Project Description

Malachy Walsh and Partners scope of services included the project management, performing the role of PSDP, design, procurement, supervision, commissioning and final account of this deepwater quay stabilisation contract in Cobh, County Cork on behalf of the Port of Cork Company. The works included the structural and geotechnical analysis of the existing gravity quay structure, design of stabilisation measures including scour protection, grouting, anchoring and joint sealing of the masonry quay wall. The contract documentation was completed, the contractor procured and the works completed and certified during the period between October 2010 and March 2011 when the large cruise ships do not berth in Cobh. It was imperative that the quay was available for the first cruise liner arrival on the 11th April 2011. This date was achieved.
