Geotechnical Expertise for one of Dublin's Flagship Offices
Finalist in the Irish Construction Excellence Awards 2023 - Fit-out Refurbishment over £30m
Background: Tropical Fruit Warehouse is an original warehouse located in Dublin's capital city at Sir John Rogerson’s Quay, which was used to store imported tropical fruit during the 1890s. This iconic development included the construction of over 85,000 ft² of office space. The property, which dates back to 1892, has been fully restored and now incorporates two floating, fully glazed office floors which cantilever over the protected structure providing panoramic views over the river Liffey. The new office building to the rear of the warehouse is six storeys high and includes a partial single, partial double-storey basement. The building has been delivered to meet the highest sustainability and efficiency credentials. It is one of the first refurbishment projects in the Irish market to be completed to the new Nearly Zero Energy Buildings standards. The development has been shortlisted for an ICE award in 2023. It also meets LEED Platinum standards, the highest rating achievable in the green building classification process; and the building is WELL-Gold enabled.
