Spencer Dock in Dublin’s financial district is a modern development of exclusive apartments designed by the well-known architects, Scott Tallon Walker. The OMC Group provided the metalwork solutions for the apartments which were sold off the plans.

Project Manager with OMC, Martin O’Boyle, oversaw the fabrication and erection of the steelwork for the balconies of the apartments and penthouse suites, along with the steel used to decorate the award winning gardens.


According to Martin O’Boyle, “These apartments were always going to be top of the range so we needed to use quality products throughout the entire development. We knew that all our steel needed to be hot dip galvanized and we wanted to go that bit further to protect the steelwork and increase its aesthetic value.”

“Galvacoat® was the chosen solution in this area, as the coating doesn’t chip or flake off over time and has UV protection and anti-graffiti properties making it a durable finish for steelwork.”


Martin O’Boyle commented that “Galco served as a one-stop shop for us during this project. Not only did they hot dip galvanize our steel ,but they coated and wrapped it for us too, delivering us a fully finished product.”

There were two different types of balconies built for the development – glass balconies and grated balconies. Both used hot dip galvanized steel coated with Galvacoat®.

The gardens and courtyards, which won a modern living design award, were decorated with steel gates, staircases and railings. All of the steel used throughout the plush development was hot dipped first and finished with a coating of Galvacoat®.
