Irish Aviation Authority,
D’Olier Street, Dublin.
Following the relocation of the Irish Times to a new building on Tara Street, we were the contractor in charge of the rejuvenation / refurbishment the former offices on D’Olier and Fleet Street, Dublin 2.
The new development provides the corporate headquarters for the Irish Aviation Authority. This a commercial state-sponsored company which provides air navigation services in Irish- controlled airspace, and regulates safety standards within the Irish civil aviation industry.
The IAA Fit-Out comprises five floors of high-end office space featuring glazed partitions, raised access floors, IT equipment including video-conferencing. Located on the 1st Floor and procured through public procurement in 2014 is a start of the Art conferencing facility. The lecture theatre can seat up to 60 guests along with six meeting rooms, all equipped with the most modern AV and communications equipment. Also on the 1st floor is a banqueting facility which can cater for 150 people during an event. The fit-out also includes a complete refurbishment of the original Irish Times building, a protected structure, carried out in ac- cordance with best conservation practice.
The fit out of the conferencing facility was carried out whilst the building was in full use. This project demonstrates the company’s ability to deliver a complex city-centre construction project on a restricted site, while working on and adjacent to protected structures.
