The current headquarters of Eircom, the main provider of fixed-line telecommunications services in Ireland, comprises seven storeys above the basement with a ten storey tower at the northeast end and an associated gross floor area of 24,000m².
Arup carried out the structural, mechanical, electrical and façade engineering of the building. It was also responsible for the transport and sustainability consulting and IT systems and building physics services.

Through a collaborative and integrated approach by the design team, this building gives the occupants control over their environments and optimises daylighting and the views.
A critical part of the Eircom project was the commissioning and handover of the completed building and systems to Eircom. Arup took a central, hands on approach during commissioning to ensure all systems were set to work correctly and were subject to exhaustive testing. This enhanced level of oversight was very important for the success of the building.
