At J.V.Tierney &Co, we are proud of all the work we carry out for our clients and none more so than for the project that we participated in 2017 on the 14,800m2 1WML building in Dublin 2. The work was one part of the overall regeneration of SOBO (South of Beckett O’Casey) district that links the canal dock with the Dublin city centre and was for Hibernia Reit, who own all 4 of the adjacent buildings located there.
1WML is a 5 storey building that includes elements of retail, apartments and commercial offices, covering 14,800m2 and was recently awarded LEED Gold Accreditation for its high levels of environmental design and the sustainable design methods used in its construction. To achieve this status, a great deal of collaboration was carried out by the design team including during the commissioning phase where we carried out the role as Commissioning Agent (CxA) on behalf of the Client.
What the Award Means
The certification is a mark of quality, standing for ‘Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design’, which judges new building projects on how energy efficient they are and how much or little they affect the environment around them.
As the award that 1WML received was amongst the highest possible to achieve, we are very pleased that the award reflects the collaboration and dedication that went into the project.
Sustainable design represents the future for construction not just in Ireland, but across the world and as a major exponent of the engineering and construction practices involved, we are well placed to help create a greener and cleaner future for business and the wider world.
