Ballyogan Depot

Ballyogan Environmental Services Depot is a newly constructed facility for Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council.

The Depot Administration Building is a modern energy efficient office block constructed using a high percentage of sustainable materials (soft wood timber). It demonstrates the feasibility of using structural timber elements to construct a multi storey framed building while achieving architecturally aesthetic results. This form of construction, using timber beam and column framing for a multi storey building is in our experience unusual if not unique in Ireland.
