HubSpot House

At home, at HubSpot House.

HubSpot’s expansion in Dublin Docklands includes the total renovation of the iconic old Wind Mill Lane site at 1 St John Rogerson’s Quay, completed by SONICA.   The new space accounts for approximately 112,000 sq. ft., bringing HubSpot’s total footprint in Dublin (affectionately known as DubSpot) to 185,000 sq. ft. 

The new building has achieved LEED platinum standard. Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a globally recognised standard for sustainability in buildings, and Platinum is the highest award level available.

LEED Platinum 

Hubspot House received the highest level of LEED certification based on building and design features including:

  • BER A3 rating
  • Rooftop photovoltaic (PV) panels
  • Energy efficient LED lighting throughout the building
  • Strong connectivity (WiredScore certified Platinum)
  • Optimised glazing providing natural daylight
  • Water efficient appliances and rainwater harvesting

The BER A3 rating was achieved using our Diffusion FanCoils with high efficiency low SFPs, coupled with Gilberts grilles throughout the building.

Invisible Grilles

Throughout the building there are work spaces with Gilberts invisible or concealed grilles set above the floating ceiling.

The GTD600 was used throughout and offers is the ‘high volume’ option that delivers increased volumes with lower relative pressure drop and noise levels. Despite the high volume output the design and low noise levels ensure that they are an invisible and integrated part of the ceiling design.

More information on the range of concealed grilles we offer, is available here.

Specified Style & Comfort

Comfort and style were high priority for JV Tierney Consulting Engineers.  Gilberts GSFA swirl diffusers with coanda plates, linear swirl diffusers and Diffusion fancoils were featured throughout the five floors in areas with exposed ceilings.  Gilberts Concealed Grilles (GTD600) were then used in areas with floating ceilings, they ensured delivery of the architects modern design and the efficient delivery of high volumes of fresh air throughout.  The grilles and fancoils were tastefully and efficiently installed to a very high standard by DMG Engineering, in a manner that delivered on the original vision of  JV Tierney Consulting Engineers, Henry J Lyons architects and SONICA, the project managers on the building.
