Key Constraints:

Given the location of the works, there were a number of constraints which were taken into the consideration in the design & planning phase:

  • Works in close proximity to the significant watercourse

  • Site immediately adjacent to Premiership Football Club: management of activities around the football fixture list

  • Brownfield site

  • Multi-storey construction: enhanced Fire Management Strategy etc.

  • Limited space & multi-storey: required Tower Crane for building process

  • Close proximity to existing Phase 1 residential apartment blocks with pedestrian footpath links: security, noise, dust, vibration issues

  • Ground Conditions (made ground & peat), Stability Issues & shallow Groundwater

  • Elevated levels of ground gases

  • Potential for Unexploded Ordnance
