Lullymore Heritage & Discovery Park’s new Peatlands and Biodiversity Boardwalk was launched in December 2014 by Tanaiste and Minister for Social Protection, Joan Burton T.D.
Ecoplastic worked closely with Park Manager Ray Stapleton by offering design and construction advice for the 500 metres of 100% recycled plastic boardwalk which make up the walkways along the biodiversity trails.
“Ecoplastic were great to work with. It was their extensive experience of similar projects as well as their commitment to working through any project–specific issues with us that ultimately made our minds up to use Ecoplastic materials for the boardwalks. During the tender stage we viewed materials from other suppliers, but the quality and expertise of Ecoplastic were unmatched.” said Ray.
“Despite having no prior experience using recycled plastic as a construction material, we found it simple to use and install – we’re looking forward to providing 40 years of maintenance–free use to all of our visitors.”
“The park is now truly the “Gateway to the Peatlands” for tourists travelling from Dublin” continued Ray. ”We believe that this tourism will help form a sustainable future for both the community and our natural environment, and will support the economic growth of the entire County”.
