Kinsale Main Drainage Scheme Advance Works - Storm Holding Tank

Construction of a new storm holding and pumping station at Long Quay in the intertidal zone on the foreshore. Contractor designed temporary works included a sheet piled cofferdam. Piling works were carried out using our company owned 60t crawler crane and impact hammer. Drainage 700-1650mm diameter was installed through the Main street requiring significant traffic management and rerouting of live services. A significant element of these works were the cladding of the structure in masonry using traditional techniques.
