Hostelworld contacted Ardmac to fit-out the company’s Irish headquarters in Central Park, Sandyford, Dublin. Hostelworld wanted a fresh, contemporary workspace with custom-made joinery and specialist solutions including a reception counter that doubles as a coffee shop, and a bar that is accessible from the reception.

The architectural specifications on the project required a very high level of quality, and the architect was regularly present on site to confirm any setting out and design changes. This ensured that the project ran smoothly.

The floors above Hostelworld’s offices were occupied throughout the project, so noisy works were scheduled out-of-hours to minimise disruption to the other occupants.

The complete fit-out project comprised open-plan workspaces, cellular offices, meeting rooms, breakout areas, and tea points. A new reception was installed with a custom-made desk and feature walls with specialised joinery. The fit-out programme met all milestones and was handed over on schedule.

“Through the life of the build I have been consistently impressed by the quality of the construction and the delivery of the desired vision. Great credit goes to Ardmac for the meticulous planning and resolute execution of the project – their exceedingly high standards, an obsession with detail, as well as the tenacity to see the job through.”
