Velasco is destined to be one of Dublin’s Landmark Office Buildings, the building comprises of eight storeys of flexible and efficient floor plates, with an international LEED Gold Standard for environment and energy efficiency.  Full floor to ceiling glazing allows natural daylight throughout, creating a comfortable work environment.


Fresh air is provided by a new high efficiency thermal wheel heat recovery air handling unit.  The fresh air will be filtered and tempered with both heating and cooling as required.  There will be a four pipe fan coil air conditioning system located within the ceiling voids.

Heating will be achieved through high efficiency gas fired boilers installed to generate low temperature hot water (LTHW).  The offices will be served by a chilled water circuit served from a landlord central chiller.  High efficiency air cooled chillers shall be installed to generate chilled water (CHW).


Mains, cold and hot water will be piped to the various outlets and sanitary facilities to be provided in the office development.  A hot water storage cylinder will be provided in the sub-basement plantroom to meet the requirements of the sanitary facilities, future fit-out tea stations and cleaning facilities.


The project is being delivered using Building Information Modelling (BIM) to Level 2, our site team have coordinated all works onto the model issued at tender stage, adjusting the model to ensure all servicing is designed and placed to avoid clashes on site.
