PROJECT DESCRIPTION


The project consisted in the design and construction of a foundations package for 15 2-bedroom and 3-bedroom houses, all semi-detached, in Fenagh, about 10 minutes-drive from Carlow.


GROUND CONDITIONS


The development was situated near the new Waterford-Carlow by-pass, in the rapidly expanding village of Fenagh and was ideally suited to this type of foundations package.

 

DESIGN SOLUTION


  • The foundations package included the provision of precast concrete piling (to a depth of up to 6m), precast concrete pile caps, and precast concrete ground beams.
  • The overall construction programme was completed in 3 weeks.
  • Terradrive introduced a new cast-in-situ caps system for this project, which proved to be a great success and a cost effective alternative to a precast caps solution.
