Our Commercial Properties list ranges from Advanced Technology Manufacturing Units (ATMUs), warehousing and logistics facilities to a range of large and small office accommodations. Our property portfolio includes over 200 buildings and 1,500 acres of development land all within 15 key locations based in the West of Ireland. As we enter into our next phase of our masterplan to grow the Shannon Free Zone, we have exciting plans in the development pipeline. Environmental sustainability is an important part of Shannon Group’s development objectives, and our commercial projects are constructed to the criteria outlined in the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification process.
Completed Projects: Airside Hangar
Shannon Group plc is completed a new €18 million, 92,000 sq ft specialist aircraft painting hangar at Shannon Airport, adjacent to Shannon Free Zone. The hangar is capable of accommodating some of the world’s largest aircraft and is Ireland’s first aircraft hangar to be developed in almost 20 years.
Sustainability and efficiency were key parameters in the design process of the new hangar, with all maintenance and engineering equipment chosen for maximum efficiency. The new hangar will feature LED lighting, maximum transparent panels in the roof for natural light, an air recirculation system for the extraction system and a heat recovery system for exhaust air.
The hangar was successfully delivered for lease in 2019 to Shannon Free Zone tenants, IAC – International Aerospace Coating, a leading global aircraft painting, interiors and graphics specialist.
Blocks C & E (One & Three Airport Avenue)
Construction of a Grade A office development and a Research and Development facility is now concluding the internal fit-out stages with Block E currently in use by tenants Jaguar Land Rover. Block C is 55,000+sqft over 4 floors. The building has been awarded LEED gold standard and is fully air conditioned with up to 350 car parking spaces available.
GE Sensing Extension
Shannon Free Zone tenants GE have undergone a 16,000+sqft extension to their current research and development facility in Shannon Free Zone East. We attribute this growth to the multitude of benefits associated with carrying out the multinational companies’ operations in the Shannon region.
