Clearstream fitout wins prize for O’Leary Sludds

Enniscorthy Guardian - - NEWS - By ES­THER HAY­DEN

WEX­FORD ar­chi­tects O’Leary Sludds scooped at top award at the 2017 Fit Out Awards which took place last week.

The ar­chi­tects which are based in Strand­field Busi­ness Park in Ker­logue won the Fit Out Project of the Year – Small Of­fice un­der €500k for its de­sign of the Bard Clearstream Beta Of­fice in En­nis­cor­thy.

The Fit Out Awards set the bench­mark for ex­cel­lence in the ex­e­cu­tion of world­class fit outs. An in­de­pen­dent panel of recog­nised and ex­pert judges, rep­re­sent­ing Ire­land’s fit out in­dus­try, de­ter­mine the win­ners of the Fit Out Awards. The fo­cus is to de­liver a bal­anced judg­ing as­sess­ment from in­dus­try lead­ers who will bring their ex­ten­sive knowl­edge, en­thu­si­asm and ex­per­tise to the judg­ing process en­sur­ing that the win­ning en­tries are truly out­stand­ing and wor­thy of re­ceiv­ing a Fit Out Award.

The judges com­mended O’Leary Sludds project say­ing they ‘made sure to never lose sight of the key re­quire­ments of their clients. The at­mos­phere cre­ated by their de­sign had to be in­clu­sive, friendly and re­laxed, while also al­low­ing the in­clu­sion of cel­lu­lar of­fices for man­agers. In de­liv­er­ing these ob­jec­tives, this en­trant im­pressed our judges through its dis­play of pro­fes­sion­al­ism, adapt­abil­ity and flex­i­bil­ity’.

Cathal O’Leary of O’Leary Sludds said they were de­lighted to re­ceive the pres­ti­gious award. ‘Need­less to say it was a team ef­fort and we were de­lighted to have worked with South East based con­sul­tants to con­vert our vi­sion into a re­al­ity and de­liver a mod­ern of­fice space be­fit­ting a world class med­i­cal de­vice man­u­fac­turer. Many thanks to the rest of the team; MGM Part­ner­ship, John Creed & As­so­ci­ates and Prochem En­gi­neer­ing.’

The fit out of Bard Clearstream’s Beta Of­fice in­volved a com­mer­cial in­te­rior of­fice fit out with a cen­tral blue fea­ture which snakes its way through the space in or­der to break up the large ex­panse of open plan of­fice space.

The ‘snake’ cre­ates a com­mu­nal zone of in­for­mal meet­ing, print, stor­age and wa­ter cooler ar­eas where peo­ple will nat­u­rally come to­gether over the course of a work­ing day.

O’Leary Sludds Ar­chi­tects com­pleted a turnkey ser­vice which ranged from the co-or­di­na­tion of a full de­sign team to procur­ing all loose & fit­ted fur­ni­ture.
