Eaton House

IrelandIrelandCompany Name: Platt & Reilly

Project description

Eaton Corporation Plc is a multinational power management company founded in the United States and based in Ireland, which provides solutions to its customers to manage electrical, hydraulic and mechanical power efficiently, safely and sustainably. Eaton House is a 5 storey 3,878 square metre (41,700 SF) office building over a single storey car park located in a historic Georgian block in Dublin, Ireland. The building houses executive offices, support staff, meeting rooms, huddle and conference spaces and a board room, all with state-of-the-art AV and connectivity for global operations of the Eaton Corporation. Gyproc Twin Frame Partition systems were used extensively throughout this project to ensure high levels of sound reduction and separation, and to meet the strict acoustic requirements as required by the building client. The construction of the building itself was challenging in terms of integrating a contemporary structure within a traditional Georgian landscape within the conservation guidelines.
