Gandon Park on the Dosborough Road in Lucan
DBFL are delighted to have provided civil and structural consulting services for Gandon Park on the Dosborough Road in Lucan. The development by Cairn Homes PLC is part of the wider Shackleton development and consists of a mix of 151 houses and 86 duplex units. The duplex units are split between 2 bed apartments and 3 bed duplexes across 4No. 4 storey blocks.
The superstructure for the duplexes consist primarily of masonry construction with precast slabs. Kingspan Century provided timber frames for the top 2 storeys of the 3 storey elements on the duplexes. The incorporation of the timber frame into the structure allowed for a faster programme thus allowing the duplex blocks to be completed in tandem with the houses. DBFL coordinated the design of the traditional masonry structure to provide the required support for the timber frames.
2 storey precast concrete frames by Kwik Structures provide support for the steel framed balconies along the main elevations. Splitting these elements up allowed for the finished steel balconies to be lifted into place after the precast concrete frames had been installed and cladded.
