Alucraft wins Specialist Contractor at the Schüco Excellence Awards 2023
We are proud to have won the award for Specialist Contractor at this year’s Schüco Excellence Awards.
The winning project, Spencer Place, designed by Henry J Lyons Architects for Ronan Group Real Estate, includes a 200-bed hotel, restaurant, retail units, and 46,500m2 of LEED platinum-rated office accommodations in separate blocks over a common 3-storey basement.
Working as part of the team with Main Contractor PJ Hegarty & Sons, we delivered 24,000m2 of architectural glazing on this Grade A workspace for the end user Salesforce, making this building a landmark feature on Dublin’s riverfront. The façade was fabricated using the Schüco UCC 65 SG unitised system along with ground floor areas in the FW60+ system and ADS doors.
Ronnie Mills, Alucraft Ltd. Managing Director said:
We are extremely proud to receive the Specialist Contractor award. The Spencer Place project is not only the most extensive façade package undertaken in Irish history, but also represents a striking glazed façade in modern architectural design.
At Alucraft, we work closely with our clients, partners, and suppliers by collaborating at every stage from early engagement to project completion. This award is a fantastic achievement and recognises the teams’ efforts in overcoming technical and complex requirements through innovative solutions. Well done to everyone involved throughout this project.
The judges praised the leading role that Alucraft Ltd took in successfully delivering this prestigious and complex project. They were especially impressed by the specialist contractor’s resourcefulness and ingenuity in adapting ‘off-the shelf’ façade components to achieve the desired aesthetic and performance requirements.
