Dundrum Town Centre – Buildings 3 & 4

Buildings 3 & 4, which comprise 10 & 11 levels incorporating car park, office and retail functions, were constructed in two stages by different main contractors. The initial stage, comprising 6 levels, was constructed as part of the main shopping centre development and was completed in 2005. These buildings were later extended in 2007/2008, under a separate contract, when an additional 4/5 levels were added. Major structural alterations were required to the existing levels to accommodate tenant requirements, including retrofitting lifts, stairs and escalators, which had to be completed while the lower levels units were occupied.
