A Bridge creates New Connections.
The project Google Link Bridge is about the construction of a 26 m long, Y-shaped link bridge connecting the three Google Headquarter buildings in Dublin (Google Docks, Gasworks Building and Gordon House).
GIG carried out the building project as main contractor. This included the steel construction, the entire bridge glazing, stainless steel soffits and the adaption to the existing buildings, whereas some services such as ventilation, electrics, lighting elements were executed by our local partner.
A wind tunnel test was conducted specially for this project in order to assess the hight wind speeds that prevail between the buildings and therefore, to dtermine the additionally applied loads to both the bridge and the facade.
