JOB: Ebrington Square Public Realm in Derry~Londonderry
MAIN CONTRACTOR: SIAC NI Ltd.
FUNDING ORGANISATION: ILEX Urban Regeneration Company
In 2006, ILEX was tasked with turning the Ebrington Barracks, a 26 acre site in Derry~Londonderry, into an asset that would benefit the city as a whole. The designs included a new public square and multi-purpose shared spaces for culture, arts, leisure and tourism, incorporating 19 buildings of historic or architectural note.
Larsen provided SIAC with silo-mixed bedding mortar and jointing mortars to aid installation of the paving in line with the programme.
Larsen and SIAC monitored material consumption closely and co-ordinated stock deliveries, plant maintenance and quality control checks.
The links, walkways and open spaces include sunken gardens, stone cobble and flag paving, quality street furniture, glazed links and landscape works.
The urban regeneration schemes at the Peace Bridge and Ebrington Square have achieved two Irish Planning Institute National Awards.
