Páirc Uí Chaoimh

REDEVELOPING CORKS GAA CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE, PÁIRC UÍ CHAOIMH

The Challenge

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.

 

Solution

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.

 

Result

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)

 

Takeaways

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
