As we look forward to the ICE Awards Gala Event fast approaching on the 14th May at the Convention Centre, this week’s blog looks at the last of our nominees in the the Fit Out or Refurbishment Under €10m category of this year’s Irish Construction Excellence (ICE) Awards, proudly sponsored by Surety Bonds.
Category: Fit Out or Refurbishment Under €10m
Project: Dublin Airport Central
Contractor: T&I Fitouts Ltd
Client: DAA plc
Lead Architect: TOT Architects
The Dublin Airport Authority’s new offices are located at the heart of the Dublin Airport campus. The DAA group employs over 4,000 people at its operations in Ireland and abroad. The office fitout project delivered a new office HQ environment where non-front-line staff can consolidate into one central location on the DAC campus from 7 other different locations.
The new offices span four floors and have a dynamic, contemporary feel. To accommodate different working styles and activities, the office includes a mixture of cellular and open plan space for which acoustics play a key role. The considered design was to enable staff work better and more efficiently together in order to achieve the DAA’s ambitious business strategy while syncing 7 independent departments into one cohesive environment.
The new DAA HQ office had to embody and reinforce the business’s core values, and ultimately reflect a dynamic organisation with a focus on community and sustainability.
Features of the 43,000 sq ft fitout across 4 floor include:
- Mixture of Cellular & Open Plan
- Reception Area & Training Facilities Installation
- Town Hall Meeting Area Installation
- High Quality Bespoke Joinery Throughout
- Full M&E, AV & IT Upgrade
- Full Canteen installed including Back of House facilities
