|Project Name:||Tullamore Distillery, Offaly|
Structural Engineering, Civil Engineering
Multi-disciplinary engineering services were provided for the development of this green field site in County Offaly, Ireland, providing a multi-unit distillery and processing plant. Patrick Parsons was responsible for the design of all the steel frame buildings, pipe racks, reinforced piled slabs to support tanks and road/drainage solutions for the entire site.
Challenges: Extremely challenging ground conditions as the site consisted of an overlaying strata of peat. This resulted in a complex construction and foundation solution. The complex arrangement of buildings, necessary for the whiskey making process, was spread over a large site which required extensive co-ordination.
