About Project

The construction of a cantilevered shared public space and access ramps at Stephen Street car park, Sligo.

Our Approach & Solution​

Construction of cantilevered performance platform, cantilevering approximately 3.6m beyond existing stone wall out over the Garvogue River; Construction of access ramps, low level walls and railings; Within the handrail an LED pod lighting system installed.   

Piles were drilled into the underlying rock and these support and restrain the structural steel platform. Reinforced concrete ground beams, with the holding down bolts for the main structural steel frame, were cast on top of the piles. The structural steel frame was bolted to the ground beam and supports the hardwood decking. The front edge of the structural steel platform cantilevers approximately 3.6m over the River Garvogue.
