Our client, a State body which manages a complex portfolio of public assets and liabilities, were relocating from two buildings in Dublin City centre to a new facility on the North Wall, located beside the new Central bank of Ireland. It is an impressive landmark building. The works comprised the fit out of circa 144,000 sq. ft. over 10 floors in No. 1, Dublin Landings, North Wall Quay for office accommodation. This project achieved Fitwel certification.
Designed by Perkins & Will and Coady Architects the office needed to accommodate around 850 workstations, together with comprehensive meeting facilities and break out areas. The 7 working floors areas were designed to encourage collaboration, provide quiet concentration areas and support smaller meetings. The ground floor provides another meeting and training area, with a visitor lounge prominent at the front of the building welcoming visitors to the space. The lower ground houses a large cafe area, which also gives scope to use for town hall meetings and staff wellbeing facilities such as a games area and gym.
The finished setting provides a professional and practical work space, with innovations for users and visitors to come together and use a variety of work locations to aid productivity and wellbeing. A comprehensive static and roller racking system allows for a bespoke filing solution tailored exactly to our clients’ needs.
Early site visits were critical to establish access into the 10 floor building surrounded by other construction sites, and manage the complexities of delivery via atrium hoist.
The client wanted to ensure that the building offered an excellent environment for both personnel and sustainability, so all commercial office furniture products considered had to comply with FitWell certification, fully documented throughout the process.
This project won the Irish Building and Design Award 2019 for Interior Architectural Project of the Year.
