Indeed Capital Dock
Metec and Tritech Engineering collaborated on the fit-out of Indeed Capital Dock, located on the Dublin quays. The client, Indeed, had a grand vision for their offices involving a unique and complex architectural design. It entailed turning two separate spaces into one combined office, presenting some interesting challenges on the way.
Building Information Modelling
The base building was a Cat A grey box, which had not been completed in Revit. We’ve always been great proponents of Building Information Modelling, and Metec’s modelling of this space greatly benefited our work here as we were able to utilise 3D point cloud scanning technology to ensure we had an accurate record of the existing Cat A installation before delivering clash free installation drawings. This greatly reduced our on-site construction coordination time and ensured we met the deadlines for our phase of the programme.
Mechanical and Electrical Installation of Indeed Capital Dock
The project's design elevated the complexity of alterations to the mechanical and electrical installations. It incorporated extensive areas of exposed ceilings therefore the appearance of the mechanical and electrical installation became an architectural element all of its own.
These installations included close control units to IDF (Independent Distribution Frame) and MDF (Main Distribution Frame) comms rooms, heat recovery ventilation to all office floors, MS controls, and drainage and ventilation services to the kitchen/canteen facility.
Tritech and Metec’s relationship
At Tritech, we always have two main goals in mind; firstly to add value to a building by providing the highest quality work, and secondly to build strong, mutually beneficial, engineering partnerships. We exceeded both of these goals with this project. However, our connection with Metec extends much further back than just this project. Metec’s Managing Director, Bernard Denver and I first met while working on Bank of Ireland, Mespil Road, as contractor and consultant, all the way back in 2001. We both share a vision for delivering high quality work for our clients and increasing the value of every project we work on. It is a relationship we’re very proud of, and we look forward to working together on many projects in the coming years.
