The Point Village Development includes a 300,000 ft of shopping centre and Dublin's first 120m residential skyscraper, The Watchtower. MSA have provided fire engineering design on the entire development.
The Watchtower includes 150 exclusive luxury apartments and high speed glass lifts taking you to fine dining and a prestige bar with breathtaking views over the Dublin skyline. MSA have developed a performance based fire design for this landmark 33 storey building in Dublin. The single stair residential building is the first approved high rise building in the Dublin Docklands Development.
The steel structure throughout the entire development was also analysed to determine its ‘real’ response under fire conditions to determine the extent of fire protection required. The finite-element analysis reduced construction costs and added significant value to the project. This approach could not have been adopted without MSA’s specialist structural knowledge.
