Wieland makes a connection at The Reflector building

A modular wiring system and connectors from Wieland Electric are integral components in the new Reflector building, a landmark office and residential development on Dublin’s Grand Canal Dock.

The Reflector, owned by Park Developments Group, is a six-storey over basement building that extends to over 123,000sq ft and has been completed to the highest of standards that include LEED Gold V4 accreditation and A3 BER Certification.

The facility has an impressive water frontage, spanning over 75m of Hannover Quay and has extensive views of the inner dock in Dublin’s central business district.

Working alongside the consultant engineer, Ethos Engineering, and the installer, Winthrop Engineering, Core Electrical Ltd designed and locally supplied the unique modular wiring system for the project, integrating an intelligent, modular lighting control system to fulfil the requirements of the brief.

Core, Wieland’s exclusive distributor for building installation products across Ireland, utilised Wieland wiring systems to provide a fast, hassle-free installation that would reduce installation costs and future-proof the building. Wieland modular wiring and connection systems offer maximum performance and reliability, providing a fast, secure and flexible installation, meeting todays’ stringent requirements. Its inherent flexibility also means that any changes to the system can be accommodated quickly should the layout change at a later stage.

Structured wiring with ‘plug and play’ connectivity, supplied pre-tested and pre-assembled off site for easy connection, has been shown to generate savings of 70% in installation time resulting in a significant savings.

When this data is analysed intelligently, by considering the slightly higher capital costs of structured wiring compared to traditional wiring, there is still typically an average 30% saving on final installed cost.

The modular wiring and lighting control system at The Reflector has provided a solution that reaches the environmental and user comfort objectives of today’s modern office facilities to offer convenience, performance and future proofing in one touch.
