Address: Rosehill, Kells Road, Kilkenny
Client: John Somers Construction Ltd
Retaining system: Gabions
We achieved cost savings in the region of circa 40% on the design, supply and install cost over the design that was originally specified. We achieved this by refining the design which reduced the amount of material required and also the programme for installation. The total savings were much greater than 40% as we also reduced the amount of excavation required and the resultant cost of removing this material off-site and replacing it with imported material.
This was a public project and as such was subject to the new bcars certification system for the design and the installation. We were able to provide this certification without issue due to us carrying out both the design and the installation. (it can be problematic for some design and suppliers to sign off on a project under the bcars due to them not providing on-site supervision of the installation which is a plus for us). deleteThere were also some design adjustments required due to unforeseen circumstances on site which we were able to address without delay due to the same team carrying out the design and installation.
“We recently dealt with EvoGeo on a new build site in Kilkenny and, from tender stage through to completion, found them to be very professional, competitive, proficient, and flexible. They helped to ensure the gabion wall design was engineered to be the most economic and appropriate solution for the site. We would happily recommend EvoGeo and look forward to working with them on any future projects.”
