We are delighted to announce our success at the 2019 Irish Building and Design Awards held on Friday at the Clayton Hotel, Burlington Road for our Blackpitts Student Housing Project, The Tannery. The project which completed last year was awarded 2019 Student Accommodation Project of the Year, against stiff competition from eight other major student housing sector developments. The award recognises the outstanding design quality and construction execution of the project and demonstrates the continuous development of our expertise in the student housing sector. Our thanks go to the Irish Building and Design Awards Organisers, Judging Panel and to the Sponsors. In addition, our congratulations to our clients BAM Property Limited and Global Student Accommodation (GSA) Ireland.
Our EXO building at Point Square continues towards the completion of the external steel exoskeleton on site. The project - which will be Ireland's tallest commercial building - is becoming a highly visible landmark from a number of vantage points across the city and surrounding areas and its blue coloured steelwork has been developed to reference the distinctive blue colour of the cranes in Dublin Port. Following the topping out of the distinctive structure the unitised glazed cladding will commence installation followed by the major elements of the internal fit out as the projects continues on towards completion in 2020
Our major commercial office building Clanwilliam Court has recently received a decision to grant planning permission from Dublin City Council. Shay Cleary Architects have been working on the project for the last year and this planning grant is a major milestone in the redevelopment of this prominent city centre site on behalf of our clients Hibernia REIT plc. The highly visible corner site forms an important marker in the urban context at the Grand Canal on routes into and out of the city centre and is a gateway to a significant part of the Georgian Core in Dublin. In addition to the commercial office and associated facilities the project includes a gym, townhall space for use of the occupants and a restaurant and café which introduces new public uses onto Lower Mount Street and Love Lane and extends our previous work on other building on the site, including Marine House and Velasco House,
Shay Cleary Architects were in attendance at the Urban Land Institute’s tour of the emerging Boland’s Mill complex in Grand Canal Dock under construction by BAM. The view from the top of the new towers under construction is of our Alto Vetro building completed in 2008. Its iconic slender profile continues to mark the threshold of the city from the east and west and continues to be a significant landmark in the continuing development of the surrounding area
Our EXO Building, currently under construction in the Dublin docklands has been featured on Archdaily, announcing the project’s receipt of the 2019 International Award from The Chicago Athenaeum and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies. Archdaily is the worlds most visited architecture website with over 190 million monthly pageviews and it’s global reach helps to showcase The EXO building internationally as it continues towards completion next year.
Our EXO Building at Point Square has received a major international award for design from The Chicago Athenaeum / The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies. The International Award for 2019 was selected by a jury which convened in Vilnius Lithuania where 100 projects in various categories were given awards from a shortlist of 380 projects from around the world. EXO was one of only three projects selected in the Commercial Buildings category. The building which is currently under construction is due for completion in the latter half of 2020.

Marine House, a part of the Clanwilliam Court complex in Dublin 2 has recently received a grant of permission from An Bord Pleanála following approval from Dublin City Council at the beginning of the year. The project comprises a radical refurbishment and extension of an existing 1970's office building, improving its environmental performance, increasing its floor area significantly and providing a new highly glazed façade on this prominent site adjacent to the Grand Canal.
