The large increase in electrical and steam power required by the growth of the Guinness brewery in the first decades of the 20th century, led to the decision in 1944 to build a new central boiler house and power station at the St. James’s Gate Brewery. The architect appointed was F. P. M. Woodhouse, with consultation from the engineering firm of Sir Alexander Gibb and Partners.
