Working on behalf of main contractor John Paul Construction, SRS are progressing with the fabrication and installation of the structural steel at Elm Park, Dublin.

The substantial refurbishment and reconstruction of the existing building requires SRS to fabricate and install approximately 800 tonnes of structural steelwork in the reconfiguration which will see several concrete cores and floor plates demolished and replaced by steel braced frames and steel infills. Installation of the steelwork is much more complex than a typical project and columns need to be dropped through 7 floors down to basement level.

There is significant temporary works involved in the project and SRS have installed a series of tension rods which are torqued, in order to induce load in the frames prior to being dry packed and the existing slabs cut.
