SNC-Lavalin subsidiary Atkins has been selected to design a 10,700 sq m six-storey office block for budget airline Ryanair in Dublin. The building will be located alongside Ryanair’s existing head office at Airside Business Park near Dublin Airport.
Atkins will be involved from the original concept through planning application, detailed design, contractor procurement, construction supervision and handover. It will work on the project’s civil, structural and M&E engineering, as well as handling landscaping, project management and cost consultancy.
The development will contain sustainable features such as solar panels, electric vehicle chargers and energy-efficient lighting.
Justin Norman, Atkins Ireland’s managing director, said: "This is a significant project which adds to our portfolio of work supporting Ryanair’s continued growth from a well-established base in Dublin.
"It’s also allowed us to work with Ryanair to design a highly sustainable building in a fully digital environment, utilising BIM to drive improved collaboration and efficiency." Â
Thomas Fowler, Ryanair’s director of fuel and facilities, said: "This iconic office development is Dublin’s new generation of contemporary workspace and is an exciting addition to North Dublin’s global business district. Our state of the art six-storey office development provides spacious, inspiring, light filled workspaces with panoramic views. "
Earlier this year, an Atkins joint venture was selected for a $1.9bn rebuilding project in Puerto Rico, Atkins was also chosen to develop a blueprint for UK flying taxis and will help and an Atkins plan Sweden’s high-speed rail network.
