Horizon Logistics Park, Harristown, St. Margaret’s, Swords, Dublin.
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.
Project Works include:
Special Works include:
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.
