Convent Garden. Kinsale, County Cork
Construction of a Residential Development at Convent of Mercy, Kinsale, County Cork.
Cumnor Construction Ltd. carried out the role of Works Contractor and PSCS for this project.
The works involved the construction of twenty-one luxury houses in a mixture of two and three bedroom properties. The houses achieved A Energy rating.
External works included new foul and storm water systems, watermains and all services, construction of roads and paths and the installation of lighting. There are substantial reinforced concrete retaining walls included in the siteworks also.
The works were carried out within Kinsale Town, a busy tourist destination. The roads within the town are narrow and often one-way traffic is allowed. Traffic management plans were therefore designed in order to co-ordinate deliveries to the site. This required having larger deliveries to the site during off peak times as roads were often required to close temporarily in order to facilitate the deliveries.
Noise, dust and vibration control measures were in place in order not to impact the neighbouring environment.
