UBER Office | Limerick | 2016

Global Expansion Never Rests

The US based company Uber is the global innovator and disruptor for the ride share industry. Uber averages 5.5 million rides a day and is located in over 600 different countries. In their never ending, global expansion Uber has found a great location in the centre of the city of Limerick to provide it services in Ireland.

The focus of the office is to have an environment that is professional and promotes creativity. To get this Uber wanted to modernize the layout by putting in a full floor of training areas and breakout space for all employees to collaborate and enjoy.

In 2016, our team was appointed this project in collaboration with CBRE, Healy & Partners Architects and Metec. Within 3 months we completed the 24,000 sq. fit-out which was vibrant and elegant. We provided the innovative staff with a new work environment of 15 fully AV functional meeting rooms, 2 comms rooms, 9 phone booths and kitchen and break out areas on all floors. The space also incorporates open plan desk areas for approximately 300 staff to go along with the full floor of training areas and break out rooms. A key feature of the design was exposed services and acoustic rafts, which were installed as the property was taken from a shell condition to a fully finished and furnished space.

Scale and Safety

This project needed us to co-ordinate and manage a large team of professionals under a design and build approach. It also involved a large-scale refurbishment and fit out of a bustling existing city centre location, with all the logistical challenges that entails. The staff still followed health and safety protocols for a city centre environment and worked seamlessly to provide the new EMEA centre of excellence for UBER.

The project was delivered in less than 10 weeks both on budget and on time, allowing our client to meet their launch date. The project has reached its goal of providing an innovative work environment that can live up to the Uber reputation. Today Uber Limerick office is an inviting social work place where freedom of creativity is easy to find.
