ZeniMax Online, based in Maryland, United States, is a premier developer and worldwide publisher of world-class online games that established their European operations headquarters in Rahoon Business Park, Galway. The project included the refurbishment and fit-out of a 4,200m² industrial unit to an office environment whilst accommodating the 24/7 online technical support operations of a web-based gaming company.
The client commissioned Axiseng to lead the mechanical and electrical planning and designs of the project due to our specialization in high-tech digital giant EMEA HQ fit-outs.
The restored large open plan workplace included over 450 workstations in a high density occupational pattern (one person per seven square meters). The fit-out also included a data room, full menu catering kitchen and recreational facilities.
The aggressive 16-week construction programme was designed to be stringent in maintaining as much of the original building fabric as possible in order to facilitate a smooth planning permission. In the interest of reducing construction time, Axiseng utilized a modular wiring system throughout the entire facility thus reducing significant onsite construction time and maximising cost savings. The new office generated 200 new customer service jobs for the local community and has plans for an additional 250 job creation in the coming years.
