Organisation : John Paul Construction

Location : Dublin

Requirement :

John Paul Construction, a leading international infrastructure specialist, was awarded the contract to redevelop the former Bank of Ireland headquarters into a high-profile commercial office complex in the heart of Dublin. The project required site office and welfare accommodation for a workforce of more than 200 people over two years.

Solution :

Keith O’Brien, Project Manager at John Paul Construction, says: "We had used Allspace secure site accommodation buildings from Portakabin in the past and they were able to come up with a solution to the specific challenges associated with this site, which included a very restricted footprint and a congested city centre location, into which we had to fit a large number of site buildings."

The team worked closely with John Paul Construction and its contracted engineers to devise a suitable three-storey installation on the narrow footprint. Despite the large overall site, there was only a limited area in which the buildings could be located without impacting the 24-month build programme.

The Allspace secure buildings chosen for the project are constructed from fully galvanised structural steel, making them robust, corrosion-resistant and easy to maintain. Window shutter guards, reinforced doors and anti-jemmy strips provide enhanced security.

26 buildings of varying sizes were fitted out to provide office, canteen, drying room and toilet facilities for the site-based workforce. The buildings were painted in the corporate colours of John Paul Construction to create a uniform, attractive site complex.

Keith continues: "The collaboration with the team worked very well. The logistics of getting large trucks to the site and craning the buildings safely into place was a considerable challenge. The installation management and delivery was very good and, apart from one weather-related delay, everything was completed to schedule."
