William Fry Solicitors
Headquartered in Dublin and founded in 1847, William Fry employs over 320 legal and tax professionals and over 450 staff in total. It is one of Ireland’s leading corporate law firms with offices in Dublin, London, New York, and Silicon Valley. The company advises Irish and international companies in both the public and private sector, and regularly acts in cases involving other jurisdictions, such as the UK, US, Asia and wider Europe.
In 2015, they moved their Dublin HQ and over 420 staff from Fitzwilton House to 2 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, in the south docklands. Homan O’Brien Consulting Engineers directed the move, which was the largest office relocation in Dublin in 2014, to the distinctive Daniel Libeskind designed building, in which the Firm took approximately 100,000 square feet of top end high quality modern office space.
During the design of the new office space, Homan O’Brien used Keane Environmental’s high quality Diffusion Fan Coils and Gilberts Slots Diffuser Grilles to ensure it met the high standards of William Fry’s global firm. The Diffusion Fan Coils, which are known for their low noise and low specific fan power (SFP), were used to effectively control the temperature in each individual area of the building while the Gilbert’s Slot Diffuser Grilles were integrated into the ceiling design to allow for ventilation throughout the office space
