Irish Life’s new Customer Centre in Dundalk taking shape
Irish Life’s new Customer Centre in Dundalk is really taking shape.
Following expansion plans announced in February 2017, construction is nearing completion at the Finnabair Business Park, where the new office space will be located. Ground was broken on the project last July with the estimate at the time that the building would be complete within 13 months.
That schedule looks to be well on course for Irish Life to move into the facility.
The building has been designed by leading Dublin based architects, Wejchert Architects, and is being delivered by main contractor, Stewart Construction. The developer/landlord for this project is The Rooney O’Dea Partnership.
The new site area is 1.6 hectares with an office size of 45,000 sq ft (net). The new building will be an open plan office space over three floors, including associated car park spaces, bicycle parking and landscaping. It will be of the highest environmental standards, with LEED Gold accreditation, and will also have state of the art technology to support Irish Life’s customer services strategy. Irish Life employees will have access to an in-house gym and a bespoke quiet relaxation area in the building’s atrium.
Irish Life has operated a Customer Centre in Dundalk since 2002 and is a key employer in the area, employing 190 staff as of last summer. All current Irish Life employees in Dundalk will be based in the new building upon completion.
