This project involved the design of a 250m2 extension to an existing retail premises on a confined site. The concept of the design was to allow as much light into the premises as possible while also considering security. To maximise retail space no internal load bearing structure was included and due to the proximity of the existing structure, underpinning of the existing foundations will be required.    

Our involvement in this project included site survey, foul and water drainage design, architectural & structural design and planning submission.

APARTMENTS / RETAIL UNITS, WATERFORD, IRELAND
(Completed as a Design Engineer while working with Thomas Garland & Partners)

This structure consisted of a block of 19 apartments standing over six storeys high with retail units at ground level and basement. The site was built over an historic part of Waterford City, necessitating careful archaeological excavations which put the programme under intense pressure.

The structure comprised of a reinforced concrete frame with precast concrete units. Due to the architectural layout of the apartments, a considerable number of transfer structures were required. Our involvement in this project included, foul and surface water drainage design and structural design.

(Completed as a Resident Engineer while working with Thomas Garland & Partners & The Office of Public Works)

This concept of this project was of a sustainable building in the form of two curved blocks with a joining atrium on a 2.025ha site. The building has a green sedum roof which serves to attenuate rainfall on site by absorbing the rain and feeding it into a storage tank for use in toilet flushing and irrigation. Rainfall is further attenuated on site through the use of permeable paving in the car-park. 

The structure consisted of a curved reinforced concrete flat slab construction with stability cores on each end. The foundations were formed on rock and trench filled with concrete where the bedrock gradient changed with the slope of the site.
Our duties involved acting as the clients representative for the erection of the structure. We were responsible for the following;

  • Attendance at site & project meetings.
  • Monitoring of Civil & Structural works to ensure compliance with contract documents / drawings;
  • Liasing with other professionals on issues associated with the construction of the building;
  • Monitoring of Civil & Structural works to ensure quality in the finished structure and progress on-site;
  • Undertaking daily, weekly & monthly reports on Civil & Structural activities on site.
