ABK Architects were appointed to lead a multidisciplinary team in the preparation of a masterplan for the Irish Maritime and Energy Resource Cluster (IMERC)

IMERC, a strategic, national initiative that aims to deliver specific objectives concerning Ireland’s maritime and energy sectors, is geared to support indigenous commercial enterprise in Ireland and to attract Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) from overseas companies with a particular focus on research and innovation in the maritime and energy sectors.

The Masterplan for the reclaimed lands at Ringskiddy in County Cork provides the framework for the development of a campus style development to cater for industry partners through the provision of co-located industry suites, incubation units, networking and brokering programmes, innovation partnerships and joint ventures.
