Osprey were appointed to carry out the full design replacement of a combustible EPS cassette rain-screen to this student accommodation building in Dublin

Design solutions

The building sits prominantly on a main road in to Dublin and is well known locally. For planning reasons, the new façade had to replicate the original and we chose a bespoke Schueco curtain wall framework and new insulated aluminum panels with AWS windows.

  • Panels and windows were toggled into the curtain wall to create a seemless watertight facade
  • As the supporting steel framework had little or no fire protection, we appointed a specialist contractor to complete this in conjunction with the programmed façade works
  • Internal firestopping included the rebuilding of compartment walls and preparation of pipe penetrations
  • Balcony rainscreen elements and decks were also remediated to complete and compliment the new façade works.
