PJ Hegarty is delighted to announce that ESB Head Office, Project Fitzwilliam won the Building Category and the Overall Winner at the 40th Irish Concrete Society Awards for 2022. The awards evening and annual dinner were held on Saturday, 25th of March, in the Clayton Hotel, Burlington Road, Dublin 4.
Dave Casey, Director at PJ Hegarty, commented,
“I am delighted for all the PJ Hegarty Construction Team, our design team and the supply chain for getting recognised for their hard work and commitment to delivering such an iconic building. This project brought many challenges because of its scale and location in the heart of Dublin City Centre. The commitment and collaboration of our team in delivering all aspects of the project were exemplary. Well done to everyone involved.”
The ESB head office building on Fitzwilliam Street Lower is a stunning commercial building in the heart of Dublin city centre. The 45,000m² development comprises two commercial office buildings. The protected historic Georgian houses on Mount Street were restored and refurbished into modern, high-quality residential properties, maintaining their protected status.
This was a complex construction project in an extremely busy city centre environment, so PJ Hegarty Stakeholder Management Strategy was crucial to its success. We liaised regularly with city authorities, other public bodies and building occupiers and managed the environmental and structural monitoring regimes of adjacent protected structures and surroundings.
The development involved the construction of an exposed concrete frame to a ‘special finish’ standard, as well as challenging precast cladding and hand-laid brick installation. PJ Hegarty was also tasked with high-specification internal finishes to the commercial areas and complete residential fit-out.
We want to congratulate our construction and design teams involved with the project; this is deserved recognition for an iconic project in Dublin City Centre.
