Point Village, Dublin 1
Project Completion May 2014
G2 were appointed main contractor for the refurbishment and upgrade of 96 no. apartments at the Liffey Trust Apartment scheme adjacent to the Point village. The scope of the works entailed the stripping out of each unit, upgrading to meet current building regulations and refitting for occupation.
The project was carried out on behalf of KPMG, IBRC and Arragone Ltd (in receivership).
Part of these works involved compliance works in relation to fireproofing to both private and common areas. All apartments were let out at the time and as part of an agreed schedule G2 undertook to complete 4 units per week. As it was an active building it was an extremely challenging undertaking and involved a significant amount of logistics and planning on a daily basis. This involved carrying out pre surveys of each unit, liaising with the tenants, moving the tenants out for the duration of the works and moving them back in on completion. A significant element of these works was the detailing and recording of every step of the process in order that the complex could be successfully prepared for sale. A photographic report along with detailed specification was prepared for each apartment for hand over on completion. In excess of 10,000 photographic records were taken as part of the compliance process which gives an idea of the complexity of the works involved.
The project duration was originally 7 months however G2 managed to increase the turnover to 6 units per week and completed the works within 5 months which allowed the sale to be completed ahead of programme.
G2 were delighted to be involved with Mc Carthy and associates, Michael Collins and assoc (architects) and Michael Slattery and assoc (engineers) on this project.
