Wieland links in to new HQ for social network

Published:  02 January, 2018

Wieland, Linkedin

Wieland Electric has supplied a wide range of its popular gst electrical connectors for the new €85 million LinkedIn international headquarters development in Wilton Place, Dublin. The electrical system for the project was designed and locally supplied by Core Electrical, Wieland’s exclusive distributor across Ireland, utilising Wieland connectors to provide a fast, hassle-free installation that would reduce installation costs and future-proof the building.

The new five-storey building, which took over two years to complete, is the first office development outside the US that has been purpose-built for the social networking site LinkedIn and it houses a number of perks for its employees. Across six floors the building includes work spaces for more than 1,000 employees, a restaurant quality café, a state-of-the-art gym and fitness studio, bike parking for 250 bikes, electric car charging points, a music room and a rooftop barista with an extensive roof terrace with unique views of the city.

The new building utilises a fully pluggable modular wiring solution that integrates all the building’s general services, power, lighting, DALI protocol and solar shading building control. Wieland’s plug-and-play systems also power the flexible underfloor to desk power distribution, which was provided by Core as well. The result is a safe, unobtrusive and functional power solution to the 1,250 workstations that has also achieved up to 70% savings in labour.
