Client: IT Carlow
Architect: Brian Dunlop Architects
Description: Single storey extension (c. 275sq.m) to the existing Avionics Building at IT Carlow. Scope included for Structural Steel framed building (clear span exposed tubular trusses with vertical / inclined support columns) complete with full height Architectural Curtain Wall / Structural Glazing to both the south and west elevations to demonstrate all works undertaken within the building. Scope also included for all associated Services Installations and Site Development works including bulk excavation, surfacing, drainage installations & extensive diversions / protection to the existing underground service mains and drainage. The project also called for a 12 metre sliding door allowing for the aircraft to be moved inside and outside the building during training.
No as-built services drawings were available requiring hand digging to survey prior to new installations.
The construction took place within a live third level campus requiring traffic management plans and co-ordination of all logistics on and off site.
