The OPW is the Irish government department that provides property, construction and procurement services to the public sector. For their offices at 3 Mayor St, Spencer Dock, Dublin, Farrell Furniture was tasked with delivering a customised furniture solution focussed on providing precise storage requirements and creating a cutting-edge, modern working environment.
After winning the initial contract, we agreed terms of engagement according to a thorough framework agreement. On a property that housed three separate departments over five floors, we are also required to provide meeting break-out and conference facilities for a staff of more than 400 people.
Each department had specific requirements and during our design phase, we consulted with each one, noting preferences in bespoke storage units, personal storage units and more. In specific terms, we installed 6/4/2 Person 1600×800 workstations. These were installed with mobile pedestals, over desk screens and side panels.
Finished in a beautiful Oak Veneer with solid edge lipping, we also supplied customised office and high dividing screens. A range of purpose-built storage solutions including high tambour units were supplied and fitted in line with the framework agreement.
The results are clear for all to see. OPW now has a fresh, modern, open-office environment planned and designed to the highest standards. With real wood interiors and practical and creative storage and meeting facilities, a new energy has been created, making the Spencer Dock offices a great place to work for OPW staff.
