Triple shortlist for Irish Construction Excellence Awards
Waterman are delighted that Capital Dock Blocks A & B, Clifden Community School and Clancy Quay Officers Mess have been shortlisted for the Irish Construction Excellence (ICE) Awards, which is due to take place on Friday 29 March.
The Awards recognises excellence in performance for the contracting sector in Ireland, rewarding companies who strive to move the industry forward across 17 premier categories.
Capital Dock Blocks A & B – ‘Commercial over €10m’
Capital Dock is a prime 4.8 acre-waterfront scheme in Dublin’s central business district, comprising 60,000 m2 mixed-use contemporary office, residential and retail development. The prestigious scheme delivers 190 high-quality residential units set across three buildings, one of which is 23-storeys and the tallest in Dublin. The 35,000 m2 of offices across three buildings provides a variety of work place settings with amenity space and roof terraces.
We were appointed by Kennedy Wilson to provide civil and structural engineering services and construction-related health and safety advisory services on the project.
Clifden Community School – ‘Education and Healthcare’
Located in the heart of the beautiful Connemara region, the ambitious €8 million redevelopment of Clifden Community School, originally built in 1979, has a combination of two and three-storeys offering more than 3,900 m² of teaching and ancillary space for its 500 students. Completed in October 2017 as part of a €100 million investment initiative to upgrade older school premises to meet modern day standards, it’s been designed to include a new entrance, internal access roads, parking spaces, landscaping, drainage works, sports facilities and an on-site waste water treatment plant.
Our team in Dublin provided civil and structural engineering services for this greatly improved educational facility.
Clancy Quay Officers Mess – ‘Public or Heritage Building’
The Officers Mess in Clancy barracks was a dilapidated Victorian red brick building which was used by the military for 200 years up till the 1990’s. As part of the distinctive and unique Clancy Quay residential development, it has been lovingly restored to its original glory, and converted to provide 12 high-quality apartments. It will form the central focus of a new 240 apartment scheme that is being constructed adjacent to the restored building and its gardens, with the new six and seven-storey blocks facing onto the grounds of the Officer’s Mess.
Our team in Dublin were appointed to provide civil and structural engineering and health & safety co-ordination services for this prestigious restoration and conversion project.
In addition to our shortlisted projects, Kieran O’Neill, Senior Health & Safety Consultant in our Dublin team, has joined the panel of industry experts to judge the ICE Awards ‘Health, Safety & Wellbeing’ category for a second year.
Kieran will use his 30 plus years of experience in the industry to recognise the company that demonstrates well-being in the workplace and actively portrays the construction industry as an attractive field to work in.
The prestigious gala dinner will be hosted in the Round Room at Mansion House in Dublin.
