The story

LinkedIn are establishing their new international headquarters in a six storey office space located in Dublin (Wilton Place). With modern facilities located at the heart of Dublin it is critical that the solution offers ease and speed of installation. 

The solution

Core helped design and engineer a fully pluggable Modular Wiring solution which integrates the buildings complete general services power, lighting, DALI protocol and solar shading control system.

We provided a pre-wired Wieland Modular Wiring system for a flexible and labour saving Cable Management and Power Distribution solution, and we also supplied all fittings pre-wired and fully tested to reduce the installation costs, ensure the efficiency of the design and the reliability of the installation.

We used 63 Amp rated CMD Betatrack busbar for flexible underfloor power distribution throughout the facility with CMD Conti Connect desk power modules supplying power from the busbar to each individual desk maintaining a safe, unobtrusive, functional and elegant power solution to the 1,250 workstations. Combined both of our plug & play systems achieved up to a 70% labour saving.

Our Cable Management System – using OBO metal trays, baskets and ladders, reduced approximately 1,000 metres of trunking originally designed into the project, saving extra installation time and providing an aesthetically pleasing workspace.

The success

The turnkey solution provided helped our customers to deliver the specified solution on time and at optimised costs, exceeding the client’s requirements, and offering a beautiful high-end workspace to the 1,000 employees.
