Radisson SAS, Galway

The Radisson is a 4 star 217 bed hotel and also Galway’s first international standard hotel, located just minutes walk from Eyre Square in the centre of the City. The conferencing and banqueting facilities in the hotel have been designed to cater for up to 1,000 people and include state of the art audio visual installations.


Galway’s Radisson can also boast one of Irelands most exclusive Health and Leisure Centres, which includes an 18m swimming pool, fully fitted gymnasium, sauna, outdoor hot tub and a luxurious spa. The Hotel was built on a 17,000 m2 site and was completed in 11 months.


The key aspects to this project were achieving the fast track programme and 4 star quality. Update provided a full turnkey design and project management service on this contract, which coordinated all areas of the electrical installation. Ultimately this resulted in delivery of the finished product to a high standard within time and budget.


There was a fifth floor added to the hotel in 2004 containing luxurious executive suites. Update Group installed the electrical services to this floor while the hotel remained open. This phase of the project called for a significant amount of co-ordination between Update and Radisson staff to ensure a minimum of disruption to the hotel. The overall project value was US $12.5 Million.
