OCSC were appointed by the Institute of Technology Tallaght (ITT) as consultants to complete the design of the enabling civil engineering contract for a new college campus extension. The scheme is located within the college grounds between the Belgard Road and Greenhills Road. The project involved the construction of a new access road and car park linking the Belgard Road on to the Greenhills Road at which location bus lanes, pedestrian and cycle facilities had to be modified.
The works involved the construction of 2.0 kilometres of new roads, two new junctions, internal car parks and the extension of the high quality ‘ZIP’ shared cycle and footpath facility through the campus together with associated works. The scheme was taken from the planning process through detailed design and on to site. Scheme design required significant liaison with engineering staff from the Transportation Section of South Dublin County Council. The ‘ZIP’ is a high grade shared cycle and footpath facility and the scheme will extend the current facility by 1 kilometre.
OCSC provided design, contract documentation, contract administration and site supervision services for the project.
