New Bancroft, Tallaght

A reputation for integrity and reliability is key to the success of Hegarty Demolition, and it was in recognition of this fact that Park Development Group chose our company for an extremely challenging project spanning a time frame of five years.

As part of the Group’s €300m mixed development at New Bancroft, Tallaght, Hegarty Demolition was selected to carry out site enabling works and basement excavation – to include earthwork supports, basement construction, de-watering, waterproofing, and a considerable amount of shell and core construction in a phased programme.

Phase I of the project involved a basement construction including all associated under-floor drainage, outfall drains and road crossings and the like. A full Traffic Management Plan and liaison with the Local Authority was provided, coordinated and managed by ourselves. The structure was completed on time and within budget which precipitated negotiations to proceed onto the next phase of the project.

Phase II – a two-storey basement structure, 7,000m2 in area, was finalised and commenced immediately after Phase I. Many challenging issues were encountered and resolved on this sloping site, which was again surrounded by existing structures and a busy road network. Innovative problem solving and exhaustive pre-planning procedures meant that particular engineering concerns regarding de-watering were anticipated and successfully overcome.

Hegarty Demolition was subsequently appointed to carry out shell and core construction for superstructure works, hard landscaping, installation of services and other infrastructure works. The entire €15m contract was completed on time and within budget.
