The floor space is tiny inside.The lift shaft and stairs take up a hugh amount of space.
Demolish it,build something more in keeping with the area such as a four /five story building with a decent design (Georgian or neo Classical facade)NO more crap Industrial estate office type buildings that have ruined Dublin over the last 40 years!Especially along the quays.
Plenty of empty/unfinished office buildings down the docklands they could move into!

ah it should stay, its unique, a great example of its type, nevermind its inefficiencies, as with any listed building its worth keeping,

if this were commerical company that built it they'd just moved elsewhere and build a new place,but siptu will say they don't have enough money and they want to keep their site.

One narrow office around each corner. Maybe ten feet of office space plus corridor. From experience.

I was watching foreign correspondent by chance and they had a show about the north and I noticed these tall buildings in the back round they look very similar to Liberty Hall with the wave roof does anyone know the buildings I'm talking about I think they where social housing or something around the 60's 70's?

The multi-colourred pictures are brilliant. I agree it should be kept, at least its just a bit different.

Looks fantastic should definitely be kept on. The lighting on the spire during Irelands European presidency should also have been reinstated on a permanant basis

Is there some competition for these lights?
Is this testing?

That was a sort of traveling installation, it moved around different cities. It did look amazing, I could see it from my gaff in Meath!

That lighting exhibition looks fantastic. It illustrates to me the value of retaining Liberty Hall as it is rather than demolishing it as others would like. Liberty Hall could also have themed lighting a la the Empire State Building.

I still think liberty should be rebuilt or at least given a major refurb. If you get a look at it close it looks like the building is ill, its very worn looking.

Those pictures of Liberty Hall are fantastic. Unfortunately the building itself is bizarrely designed and I can't imagine many benefits accruing to SIPTU to keep it. I think a major facelift is in order but I've never had a problem with its height or design. The roof, described before as "flippant", does contrast nicely with the Custom House dome - and the two buildings have formed an endearing Laurel and Hardy partnership over the last few decades.

knock it!!!!
and put the core next to the lane... in the middle of the building but on the outside edge
You cannot seriously think of keeping it... but having said that...
(I'm really hoping the fire consultant doesn't go all crazy and make a core half the size of the building) The success of this whole thing will depend on how small they can get the stairs and how few elevators ect they have oh and a performance based disabled refuge...

Then there is the facade...

But I don't think they even consider a lodge until the station is sorted...

the custom house is hardly the most efficient building or the most utilised are you going to knock that no, neither should you knock liberty hall

It's called aging well...
I know if I had the choice of a building that was built to last hundreds of years or 50 and I had to demolish and rebuild all the time I know which one I would choose...
Why do you think the banks always own some of the longest lasting buildings after government? (maybe they have the money for good maintenance)

No doubt Liberty Hall is over utilised.

Speaking of liberty -
I reckon the most "over utilised" building in Dublin is located alongside The Royal Canal. Its always in the news for this very reason.

It may not be efficient in its current form, hence its imminent demolision.

However it was built to last in the 19th century and while I've never been in it, I have been told its interior is inescapable.

It has aged well and the banks are welcome to it.
In fact, I'd love to see some of our top bankers reside there for a spell.

Let them sing jingle jangle to each other there.

I agree we should put them in a glass box together and watch the fireworks from the bridge...
Give them both the same job to do and they can review each others work...
