Cork Street Student Accommodation
Just one of many student accommodation projects that DBFL have worked on over the last few years. This high-quality student accommodation facility, on the site of a former factory facility on Cork Street in central Dublin provides 399 bed spaces in studio and 4 to 8 bed clusters over 7 floors. A landscaped central courtyard is provided at ground floor and there is an external terrace at 6th floor level along with a green roof area. No car parking spaces are provided on the site, but two disabled on-street parking spaces are provided with a set down space for delivery vehicles.
DBFL undertook opening up works and surveys of the existing buildings on the site prior to demolition and provided a specification document to allow accurate pricing of the significant demolition package. As is common in this part of Dublin there was a significant depth of existing fill below the site, so in situ concrete bored piles were adopted for the foundations. The superstructure of the building is in-situ reinforced concrete frame with reinforced concrete flat slabs at each floor supported on RC columns. The flat slab arrangement enables services to traverse the ceiling void without interruption from downstand beams. External walls are constructed with a mix of outer leaf brick and cladding and an inner leaf SFS system.
