The form of this landmark building which overlooks the Luas Bridge at Dundrum was dictated by the nature of the site, with its curving boundary to the Dundrum Road.
The structure consists of a ground floor shop over a basement workshop and stores and offices at first and second floor level.
The building has a reinforced concrete frame, with in situ concrete floor slabs and a central concrete block lift shaft all founded on piles and reinforced concrete ground beams.
The project provided a number of serious technical challenges. The main Dundrum drain runs under the building and this had to be enclosed in an accessible shaft. The riverbank wall had disappeared and had to be re-built with sheet piling. The site is effectively below the level of the main road which had to be sheet-piled to facilitate the construction of a basement.
