We’ve recently completed a Development Assessment for proposed works at Whitehall Colmcille GAA’s site directly above the Dublin Port Tunnel.

Sites located over the Dublin Port Tunnel corridor or the DART Underground protected corridor require the submission of a Development Assessment to ensure that they do not adversely affect the structural integrity of the Dublin Port Tunnel or the future DART Underground tunnels. This Development Assessment must be carried out in accordance with the requirements of Policy MT22 and Appendix 6 of the Dublin City Development Plan 2016-2022 and the specific requirements of Transport Infrastructure Ireland or Irish Rail by a suitably qualified engineer.

We were ideally placed to carry out this Development Assessment in a straightforward and efficient manner. Our procedure involved:

  • A site visit to become familiar with the site and identify any surface features which may affect the assessment.
  • Review of all documents – scheme plans, structure loadings, ground investigation information, etc.
  • Detailed geotechnical analysis to predict likely loadings imposed on the tunnel lining by the proposed development.
  • Preparation of drawings and a detailed report for submission to TII outlining the findings.
