Office Fit-Out, Claregalway, Co. Galway

Attesting to our commitment to sustainability our new Head Office is the epitome of green construction. From our own

in-house design stage through to construction we integrated the use of recycled & sustainable building materials throughout the office construction.


Office comprises of 4 number recycled shipping containers stacked within a warehouse. Containers were insulated and finished internally to high standard with the use of recycled & sustainable building materials where possible, i.e. use of sustainable timber as a wall finish as opposed to plastering, and recycled carpet. Highlights of project are staircase made from recycled pallets, use of recycled railway sleepers for desks, uncommon internal finishes such as OSB board, recycled corrugated sheeting and recycled slate.


The finished project has many superlatives many which our team at Kesel strive for and our proud of; quality, sustainability, service and productivity
