Project Wave is a new commercial and residential scheme on the north side of the River Liffey and is one of the largest commercial developments in Dublin. When complete it will provide in excess of 50,000sq.m of office space as well as more than 250 apartments. Project Wave is being built on the site of a partially complete legacy project, having been initially commenced in 2008. ByrneLooby was presented with a number of challenges due to the existence of foundations from the previous scheme having been constructed on the site.
With the previous foundation solution having been developed in 2008, changes in codes of practice along with new development proposals meant that ByrneLooby needed to approach the project differently in order to get maximum value from the legacy foundations. A program of in-situ testing was developed in order to optimise the capacity of the piles for the new development and align the design with the Euro Codes. We successfully developed efficient design solutions and realised significant cost and program savings for our client.
