ConsenSys is a global block-chain technology company building the infrastructure, applications, and practices that enable a decentralised world. Founded in only 2014, with the Dublin “mesh” opening in just 2018, this is a company that has seen rapid growth. Until February 2019 the team had been working in a shared office set up, and when their time came to scale up, SONICA were appointed to fit out their new space.
The new office was identified in mid-2018; a ground floor, open-plan space located in Shelbourne Plaza, Ringsend Road, Dublin 2. The existing unit was bare shell & core and had never been used to house corporate offices. Our Operations team quickly moved to develop a rapid-pace programme of works to encompass the completion of CAT A landlord fit out & CAT B office fit out works. This included construction of a brand-new toilet block, alterations to existing architectural elements and new works as required to reinvent the space.The result is a truly modern environment worthy of a company whose mission is to “enable the progress to the next generation of the Web”. The office has an industrial style and each desk & workspace is completely customisable to cater to any individual’s preference to sit, stand, collaborate etc.
This is an office that truly sets the tone for workspace design and went on to WIN the 2020 ICE – Irish Construction Excellence Awards for Office Fit out Project of the Year (Value under €5M)
