Home / Case Study / 1 George’s Quay
Description

Located in the heart of Dublin City Centre, No. 1 Georges Quay is the iconic former Ulster Bank HQ on the south bank of the River Liffey. Alucraft were appointed specialist façade sub-contractor on this extensive refurbishment. We were responsible for the design, development, testing, engineering, fabrication, logistics, delivery, co-ordination, installation and commissioning of all the new façade elements.

The scope of work on this project also included the refurbishment of all existing Schueco RS50 Windows and FW50 Stick Curtain Walling which were supplied and installed by Alucraft 25 years ago. As testament to the excellence of Alucraft and Schueco, post forensic investigation of the windows and curtain walling concluded only the gasket and IGUs had to be replaced. The aluminium framing was 100% retained. This is just one example highlighting the quality and workmanship of Alucraft & Schueco products.

The new extensions and rooflight were designed and constructed in FW50+ & FW60+ Stick Curtain Walling with the rooflight semi capped and the façade fully SG. In addition to the glass façade were various other items such as aluminium soffit panels and parapets, louvres, revolving doors, internal fire rated atrium screens with feature fins.
