Greenlea Park

Project: House Extension

Location: Greenlea Park, Terenure

Client: Private

Budget: Undisclosed Completion: 2012 16 week project.

Architect – F&D Studio Architects.

Engineer – Lennon Consulting Engineers.

This project was a complete refurbishment of the existing 3-bedroom 2 storey house, which involved removal of all internal walls, electrical, plumbing, etc. The next phase was to remove the front and back walls at ground level in order to make room to install the necessary structural beams. During this structural phase we worked very closely with Lennon Consulting Engineers due to the complexity of the structural details involved. We then constructed a single storey extension to the front and 2 storey extension to the back.

Over the 16 weeks, we held weekly site meetings with both the client and architect to assess progress and address issues. It is vital to maintain a close working relationship with the client. On this project we were responsible for all aspects of the building including painting, tiling, built-in furniture
