Genesis Aircraft Services is a full-service aircraft leasing company with 31 customers in 27 countries globally. They have a fleet of 72 Airbus and Boeing commercial aircraft.
To create their new headquarters in Dublin, they required a CAT B fit-out of the 7th floor space of Block I in Central Park, Dublin 18, with a NIA of 795m2 of Grade A office area, including the provision of reception area, meeting rooms, boardroom, break-out spaces, open plan office areas and ancillary / canteen space.
The brief included the provision of all heating and cooling requirements, security, IT, fire alarm and lighting to suit to the architectural layout.
The Client engaged Axiseng for this fit-out due to our experience on the Base Build Shell & Core design for Block I in Central Park.
This was invaluable in the design of the fit-out and resulted in the ability of Axiseng to review the test fit-out proposals at an early stage in the concept design and assist in the feasibility studies of these test-fits.
One of the main challenges on this project was developing the electrical and AV/ IT brief with the client’s team. Through our ISO-accredited data sheets and matrices we were able to fully develop the brief, and present the impacts via conference calls, and was ultimately signed off.
The M&E design included the re-use and repurpose as much as practicable of the installed M&E installation. This methodology contributed to less waste on site and reduced the need for new plant to be procured, including the carbon footprint associated with the transport to site. The re-use methodology also reduced the capital expenditure impact of the fit-out. The M&E design also catered for high-efficiency and low-energy consuming products including LED lighting with associated controls, EC motor waterside fan coil units, and high-performance thermal insulation.
This project resulted in significant media coverage and further highlighted the benefits and advantages of blue-chip companies choosing Central Park for their HQ.
