This Design & Build project consists of a new chilled extension (circa 4,500 m2) to the existing live Musgrave Chilled Warehouse in Fonthill Industrial Estate, Clondalkin. Co. Dublin.


The structure form of the building is a structural steel frame, precast ground beams, retaining walls and dock levellers. The roof and wall cladding is a Kingspan insulated panel with a single ply membrane. Composite decking forms the plantroom roof and the 1st floor office area.  The internal concrete floor slab is a steel fibre reinforced slab to a high quality FM2 finish.


The project involves full M&E and Sprinkler works, 6 dock levellers, 1 scissor lift and all associated service installations. A new vehicle maintenance extension, combi-jetty, gatehouse, 140 space staff carpark and a lorry yard are also provided as part of the works.


The external lorry yard consists of circa 11,000 m2 of concrete, laid to falls with retaining walls, all associated drainage, 890m3 of underground attenuation tanks and underground services to cater for the extension of the existing facility. The yard is ramped down to facilitate the introduction of the 6 loading bays with dock levellers.
The scope of the project also includes forming a new mezzanine floor within the existing warehouse and alterations to the existing offices, canteen and toilet core.


The project commenced on 13th Oct 2014 and has a 36 week programme
