We would like to begin this newsletter by expressing our thanks to you for your patience over the last number of weeks. Our contractor Mannings have been in contact with many local residents regarding a variety of issues that have arisen as a result of the ongoing works and we hope that they have delivered a satisfactory response on each occasion.
Where we are
We are currently completing the foundations of the Lidl store and medical centre and will shortly be commencing the construction of the 1st floor slabs for each building. We have also commenced the install of the site attenuation tank alongside the drainage and ducting runs servicing the development.
We will be making progress on the Lidl store’s superstructure in the coming weeks. Concrete columns, beams and blockwork will all be visible soon. The site services will also be progressed, electrical / telecom ducting, surface and foul water drainage will continue to be installed.
We have instigated several measures to address local concerns including the installation of an exclusion zone around protected poplar trees to the rear of our site as per Lidl’s arborists recommendations.
- We have maintained a team of traffic management personnel at our entrance to help manage construction vehicles at our site entrance and mitigate any impact on local traffic.
- We are washing the Castleknock road daily with our road sweeper to reduce the level of dirt and mud arising from our site strip operations.
- We have arranged remote carparking facilities for our staff along with a shuttle bus to reduce any offsite parking in the neighbourhoods adjacent to the site.
- We are also wetting the site down on sunny days to mitigate the amount of dust generated during the works.
We hope that the foregoing measures have mitigated any inconvenience caused to your community during the construction process thus far.
As always, we remain open to speaking with you at any time and welcome your comments and suggestions on any problems you feel we need to address.
