Around the world, the Client of this project, Aviva, provides around 18 million customers with insurance, savings and investment products in our core markets (UK, Canada, Ireland) in 2020. They provide life insurance, general insurance and asset management services.
Located at the heart of Blackrock Village, the shopping centre hosts a range of stores from food, fashion, footwear, healthcare, CAT A Offices, books to flowers with one of the best Supervalu’s in Dublin. Axiseng worked on both landlord and tenant elements as part of the design and construction.
We completed a refurbishment of the retail units, internal public spaces and back of house essential services including the construction of the new metal ceiling, new management suite, toilet facilities, landscapes promenade and retail units dedicated to designer clothing brands such as Lisa Perkins and Julia Rossini. We have also been involved in the completion of the shared carpark on the ground and lower floor levels.
Since 2016, Axiseng has been the Client’s preferred choice for engineering advice and solutions.
A key requirement of the works was that the stores remained open and trading during all construction periods. To allow for this, our services were planned on a phased basis to always limit the size of the construction area.
We’ve worked with this client on various projects, including upgrades to essential plant and strategically enhancing the existing plant in selective areas.
As part of an office fit-out, the original floor was converted and increased into office space. With consideration of future tenants’ changes, centralised metering and dedicated services routes to plants space have been taken for as part of the design.
