Station Building II | John Sisk & Son
Project: Station Building II
Contractor: John Sisk & Son
Client: Fenderside DAC
Lead Architect: KMD Architecture
Contract Value: €5 million
This project involved the refurbishment and restoration of part of the former Harcourt Street Train Station and more recently the POD Nightclub. It is a significant landmark in the city centre with renowned historical significance. The project therefore created a unique Office space of 15.446 Sq Ft and retail works space of 6,000 Sq Ft rarely experienced in the current marketplace.
Located on the corner of Hatch and Harcourt streets, Station Building Two is steeped in history, having formerly served as the Harcourt Street Railway Station terminal for the line to Dundrum and Shankill. It was also the site of a famous train crash on Valentine’s Day 1900, which saw a locomotive overrun its stopping points and crash through a wall, to hang 30 feet above Hatch Street. Subsequently the building became the Pod Night Club, one of Dublin’s most iconic social venues.The independent.ie
The Project includes a new public realm space adjoining the green luas line on Harcourt which will create a new vibrant external restaurant seating space. This has opened the streetscape between Harcourt Street and Hatch Street continuing the regeneration of this area of Dublin.
The project has been successfully delivered and exceeded client expectations and requirements through excellence in design, planning and management.
This project was a collaboration with: John Sisk & Sons, KMD Architecture for client Fenderside DAC. The team at Surety Bonds wish all those who have contributed to this project the very best in the ICE Awards (To read more about this project see : Station Building 2
