The buildings occupied by the IT giant
Oracle are located in the huge EastPoint business center in Dublin.
Center Developments engaged Scott Tallon Walker to plan and design the business
center in 2000. The design concept envisaged the creation of a complex of
modern, economic, flexible and well-serviced buildings. Each building was given
a different form, but all used the same palette of materials. This is how the
design of a unique business park was created, situated in a beautiful,
picturesque setting on the Dublin Bay. Center with approximately 140,000 square
meters of office space. The office buildings of the complex are surrounded by a
large park with seaside walking paths, cafes, nurseries, an open-air gourmet
market and sports facilities. Over 50 companies have their headquarters in the
complex, and over 6,000 employees work here.
RENOVATION The buildings in EastPoint area occupied by
Oracle were built in stages between the
2008 and 2010. In 2016, all of them underwent a major renovation to give
them a more original shape, an effective and more practical form, as well as to
reduce energy consumption. Block A has undergone the most thorough
transformation. The basis for the transformation of the gray, nondescript
office building into the flagship Oracle building was the idea of giving the
building a geometric dynamics. Oracle Block A is a futuristic design,
environmentally friendly by reducing energy demand, original formally,
efficient and durable.
Rebuilt in the same year,
Oracle Block B has been designed as a futuristic, flexible and friendly
workplace. The main contractor was Mac Interiors, and the Meehan Associates
architectural studio was responsible for the arrangement. Glazing was installed
on each floor to ensure integration with the two twenty-meter canopies of the
atrium. Built-in automatic blinds in the roof and perimeter glazing are
electronically controlled. The use of intelligent functions allowed to reduce
energy consumption by 40% compared to the old office building. The building
uses an innovative lighting system using integrated and suspended
high-performance LED luminaires with daylight control. The luminaires are
equipped with a sensor to automatically dim the lights based on the natural
light levels during the day and the number of people in the room, to save
energy and reduce the overall carbon footprint of the building. On the roof,
photovoltaic panels were installed to supply the building with electricity, and
the glazing was equipped with automatic systems of solar-controlled blinds. The renovation of Oracle Block C with an area of 16,500 square meters gave the building a completely new character. This block had a data center supporting Oracle, which had to be continuously operational throughout the entire renovation process. The complete renovation of the façade with new curtain walls, limestone cladding and the entrance allowed for a complete change in the character of the building, which, apart from offices, also included a café, a rotating climbing wall and an interactive conference room equipped with the latest network infrastructure and audiovisual technology.
