Perfect harmony required
Close to the city centre, just to the south of St Stephen’s Green, Dublin’s Earlsfort Terrace is best known for the National Concert Hall. Thanks to its location and its prestigious address, it has long been a popular business district. However, recent years have brought a massive increase in demand for quality office space, and as a result, there has been considerable development and redevelopment activity in the area. While Earlsfort Terrace is an ideal location for a high-profile financial company, it presented considerable challenges to those involved in this construction and fit-out project – particularly as the site was in a tight space on a street with high-traffic and footfall. For instance, access was limited during certain hours and noise controls were in place.
Planning and co-ordination strike the right note
As the mechanical and electrical contractors on this CAT B fit-out project, McKeon Bros was tasked with providing and fitting all the electrical, data, air-con and ventilation infrastructure. Turnaround time was just six weeks. Knowing that meticulous planning and careful co-ordination are key to the successful delivery of all fit-outs, upon appointment we immediately established contact and clear lines of communication with the other contractors on the site, Connect Construct and SLMD.
We successfully wrapped up the project on the agreed date, which happened to be a Friday. That same weekend the client moved in, making the space fully operational the very next week.
