Project Description

This is a high profile office development in Dublin City Centre, over seven floors, with a total floor area of 23,000m2. A double storey basement was also included as well as the refurbishment of a terrace of four houses including two protected structures. Demolition of a number of existing structures on the site as well as site clearance also formed an important element of the project.

The basement footprint was formed using a secant piled wall around the full perimeter of the site. The basement itself is a tanked reinforced concrete structure, designed to grade 2 standard. The superstructure consisted of a reinforced concrete frame with reinforced concrete columns supporting flat slab construction at each level. Part of the top floor is constructed in lightweight steel frame to allow for the future addition of an extra floor. Lateral stability in the structural frame was achieved by diaphragm action through the floor plates into three separate structural cores around the building.

The project has been sustainably designed to LEED Platinum certification.
