Waterman Moylan provided full planning, design, health and safety and project management services in connection with a two-storey extension to the existing main airside emergency response centre at Dublin Airport.
The centre operates 24 hours a day, year-round, and houses all emergency response vehicles and equipment for runway, taxiway and aircraft parking apron incidents. It also houses the incident coordination and control centre as well as all training, office and welfare facilities for the on-duty staff. Planning for the extension included development of detailed working procedures for everything from access to the site to construction activities on site and phasing of the works, to ensure that there would be no risk of any impairment of the emergency services teams at any stage.
The extension itself provided space for new training, welfare, canteen and administration facilities for the emergency services teams and was successfully integrated into the existing centre.
