Project Fitzwilliam 

Redevelopment of ESB's Head Office in Dublin 2

About Project Fitzwilliam 

ESB commenced redevelopment of its Fitzwilliam Street site in Dublin 2 in June 2017. This new 45,000 sqm development will deliver a near zero energy building, one of the most efficient and sustainable commercial office developments in Dublin city, while sensitively respecting and enhancing the Georgian streetscape. 

The project involves the demolition of the existing buildings, the retention and refurbishment of a number of protected Georgian structures and the construction of a new seven-storey office block as designed by internationally acclaimed Grafton Architects and O’Mahony Pike Architects.    

Key Features of Project Fitzwilliam

  • The new development will be designed with sustainability as a core principle, will achieve a BER of A and a sustainability standard of BREEAM Excellent. 
  • The development will feature innovative, sustainable technologies which will reduce carbon emissions and running costs; for example rain water attenuation and recycling will reduce water consumption 70%.
  • The project will result in significant benefits to the local and national economy including the creation of almost 500 jobs during peak construction over approximately three years.
  • The new building will double existing capacity and will accommodate an additional 1,400 workspaces.
