A.J. Browne, Project Manager at Atkins recently delivered an insightful and interesting presentation in Engineers Ireland on the recently completed Kevin Street Garda Headquarters project. The building has a floor space of over 12000m2 including a double basement and was constructed on a constrained city centre site.
The presentation included an overview of the engineering aspects of the design which included the challenges encountered and lesson learned.
Challenges and lessons learned covered dewatering the site, waterproofing the basement and assessing contractor value engineering proposals.
