Royal College of Surgeons, Dublin

JTS performed demolitions, temporary steelwork propping and bulk excavations to the RCSI extension in central Dublin.

Our works involved demolition of the existing carpark structures, then excavation of a deep dig basement adjacent to a former basement. Temporary steelwork propping was also inserted by JTS as the excavations progressed.

JTS excavated downwards with 2nr Liebherr excavators and deployed a long reach machine to retrieve the spoil and bring to ground level for disposal off-site. Once all steelwork was in place and the excavations were complete to the required formation level, JTS then brought in a 150t crane and craned our Excavators out of the basement back to ground level.

The bulk dig also contained different grades of inert and contaminated soil, which JTS managed and transported to the relevant licenced facilities. JTS are fully licenced to handle and transport all types of contaminated soils, and we worked closely with the geotechnical consultant on this project to ensure all the contaminated soils were handled correctly.
