FIT OUT CLIENT OF THE YEAR – DENTAL CARE IRELAND

Established in October 2014 by brothers Colm and Kieran Davitt, Dental Care Ireland offers a new approach to the provision of dental care in Ireland.

The company’s strategy is to acquire and invest in local dental practices and develop them in partnership with the incumbent dentist.

Throughout the appointment and design process, both Colm and Kieran have put huge trust and confidence in the Design Team and all Consultants involved in the rollout of DCI.

Without hesitation they are there to support and are proactive throughout each stage, progressing the projects from Concept through to completion on site.

They place great value in all the team and this is evident in the progress of their sites.

They are progressive in their thinking and understand and embrace the benefit of the support, advice and guidance of the Professional team they have appointed.

FIT OUT PROJECT OF THE YEAR – HOSPITALITY – FEATHERBLADE

We are delighted to have Featherblade Restaurant located in No. 51B Dawson Street in Dublin 2, shortlisted in the hospitality category.

Featherblade was a new venture for two friends, Jamie O’Toole and Chef Paul McVeigh. Their aim for their new restaurant was simple, just one permanent item on the menu, Featherblade steak and sticking to the principle of simple and affordable.

FIT OUT PROJECT OF THE YEAR – RETAIL – DENTAL CARE IRELAND – ASHBOURNE

Engaged from the initial setup of Dental Care Ireland, Mortar & More were asked to develop a Brand Standard for all DCI practices which would rollout across Ireland.

With DCI Ashbourne the first practice to open, Mortar & More were asked to take the project to site from Detail Design, Tender to Completion.

The essence for the design was to create a space which would appeal to all age groups, provide an environment which was modern yet comfortable in the public spaces and surgeries which had subtle references to the brand and provided the clinical space necessary.

Throughout the process Dental Care Ireland progressive in moving the project forward and we are thrilled to see DCI Ashbourne shortlisted in the retail category!
