About the event

Project Fitzwilliam comprises the demolition of the pre-existing ESB building on Fitzwilliam Street Lower, retention and refurbishment of existing Georgian buildings, piling to the perimeter of the site and construction of the new development.  

This new mixed-use development will incorporate offices, retail, meeting space and a new pedestrian route leading through the site from Fitzwilliam Street Lower to a plaza area on James Street East.  

The refurbishment works include nine protected structures within the development boundary.  Three of these will be refurbished as office space and four will change use from existing office to residential. Protective works will be carried out to all adjoining protected structures during the demolition and redevelopment works.

This project is being constructed on a tight site in the city centre with over 100 neighbours and the site team have brought their project management skills to the fore in constructing this project.

PJ Hegarty were appointed as the Main Contractor on the project by the Client and have been onsite since 2017 with a shell and core due to finish in 2020.

Its a great opportunity to see this challenging project at first hand!
