REDEVELOPING CORKS GAA CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE, PÁIRC UÍ CHAOIMH
The redevelopment of Páirc Uí Chaoimh was a high profile stadium contract in the Cork region awarded to Roadstone in September 2015.
As a main supplier of concrete materials and stone products, the project was certain to pull from Roadstone’s expert ability and experience of supplying major contracts.
Completed over a two year period, Páirc Uí Chaoimh is now the fourth largest Gaelic games stadium in Ireland with a capacity of 45,000.
Materials supplied to the project consisted of:
During the construction John Sisk & Son was also awarded a contract to build an all-weather pitch and centre of excellence on an adjoining 7 acres of ground. This additional element to the project required a significant order of stonefill from Roadstone
Also during the project Roadstone’s Blacktop Contracts Division secured a contract to supply and lay the blacktop element of the job.
By following procedures as closely as possible the relationship with the client grew over the project. Over a period of 21months from October 2015 to June 2017 Roadstone supplied the following materials to site:
- 32,000 cubic metres of concrete consisting of 17 different mix designs.
- 98,000 tonne of stone material
- 15,000 blocks (including Roadstone’s new Thermal Liteblock)
In summary the project went well for both John Sisk & Sons and Roadstone
Learning experiences from this project were as follows
- Good channels of communication are always required
- Advanced planning and scheduling are critical
- Timely reaction to issues arising is essential to ensuring confidence
- Quality products and service makes the job easier
- Observing Health & Safety regulations allows us all to come home safe
