Hueston South Quarter
Dargan Building —
Office Fit Out Dublin 2.
The project works was located in two separate occupied buildings and spread across nine different units in the Dargan & Sancton Wood buildings within the Hueston South Quarter development complex.
Both buildings are occupied with residential apartments over head, creche and also live retail units. Noise control was a major factor for the residents and also the retail units so we agreed time periods for noisy works and we constantly liaised with the building manager.
The fit out consisted of cellular offices, open plan space, meeting rooms, conference facilities, kitchenettes and toilet facility. The ultimate end user is the HSE, so end user meetings were setup to agree samples and any specification clarifications, especially with regard to M&E which was managed by both our Project Manager (Aaron Magee) and our Technical Services Manager (Cathal Smith).
The specification for the building was agreed within the development agreement and therefore there was very little scope for change but most importantly all aspects of the works had to achieve the specification. We proved this through our technical submittal process prior to commencement. This was aided by our Information Sharing platform that we set up for the project.
The project was delivered one month ahead of schedule, which included BCAR validation, defects free, system demonstrations and O&M manuals completed. This project is a fine example our ability to complete high specification commercial fit out in a very restricted environment under very challenging logistical circumstances.
