John F Kennedy Arboretum, Wexford
The JFK Arboretum in Wexford is a site of over 250 hectares, with approximately 4,500 species of trees and shrubs. The Arboretum was established in 1968, following a visit by Kennedy whilst President to the area in 1963. The original structure at the heart of the Arboretum is a masterclass in timber post and beam construction, although the exposure to weather in the south of Ireland has provoked some deterioration in the building fabric. We were appointed by the Office of Public Works to survey and establish a contract for fabric replacement and repairs to this beautiful structure, ongoing on site in Spring 2020.
