This project involved the redevelopment of the site of the former Canada House offices, a prestigious site on the corner of Earlsfort Terrace and St. Stephen's Green, Dublin 2.
Comprising a floor area of approximately 4,950sqm, the new five-storey over 2 level basement was designed using a bonded post-tensioning flat slab.
ClearTech's scope covered the design, supply and installation of the post-tensioning solution.
In addition to providing post-tensioning at the design and build stage, we were also asked by AerCap to design and retrofit a new communications stair throughout the building.
This initially involved PTSI (post tensioning site investigation) exposing the post tensioning and creating epoxy anchorages and cutting the cables.
By optimising the post tensioning and developing a smart solution, ClearTech enabled the client to avoid the need for a full stell frame retrofit to basement which would have had a knock-on effect of losing all the car parking facilities in the building.
