The Cat B fit out in Dublin for Pokémon’s new office has completed. This phase of the project to a create a new European office has finished considerably later than planned, with delays to the main building’s development being hampered by the Covid pandemic, shutting down the site intermittently over a one year period. Once the Cat B team got on site, works progressed smoothly despite issues with lengthening lead times caused by unprecedented demand for materials and product post-Covid. Careful project planning and management ensured that the project had been a huge success
Tim Collins, Managing Director of Collins McKay commented “I can’t think of another project in the past 25 years has faced such challenging circumstances with Covid shutting down the development site and subsequently creating resource issues for the developer. By monitoring the situation and inspecting the Dublin site, we were able to provide Pokémon with realistic forecasts for the commencement of their fit out. Time was well spent pre-start of the Cat B works to put contingencies in place for continuing issues once Covid restrictions has eased and these proved invaluable in ensuring that the project ran smoothly”.
