Rock Anchors Cobh Town Council Slope Stabilisation Works Phase 2
TAL was engaged as a specialist sub-contractor by the Main Contractor BAM Contractors to undertake Rock Drilling, Shotcreting, Soil Nailing and Rock Bolts on behalf of Cobh Town Council. TAL began work on this project in October 2012 and continuing into June 2013.
Works were carried out at 13 separate sites around the town, all of which were in very restrictive conditions over public paths and streets, behind private houses and Council properties; all remained fully ‘live’ and ‘operational’ throughout the works.
Very strict procedures were put in place to ensure both public and employee safety at all times and constant communications and meetings with Local Authority representatives were necessary.
All underground and over-ground services in the vicinity of the works were carefully traced, relocated / protected and reinstated on completion.
Elaborate traffic management plans were prepared, submitted for discussion, amended as necessary and strictly implemented.
Methods statements for all works were carefully prepared, submitted and approved prior to commencing any work.
