Temporary Works for the Structure on the M8 Scheme in Glasgow

Jul 26, 2016

Byrnelooby completed the Temporary Works for the structure on the M8 scheme in Glasgow as a joint office venture. The project was managed from the Belfast office:

  • Belfast created the design of the crane platform and the slope stability assessment of the embankment under the crane load.
  • Dublin carried out the assessment of the beam stability when the beams landed. 
  • Previously, Galway had also assessed the stability of the abutment reinforcement cages as they were being craned into position, have designed a precast beam lifting system to place the precast sections of the structure, have designed a bespoke temporary access system and are currently designing a cantilevered platform to facilitate the deck pour.
