Client: Dublin Corporation
Value: €8.2m - Phase 1
The brief was for the refurbishment in 2 phases, of an existing
181 unit flat complex, built in 1936, and located within the North
East Inner City area.
The development of the proposals involved a detailed consultation
process with the existing tenants and the production of solutions
whereby substandard units in terms of size and layout could be eliminated.
Requirements for insulation, sound proofing, fire regulations, refuse
recycling and the hierarchy of public / private and secure spaces
between blocks were also considered.
The sequence of the refurbishment has required the temporary de-tenanting
of flats, along with their temporary relocation, to facilitate the
sequencing of the construction stage.
