John F Kennedy National Arboretum

The John F Kennedy National Arboretum in New Ross is set within a wooded landscape with over 5,000 types of trees and shrubs from all temperate regions of the world, planted in botanical sequence. The facilities are framed in timber with stone walls, and our ongoing works with Office of Public Works and the Arboretum team include a series of renovations to the roofing and facades, most recently with replacement cedar framed windows to the office wing in 2022. Proposals for a new pavilion have also been prepared as part of the long term vision for this beautiful natural resource and research base.
