PROJECT SUMMARY

The prestigious Central Bank of Ireland opened its doors in 2017, after a successful delivery through Walls Construction and Henry J Lyons Architects. The new Central Bank of Ireland Headquarters reflects a renewed and revitalised institution. Its distinct profile reflects the surrounding maritime setting, commanding a strong presence in the docklands area.

The transformation of the building’s interior blends flexible open plan offices, with a variety of collaborative working spaces. This renewed design, works to create an innovative working landscape for the Banks 1,450 employees.

THE CHALLENGE

Standing at 8 stories tall, with a total floor area in excess of 22,000m², the sheer volume of internal space raised concerns regarding noise levels. With the number of employees and visitors on site at any one time, noise levels were of a concern at an early design stage.

SDG were proud to work with Platt and Reilly, to provide a designed acoustic ceiling system from our key partners, Vogl Germany.

THE RESULTS

The unique joint technology of VoglFuge offers maximum reliability for installation, resulting in:

  • Quick mounting of panels – “edge-to-edge”
  • No more complex aligning of panels
  • Quickest possible joint finishing with the unique VoglFuge strip
  • Significant time saving due to short installation and drying times
  • Mximum crack resistance
  • Less dust and moisture

This is where the VoglFuge® system comes into play, a system which achieves acoustic design ceilings quickly, economically and with the most reliability during installation for guaranteed results.
