Dublin City Council has appointed J. B. Barry and Partners Limited to provide the Civil / Structural engineering services for the redevelopment and refurbishment of Dolphin House in Dolphins Barn, Dublin 8. Dolphins House was constructed in the early 1950’s and the existing residential units and site layout requires upgrading and reconstruction to achieve compliance with current Development Plan / Building Regulation standards.
The project involves the redevelopment and refurbishment of three of the existing residential blocks (which comprise a total of 72 units) into 63 modern apartment units. The existing green area between two of the blocks will be enclosed by a new apartment block on the north side of the site to comprise of 14 apartments to form an enclosed landscaped courtyard. On the south side, the two existing canal blocks will be demolished and replaced by 9 new houses facing the canal (3 two storey and 6 three storey). A further two new apartment blocks to comprise of 6 and 8 units will be constructed either end of the existing eastern residential block. The total number of units proposed is 100.
We are delighted to be a part of Dublin City’s ongoing refurbishment.
