Beckett House, is and 8 storey new build student accommodation development providing 393 bedrooms with a glamourous and extensive social space.
As close to Dublin's universities as it is to the city's best bars, restaurants and shops, Beckett House is designed to be smarter, brighter and better than all other student accommodation.
We relished the opportunity to bring our own brand of brilliance to this brilliant building in the heart of Dublin City Centre.
THE PROJECT OVERVIEW
This was a dream project for us, full of vibrant furnitur and innovative thinking. We were delighted to advise on and provide a complete residential and loose furniture package for Beckett House, resulting in a new style of student accommodation in the heart of Dublin City Centre.
Working in conjunction with the project architect, client, main contractor and fire consultant this vibrant project came with strict criteria and a strict deadline. The project included mixed usage from laundry rooms to study rooms, private cinema rooms to bedrooms and everything in between! The project involved an intense coordination with the fire consultants to ensure that all prodicts being provided meet the strict fire and safety regulations required for these spaces - a true test of our abilities to offer solutions for every space!
However, our team loves nothing more than a challenge, so we embraced the prospect of not only meeting, but exceeding, the challenges that came with this project.
The project was completed on time and on budget, to the full satisfaction of the client, architect and project management team. Of course, there was one downside - it made us more than a little jealous of the students who get to live and study here. We don't remember our own student accommodation ever looking quite so desirable!

THE SHEELIN SOLUTION
When people think of commercial interiors, offices are usually what come to mind. At Sheelin Group, however, we thrive on inspiring all types of environments and this residental and social space is a perfect example of how we offer solutions for every space, regardless of the industry or service. Our dedicated team really immersed themselves in this project and we are extremely proud of the result. Our solution was truly progressive, unifying vibrant design with functionality that allowed all interests to be created for.
As always, waste management and recycling were key considerations for us throughout, as was offering the client an ongoing and proactive aftersales service. We aim to be top of the class in these important subjects!
