The construction of an industrial facility consisting of a 92,000 sq.ft. warehouse, with a 20,000 sq.ft. office, along with an external car park, service yard, ESB substation and associated services. The warehouse was built using a double steel portal frame with a 12m haunch height, this was then clad with Kingspan KS1000 wall and roof cladding with a large proportion of roof lights and AOV. The warehouse floor slab was poured to a FM1 tolerance (TR 34). The office consisted of a two storey RC frame outboard of the warehouse, with stone cladding, curtain walling and punch windows and a CAT B fit-out.
Site strip of topsoil and subsoil was subject to Archaeological supervision due to a ring fort adjacent to the site. Works were also carried out in close proximity to the runway at Dublin Airport, requiring co-operation with the DAA and IAA as well as the Aviation regulator, owing to the use of cranes on site.
mac carried out a lime cement soil stabilisation to the site as an alternative to the specified excavate and fill methodology proposed by the Engineer. This significantly reduced the amount of muck/soil excavated and transported off site and imported granular fill. This resulted in programme benefits, environmental benefits and significantly reduced truck movement in a busy live industrial park.
This project was completed by our Dublin team #TEAMmac
mac were selected directly by the client after a tender process through KSN for which they were very competitive. Due to our good relationship built-up on our project on Baldonnell, JSA had no issues recommending mac-group to the client. As the usual challenges arose, such as a couple of sub-contractors under performing, mac to be fair dealt with them straight away. This also led to a few programme issues but again the mac team took on the challenge and delivered on time. Communication was excellent to the design team & especially myself, regardless of any issues good or bad.
I found the mac team very co-operative and great to deal with. I also liked the fact that solutions/alternative ways were always put forward for review and if the site team saw something that wasn’t right or that they were not happy with such as workmanship, it was highlighted to us rather than ignored. I would have no issues recommending mac to others.
