Project Description

Client: LIDL Ireland GmbH

Architect: MCA Architects

Date of Completion: 2015

This project consists of 6260 sqm of retail, restaurant, office and gym space on 0.9-hectare brownfield site in East Wall, Dublin 3. The redevelopment of this site on reclaimed ground posed many engineering challenges such as:
• Poor ground conditions consisting of Dublin Bay silts and soft clays
• Contaminated ground
• Retention of 4.0m high boundary walls in mature residential areas
• Minimising the internal columns whilst constructing 3 storeys of mixed usage over the ground floor retail
• Programme constraints

A brief summary of the notable project features are:
• Engineered capping layer over the soft silty and clays
• Piled foundations
• Retained and stabilized factory walls used as boundary wall • 12.9 m * 11.6m Structural grid to retail and gym
• Generous storey heights of 5.35m
• Green roofs
• Permeable paving
• 8 month construction programme
