Congratulations to all at Bennett Construction for taking home the top prize Commercial Office Building of the Year for the Grant Thornton building on City Quay last Friday the 29th November at the Irish Building and Design Awards. DBFL consulted on construction with Bennett Construction Ltd and Henry J Lyons Architects. We are delighted to be a part of this spectacular building and the well-deserved award.
The high-profile Printing House Square development on the Trinity College Campus at Pearse Street is currently at roof level. DBFL have provided civil and structural engineering services for the development, working with Bennett Construction to develop and design the structural solution which realises this unique and complex design. We are delighted to see the complex steelwork in place for the roofs of all three interconnected buildings in the development. The roof structures are multi pitched and multi-faceted with the roof pitches springing from third, fourth and fifth floor levels.
The Aungier Street student accommodation is approaching the final stages of construction with 2 of the 3 blocks complete and fit-out in progress. With an expected completion date of March 2020, this city centre student accommodation facility consists of 298 bedrooms, ground floor retail units, a gym and basement.
Kevin Coughlan sits at his desk in the DBFL Consulting Engineers office in Dublin, deep in thought. He has been talking about what initially inspired him to become an engineer. As a structural engineer, he expresses his enthusiasm on the topic, discussing his favourite structures that paint the skylines in various cities around the world.
