Project: Site 527

Applicant: Exeter Properties Investments II Ltd.

The warehouse development at Site 527 is located within a 1.75 hectares site at Grants Hill, Greenogue, Rathcoole, Co. Dublin.

The key elements of the project involved the construction of:

  • 6,641m2 (71,484 sqft) warehouse area, including the installation of super flat FM2 specification flooring, dock levellers and level entry doors.
  • 756m2 (8,138 sqft) integrated offices and staff facilities over three floors finished to high specification throughout.
  • Ancillary car parking at the front with a durable concrete HGV marshalling yard and parking located towards the rear of building.
  • Site development works including all services, foul & surface drainage, stormwater attenuation and boundary treatment.

Ground conditions and site hydrology created a challenge for both the civil and structural design aspects of this building. Site levels and drainage were diligently designed based on the results of the detailed flood assessment, while the buildings structural design overcame weak ground conditions requiring a specialist foundation solution. The buildings stability was ensured by founding on piles with our close monitoring, design & detailing.
