N18 Ennis By-Pass, N85 Western Relief Road

The project is constructed for the N18 National Primary Route which is from Dromoland where the Newmarket on Fergus Bypass terminates to Cragard on the existing N18, 4 km south of Crusheen. The N85 Western Relief Road is constructed from Claureen on the existing N85 Ennistimon Road. It is extended southwards, crossing the N68 at Cahircalla, and the existing N18 north of Killadysert Cross to connect with the new N18 Eastern Bypass route at Killow.

This project is executed by GAMA Construction Ireland Ltd.

100+147 Houses and Community Facility

Balgaddy Scheme consists of 100+147 residential units arranged in urban blocks as apartments, duplexes and terraced houses. The development is designed to cater for all types of residents including disabled, single persons and large families.

The development is not only cater for social housing but also provides housing for voluntary housing associations, co-operative housing groups and private purchasers. The scheme is a continuation of the urban block format of Balgaddy A-B with tree-lined avenues culminating in a new park bounded on the other side by Balgaddy D (by South Dublin County Council Architects). The scheme is part of an overall master plan being administered by a number of architectural practices and South Dublin County Council that will provide over 600 residential units in the South Lucan area. The basic design concept of Balgaddy B and C is that of densification, consolidation and urbanization of under utilized lands. Balgaddy E is a new mid density neighborhood of 100 dwellings and 2 shops for South Dublin County Council.

N2 Clontibret to Castleblayney Road Scheme

The total length of the road is 15.8 km, which is constructed 2+1 lanes in high quality. Moreover, there are 12 bridges constructions in the scope of the project, 6 of which are underpass bridges and 6 Culverts. Monaghan County Council propose to realign the N2 National Primary Route over a length of 15.9 km between the town lands of Moy Otra, near Clontibret village, and Drumcrew on the Carrickmacross Road, just south of Castleblayney.

The project includes for the provision of a 2+1 lane road, a three-lane road with two lanes in one direction of travel and one lane in the other. This road type provides safe two-lane overtaking zones, which alternate with one-lane sections, at intervals of approximately 2 km. The traffic streams are separated by a safety barrier which prevents overtaking manoeuvres on the single-lane sections. Right turning will only be permitted at designated junctions to reduce the number of conflict areas and to enhance safety.

400 MW Tynagh Combined Cycle Power Plant

Tynagh Energy Limited has built Galway’s first power generation facility. The circa €300 million power plant is a modern state-of-the art facility using the latest in advanced engineering technology. It uses the cleanest available fuel, natural gas, which significantly reduces emissions of carbon dioxide. For the first time, Galway city and the region has a reliable and efficient source of power.

Approximately 30 years life-span power plant was built under a turnkey contract with a consortium of General Electric Company / General Electric International Inc. and GAMA Power Systems Inc. The gas turbine used is a GE 9FA design. F-class gas turbines were developed in the late 1980s and are considered commercially proven with a track record of high availability and reliability. The steam turbine is a GE A15 ‘HEAT’ (high efficiency advanced technology) model, with a GE 9A5 electrical generator. The designs of both the A15 steam turbine and the 9A5 electrical generator were developments from previous GE models that are fully proven technology. These are logical evolutions from previous models and incorporate GE’s comprehensive design process and field-testing facilities which are without doubt world-class.

GAMA Construction Ireland Ltd. Headquarters Construction

4 storey + underground car park which compromises 5,272 m2 closed area with two entrances, 29 Car park spaces in the basement, 58 car park facilities externally and 300 m2 multi-purpose storage area.

In keeping with the quality established by the existing building within Northwood Avenue is being designed and built to the highest possible specifications the external facade consist of industry-renowned ‘Techrete’ architectural panels finished in Portland Stone and Granite. This is complemented by extensive planar glazing resulting in an exceptionally high quality external finish, as befitting the pivotal location of the building. Internally, the double-height glazed atrium provided an attractive reception area with limestone/granite flooring, while the toilet areas are fitted complete with quality ceramic tiling of floors and walls, high quality sanitary ware and electric showers and hand driers. With regard to the office areas, the specifications and finishes are in keeping with a landmark building of this caliber.

87 Dwellings, Associated External Works and Site Development

The works involve construction of 87 dwellings, new public highway with footpaths, parking areas, private and public landscaping.

The northern half of the site is laid out with seven three storey U-shaped buildings, each comprising nine apartments. These are arranged around private, south-facing courtyards facing the new internal road. The three-storey scale is appropriate to Santry Avenue and also relates to the Phase 3 and to the Phase 1 apartments by Gilroy McMahon Architects. Parking is provided for the apartments in landscaped areas to the side of each building. Terraces of two storey houses with rear gardens are lined the southern half of the site and backed onto the existing Coultry houses. Each terrace is also arranged in a U-shape corresponding to the apartment building opposite. This plan enhances the scale of the long estate road positioned over the services. All apartments have ‘own door’ access and generous south or west facing terraces the large ground floor apartments have private gardens.
