Ballyogan Landfill Culvert Rehab Wins UKSTT Acclaim
Insituform Technologies Ltd. (ITL), alongside specialist contractor Insituform Environmental Techniques (IET) in Ireland, is proud to announce that its culvert rehabilitation project, which formed part of the Ballyogan Landfill Stage 2 Capping Contract, won the prestigious Renovation – Large Project Award at the recent United Kingdom Society for Trenchless Technology (UKSTT) Annual Awards Dinner.
Awarded for excellence on pipeline, culvert or underground structure rehabilitation projects valued in excess of £250,000, the award highlights the professionalism with which the work was carried out, the planning and application of the methodology and the minimal impact the project had on the environment and surrounding area.
The culvert rehabilitation project was designated as the Ballyogan Landfill Site Carrickmines Dublin 18 works. The client for the works was Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council with RPS Consulting Engineers (RPS) acting as its engineering consultant. The main contractor for the project was Priority Construction, and the lining works were subcontracted to Insituform Environmental Techniques.
The project entailed the rehabilitation of twin 1,350-mm diameter culverts, which extend through the body of the site to convey the Ballyogan Stream through the landfill. Investigations had shown that the culverts were at a risk of structural failure due to their location and age. ITL’s CIPP lining system was chosen to complete the works.
For ITL, John Beech, Business Development Manager, commented: “To have a project such as this recognized and rewarded by our industry peers as outstanding makes us all at both ITL and IET immensely proud. These installations were not exactly ‘run-of-the-mill’ jobs. Access was tricky, particularly given the proximity of a major power substation adjacent to the site. The lining operations themselves went very well, even with the logistical challenges of getting materials and supplies to the relatively remote locations of the landfill site. It was a job well done.”
