1 Burlington Road

Block A Mespil Road, a 7-storey office block over double basement (built on the site of the former Pelican House) was completed in Spring 2003 

Block B, Burlington Road (of similar height) is built on an adjoining green field site and was completed early 2004. 

The lower basements for blocks A and B are formed approximately 11 metres below street level and their construction involved the installation of 400 linear metres of secant piled wall around the perimeter of the site, the excavation of 64,000 cubic metres of soil and rock and the installation of substantial steelwork temporary works to support the secant piled wall. 

The superstructure comprises a steel frame with reinforced concrete “slimdeck” floors, clad with precast concrete, reconstituted stone panel and “Schuco” system glazing.
