In the summer of 2018, ROD opened our first North Dublin office in Northwood Court, Santry, as an investment in the future designed to support our clients, employees and long-term plans.
The response was universally positive. In addition to providing an ideal North Dublin location for in-person client and partner meetings, it brought our team closer to project sites in the region, improving our response times to client requests, issues and queries.
Our local staff were equally delighted as it offered many of them the option of leaving their cars at home and either walking, cycling or taking public transport to work.
Less than five years later, we have outgrown this first 1,800 sq. ft. office and moved to a new, larger location in Santry to meet our changing needs. Our new office is in Woodford Business Park, which is conveniently located only five minutes from Dublin Airport while also providing easy access to the M50, M1 and Dublin Port. The office accommodates up to 50 employees and includes two generously sized meeting rooms and a staff canteen.
Commenting on the move, ROD Managing Director, Jim Thorpe, said: “The new office in Woodford Business Park strengthens ROD’s presence in North Dublin and provides a solid base from which to plan our future growth and attract new talent. In doubling our square footage, we have been able to provide a more spacious and high-tech environment for clients and to create more spaces for our team to collaborate outside of a traditional conference room or desk arrangement.”
He added: “An important part of improving the work-life balance for our people is making the commute to work on office days easier – it means greater flexibility, more time, reduced stress and reduced commuting costs – all important considerations as we strive, as a company, to achieve our sustainability goals.”
