Description of the goods or services required
Garda Security and Crime Operations Centre, Military Road, Dublin 8
The development is a six and four-storey building over a double basement, 10,060 sq.m in area with an approx. 9,275 sq.m basement for car parking and ancillary accommodation on a site of circa 0.86 ha. The office layout accommodates a mixture of both open plan and cellular offices. The brief also includes work-related, shared accommodation such as a gym, locker rooms, secure storage, showers and toilets, tea stations/kitchens, private outdoor space, along with sufficient meeting rooms and conference facilities. Three distinct blocks of accommodation cluster about a central atrium space that provides vertical circulation, natural light and natural ventilation into the offices. There is a mixture of naturally ventilated offices and the design exploits the existing site slope in the construction of the basement. The façade design is large profiled precast panels with curtain wall glazing floor to floor. In order to facilitate the development, the removal of some of the existing stone walls and the existing modern blockwork shed of 105 sq.m is required. A section of the boundary wall along Military Road will also be removed to allow for a new secure vehicular access into the site. The development will also include for the provision of hard and soft landscaping, a new stone boundary wall to Military Road, an ESB substation, a 7 metre Garda telecommunication mast on the sixth storey core roof, a 415 sq.m. single storey services building with a green roof, new foul drainage, attenuated surface water drainage and all ancillary site structures and works. The design protects the Deer Park Wall, a designated Protected Structure (DCC Reference RPS 5246) which runs along the eastern perimeter of the site and forms part of the works. The development will be fully accessible and will be energy efficient with a low environmental impact. The development will be required to comply with the proposed new Part L Building Regulations other than dwellings 2017 and NZEB.
