Ikea, Dublin

Construction of a 32000sqm new store IKEA in Ballymun Dublin, and associated planning gain car park works. The store was built with 1400 car parking spaces in total.

The scheme incorporated the “green Ireland” directive which called for 60% renewable energy be used on the scheme. This led to the largest closed loop geothermal system in Europe at the time being installed on the site, plus other technologies including wood burner, cladding panel type / detailing.

Close relationships and management of the retail team was required so that co-ordination of the overall process could be achieved.

Project delivered 2 weeks faster than any other IKEA new build of its type in the world at that stage, with a high emphasis on quality of the finished product and IKEA standard details.
