REAL Studios Dublin Bank
Real Studios approached us with the opportunity to provide the exhibition fit out works on a project they had designed for Dublin Bank’s private meeting room’s refurbishment. The Hub’s scope of works consisted of metal-works, vinyl graphic production and application, production of museum grade showcases and the development of Dibond graphics panels. Dibond graphics panels were a large aspect of the scope of works. As a key aspect of the works, caution was required when transporting and fitting on-site. As a precaution, all Dibond graphic panels, metal frames and desks, were all dry fit, ready for their placement on-site and to maintain the on-site programme.
A challenging aspect of the design was the production and installation of multiple museum grade display cases. The quality of metal works and glazing required for such showcases require precision in the development phase and extreme care in the transportation and installation phase. The project being undertaken in Dublin meant extra caution was required to safely transport our items from the workshop in Redditch to Ireland. With a logistically challenging location, long haulage and cross ferry journeys were an aspect of transportation that needed factoring into delivery plans.

A delay in the base-build caused a knock on effect to the progression with the rest of the project, largely affecting the programme and production. As with any push-backs in the projects programme, re-working and strict management were crucial in the further development of the project and ensured that it could be completed within the correct time-frame. The on-site installation period was only 12-hours, with such a small window of time it was crucial that no mistakes could be made. All members of the team were working to a strict programme and were aware of the importance of the fit out running smoothly and to plan. With excellent time-management and the skilled work of those completing the fit-out, we successfully delivered the project on time and to an excellent standard.
