Hammerlake Studios Creates 300 Construction Jobs

300 Construction Jobs will be created when work begins on a film and television production venue in Mullingar, which has been granted approval by Westmeath County Council. Hammerlake Studios will be a purpose-built film, television and content production campus constructed on a 25-acre site at Lough Sheever Corporate Park, Mullingar, Co Westmeath.

Located 55-minutes from Dublin Airport and adjacent to the M4 motorway, the Hammerlake Studios campus aims to attract the world’s biggest film and content productions from Hollywood and across the globe.

Construction will take place over two phases.

Phase one, totalling 236,000 square-feet, will comprise four sound stages suitable for large-scale film and television production, an administrative building, workshops, data technology centres, editing rooms, food, fitness, and other amenities. Construction is estimated to take 12-months with film production operations to commence from the first quarter of 2024.

300 construction jobs will be created in phase one.

Phase two, which will be submitted for planning approval in Summer 2023, will see an additional seven studios added to the campus, bringing the total footprint to 460,000 square- feet.

Paul Chesney, Chief Executive Officer, Hammerlake Studios said: “We are excited by the decision by Westmeath County Council to grant us planning in principle. It represents a significant step forward in our plans to build a world class film and content production facility in Mullingar, one capable of accommodating the biggest and best film productions.

“The Hammerlake Studios campus will showcase the beauty and welcome of Ireland and its local community, along with the scale and landscape of a vibrant working studio, where content makers will want to work time and time again,” Chesney added. “Ours will not just be a functional service oriented working studio, but a destination that delivers everything a production entity will ever need, from creative support, technology and equipment, secure data capabilities, along with first class catering and off-stage filming capability all in one campus.

“As new broadcast platforms continue to announce international expansion plans, it’s an exciting time to be part of this industry and our chosen destination is primed to be a lead player and preferred option for content makers everywhere.”
