No. 1 Grand Canal Square was commissioned as a speculative office building in Dublin’s Docklands.
The building features a number of elements that were uniquely developed for the scheme, including a lift shaft internally clad in granite and a custom-designed façade system employed on the north and east of the building. Four types of glass are used in the construction: a high selective solar control coated glass for the largest units, an anti-reflective coated glass for the smaller units highlighting the structure, a decorative dichroic coated laminate glass for the external fins and a high selective solar control coated glass with a coloured laminate for the rear of balconies. All are supported in a combination aluminium and steel system, supported from the primary structure on a structural steel sub-frame. The entire comprises a Grade A, six storey office building extending to 11,150 sq m with 60 car parking spaces. The building is secured under long term leases to excellent tenants including HSBC, IPB, Accenture, Citadel and Bank of Ireland and offers a weighted average unexpired term in excess of 10 years.
