"I have been involved in a number of real estate initiatives for RBC in Dublin, but I must say that this one has represented the very pinnacle of excellence and I would like to thank you all for your efforts. I have taken very much a back seat, and an exceptional team have delivered something which I hope they are proud of and the Dublin business will enjoy for many years to come."
Darren Good, Director of Portfolio Strategy EMEA & Asia-Pacific
MDO developed a manifestation design based on RBC’s global charity Blue Water Project which is a 10-year global charitable commitment of $50 million to help provide access to drinkable, swimmable, fishable water, now and for future generations. This manifestation design is now being used as a brand standard across other RBC offices along with other key elements of the MDO design.
Working with JLL as project manager, Axis engineering for M&E, BuildCost for cost control and fitout contractor T&I Interiors, the project was completed on time, within a very tight programme, and has been highly commended by RBC’s Director of Portfolio Strategy, the Irish Managing Director and the staff.
