Victorian Redbrick Substation East Wall


Conservation & Refurbishment


On Site

Dublin Port

DBFL are providing Structural & Civil Engineering services on the restoration and extension of the Victorian Redbrick Substation on the corner of East Wall Road and Alexandra Road at Dublin Port.

The project involves the stabilisation of the existing 2 storey protected structure, conversion of the space to double height with the construction of a similar height glass box structural steel frame and exposed ‘haute’ concrete extension to the south. The recently discovered substructure historic East Wall, to which the substation building was originally constructed off, will be open to view through a 10m2 glass floor internally.
