Harbour Square – Temporary Works
RPS is the structural engineer for the design of the highly acclaimed landmark Harbour Square Development, a mixed-use development of commercial offices, retail units and residential apartments on a confined urban site overlooking Dublin Bay.
The €60m development has 5 interlinked blocks with a shared 2-storey underground basement car parking and concrete podium. The development on a 2.2 acre site comprises 35,000m2 of 6-storey commercial offices, retail and 118 residential apartments and landscaped plaza area.
The 19th century listed protected Harbour Lodge and Town Hall share the site, and the DART railway runs in close proximity. RPS structural engineers were responsible for the design and provided full time site supervision. Our temporary works services included design of a combination of steel sheet piles and contiguous concrete piles to facilitate the deep basement construction, whilst supporting these existing buildings. Our team also carried out condition surveys and monitoring during excavations.
