Maritana Gate is one of the prime mixed use developments in the South East of Ireland located on a prime city centre site on Canada Street in Waterford City. The development consists of 72 high-end residential apartments and 7,000m² of A class offices spaces overlooking People’s Park. The office spaces have been designed to cater for offices from 35m² to over 1,000m², with each building providing for own door entrances off high quality spacious lobbies to maximize each occupant’s corporate identity. The building used a steel frame, multi deck system and prefabricated reconstituted stone panels for speed of construction. Pre-fabricated kitchen and bathroom pods were used for all residential apartments and the offices accommodation incorporated raised access floors and suspended ceiling systems. Due to these new methods of construction the building was designed, constructed and handover in less than 14 months from start to finish.
