Lansdowne House Ballsbridge Office Refurbishment

The existing Lansdowne House building is on a prominent corner site in Ballsbridge with 9 floors over ground floor with public street frontage on 2 sides. This project involved the complete strip-out of five floors within the building including the ground floor, 3rd floor, and 6th – 8th floors. The strip-out included the existing partitions, suspended ceilings, all floor finishes and mechanical and electrical services installations. Extensive modifications were required to the existing layout / fit-out to facilitate new spatial requirements of WRC and upgrade of the services over 5 floors. Existing ground, third, sixth, seventh and eighth floors were altered / fitted out for other government office use, complete with open plan layouts, cellular meeting rooms and ancillary accommodation. The main entrance way was completely altered to include the public plaza area and reception. The entire project was completed within a challenging programme of 28 weeks.
