In the centre of Beirut, we helped our clients achieve planning permission for a multi-storey office development with a deep basement that provides several levels of parking space. Our concept design was taken forward as part of a Design & Build contract involving local engineers.We focused on solutions that work hard without adding complexity. The building's concrete frame helps to moderate the internal environment as part of an integrated services strategy. A large central atrium maximises daylight penetration into the office spaces. The resulting heat gain is counteracted by air conditioning in all occupied areas, including the atrium's ground floor level and walkways.An elegant bespoke roof adds visual drama to the conventional structure.

In November 2009, Ericsson’s Dublin staff occupied four leased buildings at two locations. With leases due for renewal in June 2010, the client wished to refurbish two of the properties to accommodate all employees in one area and surrender the remaining ones.Ramboll's services engineers were asked to identify the most appropriate buildings for refurbishment as well assessing existing and future services provision. The new services design was implemented at Ericsson's headquarters — a 1960s precast concrete structure and at the more modern Boole House, built in the 1980s. Original drawings and existing information for both buildings was incomplete, making assessment of the services more challenging. Existing services for the HQ ran underneath egg-crate flooring, mak ...
