The project involved the full fit out of three floors and the common areas of the Harcourt Building to strict corporate standards set by this worldwide client.
Each floor was split equally into enclosed and open plan space, and the internal finishes had to be carefully integrated with the specialist external and atrium glazing system.
The building was occupied while the fit out was being carried out, so it was necessary to have close liaison the building management company JLLS and to make sure that noisy activity and heavy deliveries took place outside normal office hours.
A distinctive feature of this project was that it was carried out in a building that was currently occupied by other tenants, in a built-up area that was being affected by ongoing Luas construction work. Because of this, some of the work had to take place outside normal working
hours so as not to disturb existing tenants on other floors. It was also necessary to arrange road closures at nights and at weekends allow crane lifting of materials such as glass, folding partitions and slabs to the required level.
In order to ensure the high level of production required to meet a contract schedule of 12 weeks, a dedicated team of 11 staff managed the project on a shift basis.
Special care had to be taken to ensure the decorative finish, which included specialist wallpaper, matched up with the client’s existing offices and kitchen facilities
