14 Harcourt St. Dublin 2
No. 14 Harcourt St. in Dublin City was suffering structural distress due to the brick corner of the building becoming overloaded. A large bow window in the gable had become unstable and required substantial remedial structural work.
- Temporary propping of the building using steel frames
- Removal of the large bow window and the re-construction of the corner of building.
- Re-enforced concrete and steel was then inserted into the building interior and the structure was tied together using tensioned steel wires.
- Bourke Builders completed this work with the added complexity of having to operate cranes in very close proximity to the live LUAS and on a very busy street.
