Design Team: Jennings O'Donovan & Partners
Our Company commenced the construction of this 17,000ft² extension to the already existing workshop in February 2017. The construction generally comprised of reinforced concrete pad and strip foundations; solid rising walls; a structural steel portal frame; prestressed concrete floor slabs and precast stair units; external wall & roof insulated Kingspan cladding; internal partitions constructed of light weight blockwork and metal stud partitions; powder coated aluminium window and door units and all M&E installations.
Associated site works included 2 No. Loading bays complete with dock levellers; an extensive 1350m2, reinforced concrete loading/transport yard; landscaping; perimeter fencing; fuel storage areas; 50 carparking spaces and a reinforced concrete retaining wall.
It was of the utmost importance that the day to day business of the client was not affected and the site was a ‘live’ occupied complex which remained fully operational whilst these works progressed. The safety of both our direct employees/sub-contractors together with employees of the existing estate and public was of the utmost importance and was provided through careful planning and monitoring of procedures.
