Recently completed projects
Recently completed projects include Tropical Fruit Warehouse, Dublin 2, for IPUT; Spencer Place Residential, a large residential block for Ronan Group Real Estate (RGRE) at Spencer Place, Dublin 1; new lab and admin building for Pepsi, Cork and new admin building for Boston Scientific, Cork.
Tropical Fruit Warehouse, completed in June 2022 for IPUT Real Estate Dublin, is a protected structure refurbished, reconfigured, extended, and adapted to house an 80,000-sq-foot, six-storey office development.
Refurbishment works were carried out in line with the meticulous detail required by the conservation team. They required restoration of the building in line with the original brickwork and natural stone façades. The original roof trusses from the 1890s were taken off-site for structural repair and complete restoration before being reinstalled in the building. The restored building is complemented overhead with a contemporary addition of two floating, fully glazed office floors which cantilever over the protected structure, providing panoramic views over the river Liffey.
The recently completed Spencer Place Residential project, at the heart of Dublin’s North Quays, offers some of Dublin’s most high-quality, modern, and vibrant living spaces. It provides over 390 much-needed homes, ideal for city living, with exclusive facilities for residents working from home to cater to the growing demand for hybrid working. State-of-the-art facilities include a 24-hour concierge service, an on-site gym, a cinema, and penthouse communal areas with views of Dublin’s skyline.
This development leads on sustainability, with all apartments boasting an A rating and design that achieves maximum energy efficiency, using a combination of high-performance building fabric materials and high-performance heating equipment. Over 50% Irish-made products have been used in creating these homes, reducing carbon use in the supply chains, and supporting the local economy.
The Boston Scientific project in Cork consisted of constructing a new administration building of approximately 3,220 sq metres on its campus at Business & Technology Park, Model Farm Road, Cork. The new facility includes a canteen, offices, meeting rooms and support areas over three storeys and is integrated with several existing structures on site. The site works include the relocation of 35 existing car parking spaces and the construction of additional 40 parking spaces in a new dedicated car parking area, a minor modification to the internal road layout, new landscape areas and planting to boundaries. The development is within the curtilage of a Protected Structure PS637, the former Munster Institute’.
