PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Leo Laboratories manufacture and produce topical medicines from their facility in Crumlin, South Dublin. After successfully completing earlier projects with the Client, ADCO were awarded the contract to carry out a high spec office refurbishment, external building overhaul and landscaping packages. The work was undertaken in a live working environment with a strict construction timeline.

Challenges Faced
- Works were undertaken in the midst of a major logistics route through the busy warehousing and distribution section. Traffic management and co-ordination with these departments played a crucial role in ensuring an uninterrupted logistics operation
- The construction program set by the client was demanding with all works designated to be completed prior to Christmas. To enable ADCO to fully meet the Clients expectations ongoing communication between all the parties concerned was of critical importance.

Innovations
 
- The use of prefabricated and colour coordinated aluminium flashings brought a modern feel to the façade of the building while at the same time providing a maintenance free roofing detail.
 - The existing dated internal staircase was upgraded using a combination of selected hardwoods, stainless steel and glass balustrades to give the entrance lobby a modern and open look.
 - The carefully designed landscaping has resulted in the feel of “an office within a garden”
 - The installation of a cedar covered spiral staircase has lifted the dated façade of the building whilst ensuring full compliance with the Building Regulations.

Successes
- Project was completed on time and within budget
- ADCO received an excellent reference from senior project management post completion as well as a lot of praise from various employees and contractors with regard to the positive visual impact the refurbishment has made on the site.
