The Project


Location: Dublin

Architects: Henry J Lyons

Contractor: John Paul Construction

Highlights Of The Project

Walls to Workstations supplied and installed a first of its kind in Europe curved fire-rated and non-fire-rated atrium glazing in 1SJRQ.

The prestigious building at 1-6 Sir John Rogerson’s Quay, developed by Hibernia REIT, occupies a landmark site that merges old and new architecture. The design combines a restored Dublin tramway entrance and two industrial-era buildings with a new six-storey grade A office complex.

More details about this project: 

The sense of openness and lightness of the structure at 1SJRQ takes maximum advantage of the magnificent river views framed by the retained façade of the 19th-century tramway with its 14m-high arched brickwork entrance.

The retention of the brickwork façade required the new building to be stepped back from the quay, which led the design team at Henry J Lyons to devise an atrium with minimal visual barriers, allowing a connection between the internal spaces and the river flowing in front of the building.

Walls to Workstations participated in this ambitious project creating a U-shaped run of atrium glazing fire-rated and unbroken by structural posts.

Curved atrium main components:

  • E30 Fire-Rated Element
  • Technishield 50 trackwork
  • Vetrotech Contraflam Structure Lite EW30 glass (20mm straight glass)
  • Vetrotech Contraflam Structure Lite Contour E30 glass (20mm curved glass).

Small atrium components:

  • Techishield 65 Trackwork
  • Vetrotech Contraflam Structure EI30 Statip Silence glass (rating of 45dB – 30mm glass-)
  • Non-fire-rated Optima’s 117 single-glazed trackwork
  • 12.8 Acoustic Laminate glass.

Through effective collaboration with Henry J Lyons, Vetrotech, and Optima, Walls to Workstations delivered a visually appealing outcome for the client with the highest precision and elegance, meeting the stringent fire safety requirements.
