27 & 28 Fitzwilliam
Bannon were engaged as part of a multi-disciplinary professional group to review five architectural submissions for the redevelopment of ESB’s new headquarters. Bannon worked with the selected design team in a design development role until planning was submitted in 2014 to ensure a commercially attractive development was delivered.
Bannon Consultancy worked with the design team to ensure the development met with the changing market demands of commercial Occupiers and Investors. The role primarily involved the balancing of key conservation and design principles given the sensitive environs of the site, while maintaining commercial viability and ensuring the building delivers high quality and sustainable office accommodation. The client was committed to energy reduction and the development was planned to be the most energy efficient office block in the State, aiming to produce a zero-energy building which has already received an A3 BER and a BREEAM Excellent Certificate.
Bannon’s involvement on the scheme began in 2010 and concluded with the ultimate sale of the development in 2020. Bannon’s multi-disciplinary role beginning at design development stage in this successful redevelopment demonstrates the value we can add to complex large-scale sites.
