Challenges

• 200 square meter installation (PANDOMO W 1 on walls)

Situation
Google’s European Headquarters in Dublin houses technical, sales and operations support for customers in more than 50 countries and employs 2,500 people. The first floor of the Gordon House Google office building required a finished rapid drying sand and cement screed system to accept PANDOMO K 1. The upper ground floor elevator lobby needed mechanical preparation and pre-leveling using ARDEX K 15 HB. This lobby area is central meeting point and through way for staff and visitors in a busy office environment.

Solution
ARDEX Ireland created custom PANDOMO colors requested by the architects for the floor and wall designs. With on-site support, a detailed specification was issued in relation to base preparations to ensure product compatibility. ARDEX A 38 was installed in the first floor lobby. With its unique rapid drying qualities it provided a perfect base to install PANDOMO K 1. The result produced a visually impressive main entrance to Google Gordon House and has attracted significant positive reactions from staff and visitors.
Based on the successful PANDOMO installation in Gordon House, Reddy Architecture specified PANDOMO for the second phase of renovations in their Gasworks Building in September 2013.
This building will incorporate ARDEX PANDOMO K 1 and PANDOMO W 1 in the main entrance area solidifying an ongoing successful partnership with the Google organization.
