Our recently completed 9,500 sq. m shell and core development at 76 Sir John Rogerson’s Quay has achieved LEED v4 GOLD, scoring 61 points. The completed facility is a waterfront development, 9 floors over 1 basement level, in a mix of commercial and residential space in the heart of Dublin’s docklands.
76 SJRQ is strategically positioned adjacent to both the city centre and the Dublin port tunnel with ease of access to both local public transport and major motorway road and rail connections. SJRQ is arguably one of the most accessible office/residential locations in Dublin and is just 30 minutes from Dublin Airport.
The project is designed to reduce annual energy consumption by 26% and saves over 47% potable water use through fixture selection and rainwater harvesting. 80% of all regularly occupied spaces have views to external features with enhanced ventilation systems installed. Mechanical systems reduce refrigeration use to minimise ozone depletion and global warming potential. Building systems have smart metering to manage consumption and alert the building team to any spikes or leakage.
The project is designed to encourage adaptive reuse and optimise the environmental performance of building products and materials. More than 20 products with third-party verified Environmental Products Declarations (EPDs) were installed and, during construction, over 80% of construction and demolition waste was diverted from landfill and incineration. GGBS, an industrial by-product that is diverted from landfill and up-cycled into a commodity product, was extensively used in the concrete mixes to further increase the projects sustainability credentials.
Congratulations to the client and to the design and contracting teams in achieving LEED v4 GOLD certification.
