mac was awarded the shell and core construction of The 8 Building, Newmarket Square, Dublin, 8. This 118,000 sq.ft. commercial building consists of a single storey basement car park with 6 floors. This project achieved a LEED Gold rating.
The design and build of a 106,000 sq. ft. office development comprising six floors over a single storey basement, the structure consisting of an in-situ concrete frame with the façade being constructed from a combination of curtain walling (unitised system), zinc cladding and stone façade. Cladding systems included the Corium ‘Brickslip’, the first time this system has been used in Ireland. It is a well established product in the UK but this is it’s flagship project in Ireland. The basement construction was undertaken using a contiguous piling method to provide earthworks support for the basement excavation. All lift cores, stairwells and toilet areas on each floor were fully fitted out to a very high standard.
Sandwiched between two live operating businesses with one requiring party wall agreements and treatments, this project encountered major challenges at commencement on site when we discovered extensive asbestos contamination and extensive archaeological interest, both of which had been underestimated in the received tender information. We worked closely with all parties to re-sequence and re-programme the works to mitigate disruption, resulting in minimal delays to the overall programme.
