Construction of the ESB headquarters on Fitzwilliam St, Dublin 2, commenced in June 2017. The new 45,000 sqm development is set to become the most energy efficient and sustainable commercial office development in Dublin, aiming for near-zero energy consumption.
As the original headquarters was highly inefficient and costly to run, ESB felt it did not reflect the innovation and sustainability ethos of the energy provider.
In respect to the beautiful Georgian landscape, the retention and refurbishment of a number of protected structures are planned along with the construction of the new seven-story building. The new development will be more in line and respectful of the Georgian heritage in the area, and inspire more efficient and sustainable design in Dublin going forward.
