The project consisted of the creation of a new Dublin headquarters for the Client. The space included meeting rooms, canteen area, offices and an open plan area. The office space is 100% generator-backed with an element of desking UPS supported. The associated data centre is also 100% generator-backed including the dedicated cooling with all IT load UPS-backed. The data centre also included VESDA, gas fire suppression and leak detection.
Axiseng were commissioned as the mechanical and electrical consultancy due to our strong track record of working with financial intuitions and a good understanding of the supporting systems.
The building was an existing multitenant office space. The design was required to work within these constraints to deliver a working solution to the client.
To facilitate the design and installation, a detailed review was required of the existing services and in particular the riser space available for the tenant plant. An understanding of not only the Landlord plant, but also the other tenants in the building was required to ensure these were not affected by the construction.
