ARUP Consulting Engineers
Tritech Engineering were appointed the mechanical services contract for the fit out of Kings Building, 152-155 Church Street, Dublin 7. This project consisted of the fit-out of office space on ground, fourth fifth & sixth floors. The project was delivered in 2 phases with phase 1 fast-tracked delivering 80% of the contract in 12 weeks. Mechanical services installation included new and relocation of existing Fan Coil Units, CHW & LTHW piped services, condensate pipework, close control units to comms room & tech rooms, services to ground Floor showers & Micro Kitchens, heat recovery ventilation to all office floors, utility tie-ins, BMS Controls and Lead Co-ordinator for all specialist services.
The client wanted to achieve a high acoustic performance and therefore the performance of the air systems was critical.
Unique challenges of the project:
The existing shell and core and CAT A fitout required extensive alteration to supplement more air to the floor plate and inlet acoustic attenuation to all new and existing Fan Coil Units.
We engaged an acoustic specialist to measure the attenuation performance of a number of attenuators types to ensure the selection delivered on the acoustic performance required and reduce the coordination implication with the introduction of attenuation to every existing FCU.
