Primark European HQ
A 6-storey over basement office building for Primark’s new European Headquarters Building at Arthur Ryan House on Parnell Street/Jervis Street in Dublin. This project required significant structural intervention, including both buildings together with a 5-storey high-glazed atrium.
The glazed atrium incorporates 3 levels of glazed meeting room pods and 13m span link bridges between both buildings. In addition to this a new, steel framed, glass-enclosed lift was constructed off the atrium. This was provided in order to serve the 1st to 3rd floor. Furthermore, a new goods/passenger lift was constructed from basement level up to fifth floor.
New foundations were formed by mini-piling in the basement and threading the new structural columns up through existing floors. The work was designed so that it could be constructed on a phased basis in a live environment without impacting Primark’s retail operations in their ground level store and existing office areas.
