Apron rehabilitation at Dublin Airport
IDOM was appointed to provide full consultancy services for the development of the Apron Rehabilitation project at Dublin Airport commencing in 2015.
The project initially comprised a feasibility study to assess the condition of 110,000 sqm of existing pavement, which had been subject to ad hoc repairs and was experiencing increased traffic by wide body aircraft with consequential pavement deterioration. The scope of this project included the design of pavements both rigid and flexible, the aerodrome ground lightning (AGL) system, drainage, signage and horizontal markings. The feasibility study recommended the rehabilitation/reconstruction of 45,000 sqm of critical pavement that was able to be constructed within the available programme and budget.
The construction phasing was a particularly critical and complex element of the project; thus, stakeholder engagement was undertaken to achieve a successful delivery of the works for all the parties involved.
The works were delivered in 4 separate packages, each of them constructed to coincide with the winter schedules from 2015 to 2019. IDOM developed the feasibility studies, the outline and detailed designs, and the tender documentation, providing also support to daa with the evaluation of the contractors´ proposals. After that, IDOM produced all the construction documentation and carried out the Contract Administration of the works for Package 1 (2015-2016) and Package 2 (2016-2017), under the Engineers Ireland (IEI) Contract, and Package 4 (2018-2019), under New Engineering Contract (NEC3) Contract.
