall
This entire plot measures approximately 2.5 million m². The Shopping Mall is to cater for a variety of retail, food and leisure activities, while providing a safe, comfortable environment for the general public. The shopping mall is a two-story building with a large multi-storey car park to the south and surface car parking to the North.

The second floor consists of children’s entertainment area, 10 screen Cinema, food court and smaller retail units in the centre.

The Sq. Town Centre
This shopping centre required a small extension to the foodcourt to fit a seating area and a new restaurant. GES staff provided full mechanical and electrical designs for this extension. which now hosts the El Gringo Burrito Bar in the foodcourt.
A number of retail units within the shopping centre were also fit out as a part of this project. We provided designs for lighting, emergency lighting, ventilation, fire detectors, fire alarms and a spinkler system in both the new extension and the already existing units.
