Tesco Liffey Valley Project

J.V Tierney & Co. are proud to have carried out the Full M&E Services on the newly opened Tesco Liffey Valley retail store, and Boulevard. The new build consists of 100,000 sq ft retail unit on stilts served by an entrance atrium with 5 smaller retail units (including Costa Coffee, Vision Express and a new Holland & Barrett), with a carpark underneath. The store also includes a raised service yard and Dot Com home delivery service with charging for 15 vans.  Customers enter the store via a double lobbied atrium with travellators and lifts serving the 1st floor retail zone.

JVT provided full M&E design for the building and Boulevard including:

LED lighting with DALI dimming control

MV power distribution to rooftop transformer with integrated bund.

Full electrical power distribution

Protective service design including fire alarm, access control, CCTV and intruder alarm.

HVAC design including Cold Aisle Retrieval (CAR) which removes cold air from the refrigerated aisles to maintain space temperature.

LPHW design for boiler house serving AHU’s, air curtains, heaters and hot water systems.

Water services design to staff facilities and customer café.

Rain Water Harvesting for toilet facilities

The project delivery adopted a fast track approach so our M&E design included packaged plant solutions to be dropped onto a first floor structural deck allowing the M&E services plug directly into the building. Our packaged solutions include:

Fully packaged air handling units with integrated DX cooling.

Fully packaged boiler house with BMS control centre.

Fully packaged water tank room and booster pumps.

Fully packaged electrical switch room with remote metering of all sub distribution ways.

Fully packaged refrigeration plantroom

Canopy generator set.

The above works have contributed to the opening date for the store being pulled back from July 2018 to May 2018.
