Construction of three office buildings on a green field site in Mahon, Cork.
City Gate Park consists of 3 No. office buildings on a green field site adjacent to Mahon Point Shopping Centre, Cork. The buildings are four and five storey high structural steel and in-situ concrete frames over a pre-cast double basement structure and in total will deliver 25,000m2 of usable office space and 600 no. basement car spaces.
The works include the installation of associated services and finishes to all common areas and full completion of all external works. There is a strong green emphasis in the design of the development, with features such as rainwater harvesting, potable well water, solar panels, high specification facade, etc. all included in the design. In order to meet a very tight programme, BAM have employed alternative 'off-site' engineering solutions to key elements, including full precast concrete basement, composite steel superstructure and unitised facade systems.
The contract also included a full turn-key fit-out of Block C for Dell/Quest Software. The fast track project was completed ahead of programme and with zero variations to the Contract.
Citygate Park is the first commercial office development in Ireland to achieve the coveted US Green Building Council LEED Gold Certificate standard.
