The Digital Hub, an incubation centre specifically for digital-focused enterprises, currently caters to a cluster of 70 companies in the Liberties area of Dublin city.
A 19th century Grainstore building on the Digital Hub campus recently underwent a €3.5m refurbishment to provide an additional 10,650 square feet of enterprise office space. It is believed the building was originally part of the historic Marshalsea debtors’ prison located in The Liberties, and subsequently served as a grainstore for the Roe Distillery.
The refurbished building features a central glazed atrium which stretches from the ground floor to the roof, three stories above, flooding the concourse and adjoining office space with natural light.
Allied was successful in securing the contract to supply and install glazed screens throughout the entire atrium and new office area, in addition to glass balustrades along connecting walkways.
Full-height Fire-Rated Double Glazed Screens (30/30 rating) were installed within three number individual atria.
Komfort “Polar Vision” Double Glazed Partitions were installed to create individual office spaces and meeting rooms. With an acoustic performance rating of 46dB(Rw), this frameless partition system includes both non fire-rated and fire-rated designs, with the latter providing a 30/30 fire rating.
The Polar glazing system incorporates the patented Komfort “Bubble Joint” on non fire-rated glass which maintains glazed screen acoustic performance and enables it to achieve 1.5kN/m line load.
