Vania Goncalves 16 Mar 2017 EUROPE BUILDINGS

BAM Ireland has been awarded a contract by the Bolands Quay Development Group for the construction of the Bolands Quay Development in Dublin’s south docklands.

The 36,851 sq m project, designed by Burke Kennedy Doyle, will feature three new buildings comprising office, residential, retail and cultural space, as well as restaurants and cafés.

The old stone mill buildings will be converted for commercial and residential use, while two towers, 12- and 13-storeys high, will comprise office space.

In addition, a number of protected mill buildings will be restored and a new civic plaza and pedestrian bridge will be constructed.

BAM Ireland CEO, Theo Cullinane, said: “We are very pleased to have completed this agreement, which will develop this quarter of the thriving Dublin Docklands into an exceptional commercial and residential space.

“Ireland needs world-class office buildings to attract international investment and Bam is uniquely positioned in terms of experience and expertise to deliver the landmark projects the country needs to compete on the world stage.”

Hegarty Demolition Limited carried out the demolition and enabling works in 2016, which involved stabilisation and protection of structures, internal strip out, service diversions and demolition works. It took them eight months to demolish the 1950s-built silos.

The National Asset Management Agency (NAMA) provided €170M for the project. When completed, Bolands Quay will accommodate up to 2,500 workers.
