In 1976, Scott Tallon Walker were commissioned by the Dublin Port Company's predecessor, the Dublin Port and Docks Board (DP&DB), to design an office building with a strong visual presence in the port. The six-storey building, completed in 1982, sits on a raised podium with the top floor dedicated to plant and ancillary accommodation, while four floors below provide office space with spectacular views over the city. At the time of construction, the Board undertook extensive consultation on modern office configurations and the building was designed to embrace change and innovation. The structure is expressed externally in pre-cast concrete columns and beams.
