We ere contracted to provide pyrite remediation works to the perimeter foundations on two elevations of Dublin Bus’s administration building. This involved the removal of the entire curtain wall façade of the 3 storey Administration Building keeping the depot operational in the process. All pyrite material in the wall foundation was removed and replaced with certified clean stone fill (SR21 Annex E).
Initially a temporary timber wall was constructed inside the existing exterior curtain wall for weathering purposes. The exterior curtain wall was then removed to facilitate replacement of the foundation. All wall panels and structural members were cleaned and repaired before being refitted once the foundation works had taken place. Significant repairs to partitions, ceiling and floors were then carried out to restore the building to full use.
