Nicholas O’Dwyer project named as engineering endeavour of the year

December 16, 2021

RSK business Nicholas O’Dwyer Ltd is thrilled that one of its projects has been awarded the prestigious title of Engineering Endeavour 2021 by Engineers Ireland, following an online public vote.

Cork Lower Harbour Main Drainage Project recently won the Engineering Infrastructure category of the Engineers Ireland Engineering Excellence Digital Series, and now brings home this latest accolade, which was chosen by the public and members of Engineers Ireland as the top engineering project of 2021.

The project has been delivered safely through a hugely collaborative effort between Irish Water, with Nicholas O’Dwyer acting as engineering representative and contract supervisor throughout, and all delivery partners, including contractors Farrans Sorensen Joint Venture, O’Connor Utilities, Ward & Burke, EPS and Sisk.

This major Irish Water project connected 20,000 homes and businesses to the drainage scheme and ended the practice of discharging the equivalent of 40,000 wheelie bins of raw sewage into Cork Harbour every day.

The project has greatly improved the amenity value of the Cork Lower Harbour for the surrounding communities of Ringaskiddy, Carrigaline, Crosshaven, Passage West, Monkstown and Cobh town.

🤔 Should businesses offer free period products to staff?

We think they should!

💚 We decided to trial this at our offices, offering pads, panty liners and tampons for free. What’s more, all products on offer (and their packaging) are made from sustainable materials.

What do you think of this initiative?
