Featured Project

Capital Dock is strategically located in the heart of Dublin’s south docklands on one of the largest previously undeveloped waterfront sites in the Irish capital.

Completed in 2018, the development delivers 60,000 sqm of mixed-use contemporary office, residential and retail units on a 4.8-acre site, offering a world-class visionary campus.

The unique urban quarter’s stunning views of the River Liffey and Grand Canal Dock are home to 35,000 sq m of office space and 190 high quality multi-family homes, including a 23-storey residential tower which is the tallest in Dublin. The planned Dodder Bridge, to be delivered by Dublin City Council, will considerably enhance transport links to the Capital Dock site, strengthening the development as one of the most accessible sites of the city. Elsewhere, the Port Tunnel will provide access to Dublin Airport, the M50 peripheral motorway and main suburbs of the capital on both sides of the Liffey.

We were delighted to support Kennedy Wilson on this scheme, with our team providing civil and structural engineering services and construction-related health and safety advisory input for the project, assisting in the creation of a new vision in Dublin’s thriving central business district.

Seven Separate Buildings

The Capital Dock development consists of seven separate buildings, ranging from three to 23 storeys, and a new public square – all constructed over a two-level basement. The site is bound on the north by the Liffey; on the east by the confluence of the Liffey and Dodder plus the Grand Canal; and to the south and west by existing development.


Office accommodation is arranged across two eight-storey and one seven-storey buildings with roof terraces.

Two of these buildings comprise steel frame structures with slim floor beams and composite deck floors, designed to allow for maximum flexibility for internal sub-division, with the structural steel required weighing in at 2,200 tonnes. The third building utilises a concrete frame with post-tensioned concrete floors, constructed over existing retained structures below ground level.


Three residential buildings; seven storeys in height, 10 storeys and the third a 23 storey feature tower at the north east corner of the site; were constructed from reinforced concrete frames with post-tensioned concrete floors. These buildings incorporate retail, café and community services facilities at ground level, and offer resident amenity services at first floor, including a gym, cinema room, conservatory, residents lounge and both business and management suites.

Finally, a three-storey pavilion building accommodates two restaurants which offer diners stunning views of the Liffey on one side and the new public square on the other.


Capital Dock’s stunning residential offering won ‘Housing Project of the Year’ at the 2019 Irish Building Design Awards (IBDA) and ‘Residential Project of the Year – Large’ at the 2019 Construction Industry Awards, before going on to win the ‘Residential’ award at the Irish Construction Excellence (ICE) Awards in 2020.

Waterman Moylan projects shortlisted for five Irish Construction Excellence awards

We are delighted that our projects, 10-12 Hanover Quay, Cadenza and Woodside Social and Affordable Residential Development, have been nominated under five categories at the upcoming Irish Construction Excellence (ICE) Awards.

The Awards recognise excellence in Ireland’s contracting sector, rewarding companies who strive to move the industry forward across a wide range of categories.

10-12 Hanover Quay – Award category: ‘Fit Out or Refurbishment Over €30m’
This challenging project involved the removal of existing building elements and the conservation and underpinning of historical structures in a site subject to tidal influences from the River Liffey and adjacent to the Grand Canal Dock.

The overall development consists of a new five-storey steel frame building, providing just over 6,800 sqm of Grade A office space, together with the restoration and conversion of an historic quayside warehouse to provide a basement and two upper floors also for office use.

Waterman Moylan was the Project Supervisor Design Process for the scheme, contributing to a safe and successful delivery of this exceptional development.

Cadenza – Three award categories: Main project shortlisted for ‘Commercial €10m to €60m’ and ‘Specialist or Specialist Services Contract over €2m’, Bulk Excavation shortlisted for ‘Specialist or Specialist Services Contract – €1m to €2m’
Located on Dublin’s Earlsfort Terrace, this 16,583 sqm commercial development comprises a six-storey office building above a lower ground floor and a single level basement.

With sustainability central to the design, the project is targeting LEED Platinum certification, and includes a deep stone veil and stone fins to the street frontages to create shading, also incorporating a green wall with deep recessed glazing to its rear façade. Emphasis was placed on constructability, as the development incorporates an existing apartment complex and adjoins listed buildings on its Earlsfort Terrace side.

Our team provided civil and structural engineering consultancy services for the development.

Woodside Social and Affordable Residential Development – Award category: Social & Affordable Housing Over €5m
A collaboration between Respond and Tuath Approved Housing Bodies, the Woodside development includes the first purpose-built cost-rental homes in Ireland. Offering 50 cost-rental homes as part of an overall development of 155
social and affordable homes, this scheme also incorporates a community facility, along with a variety of green spaces.

The homes on offer in the wider development include a blend of one-, two- and three-bedroom properties, whilst the 50 cost-rental homes are two-bedroom apartments.

Our team provided multidisciplinary support for the scheme, spanning civil, structural and building services engineering.

Award winners will be announced at a special Gala Night taking place on 27 April at the Convention Centre Dublin.
