L&M Keating are “delighted” that two of their recent Design Build Marine Civil Engineering Projects have been awarded national titles.
At the Association of Consulting Engineers of Ireland Annual Awards they had two projects in the running: Haulbowline Bridge Post-tensioned Bridge Rehabilitation in conjunction with RPS, Cork and Cape Clear Island Storm Island Storm Gate Project.
The Best Medium Sized Structure award went to O’Connor Sutton Cronin, Galway for their work as their Structural and Civil Engineering Consultant to the Cape Clear Island Harbour Storm Gate Project.
The team also attended the Irish Concrete Society Annual Awards where they had two entries, N4 Hughes Bridge with Arup Consulting Engineers and Doolin Pier with Malachy Walsh & Partners. The Doolin Pier Project took the national title for Best Infrastructural Project 2016.
The awards recognise the innovative approach of the company.
In Cape Clear L&M Keating floated a reinforced concrete lock chamber over 100km from Verolme Drydock, Cobh to Cape Clear Island Harbour. The chamber houses new CE marked hydraulic gates which, when closed, provide shelter to the harbour during storms.
“In particular this award recognises the intricate structural design of the reinforced lock chamber,” says L&M Keating. “We are extremely proud that our specialist consultants, O’Connor Sutton Cronin and our team have gained this prestigious title for this totally innovative solution.”
