Lights, Camera, Action!
The Abbey Theatre, also known as the National Theatre of Ireland, in Dublin, is one of the country’s leading cultural institutions. First opening to the public on 27 December 1904, and despite losing its original building to a fire in 1951, it has remained active to the present day. Since July 1966, the Abbey has been located at 26 Lower Abbey Street, Dublin 1.
Here we have a project, which required us to create a homely atmosphere for staff, audiences, artists, tourists, local business communities and creative teams.
The project consisted of electrical work, flooring, decoration, alterations and creating banquet seats. The project had to complement the Abbey Theatre and its surroundings. The project was completed on time and with-in budget.
The Peacock Café opened to the public in early October 2015 with seating capacity for 40 people. The vision for the Peacock Café was that it would become an attractive destination in its own right and become an integral part of the Abbey Theatre’s visitor experience. According to the below quotes, the brief was fully met.
According to visitdublin.com, the peacock café is “a vibrant, open and energetic space that embodies the spirit of the Abbey, a world-renowned theatre, the Peacock Café celebrates Irish food in a modern and contemporary way”.
According to dineindublin.ie, “the Peacock Café provides an engaging and homey atmosphere that makes you want to sit down and order some tea, while you talk to the person next to you”.

The Building Control Amendment Regulations 2013 are due to come into law from the 1st March 2014. Current legislation governing building control in Ireland dates back to the Building Control Act, 1990. This applies to new buildings, extensions, material alterations and changes of use of buildings in commercial and residential property. The Building Control (Amendment) Regulations 2013 (the "Regulations") are to be read in conjunction with existing Building Control legislation. The main documents covering the new regime are SI No 80 of 2013 - Building Control (Amendment) Regulations 2013 and the new Code of Practice for Inspecting and Certifying Building Works.
This new legislation will have a very significant effect on the way building design and construction is managed and implemented. It will allow competent professionals greater control of inspection and provide a chain of responsibility throughout the design and construction process. There will be a direct impact on professionals, including engineers, architects and building surveyors as well as relevant members of the professional design team, together with owners, builders and building control authorities.
The new Regulations include new responsibilities which include new commencement notice requirements, new certificates of undertaking and compliance, new responsibilities for designers and a new role for an Assigned Certifier, new penalties and new forms for appointment ("notices of assignment") for competent Designers, Assigned Certifiers and Builders.
The new roles and responsibilities are set out in the new Code of Practice for Inspecting and Certifying Building Works.
Under the new Regulations, the Building Owner is ultimately responsible to ensure compliance with Building Regulations and must appoint competent Designers, the Builder and the A ssigned Certifier
