The Mountpark Logistics Hub project was a JCT 2005 Design and Build to construct and fit out a Logistics warehouse with 9,000 sq. ft. office and welfare area over two floors.
The building comprised of Steel Frame double portal frame founded on pad foundations, Kingspan composite wall and roof cladding, AOV’s to warehouse roof, Siphonic drainage system, metal deck & concrete office 1st & 2nd floor slabs, 30,000 sq ft warehouse mezzanine, FM2 laser warehouse floor slab, 22 Dock Levellers and shelters including 4 Euro docks, concrete service yard. Permeable Asphalt carpark area for 150 cars, Electrical Vehicle charging for 6 vehicles, Asphalt access roads and grasscrete fire tender route.
The site areas involved a full ground solution offered by mac-group for Lime & Cement stabilisation achieving a CBR of 15%. The earthworks and ground improvement works were circa 23,000m3 of material being reengineered to achieve building and external works plateau areas from site won materials from onsite borrow pits. External Landscaping involved a site area of circa 8 acres for the provision of new public open space and walkways including the provision of green gym equipment
The project also involved the construction of 2 bridges over the River Camac. One bridge was a piled abutment bridge with precast bridge beams. The second bridge was formed using a Precast Concrete Culvert structure and required a River Diversion for the realignment of the river. Inland Fisheries were also engaged with for the planning of the bridge works and also the relocation of fish from the diverted river to the new aligned river. The Building was fully fitted out with High Bay Racking providing space for 32000 pallets and a full Roof Mounted Sprinkler installation and associated water tanks and pumphouse. A Foul Pumping Station was also installed as part of the works.
Full Electrical installation to office and welfare areas including the construction of a new ESB substation serving the building. Full Security and CCTV to the entire building both internally and externally.
Full Mechanical installation to office and welfare areas including Thermal Dynamic Air to heat pumps and full VRF heating and ventilation system and Fire Hose Reel installation to the warehouse.
Working adjacent to the Casement Aerodrome, archaeological discoveries during earthworks, managing on site Japanese Knotweed, working adjacent to the River Camac (engagement with Inland Fisheries), inclement weather conditions during construction.
The completed project achieved BREEAM Very Good certification. The project also received a Gold Award by the Considerate Constructors Scheme.
