Spencer Dock Quay Wall and Cill Inspection, Co. Dublin

Client:            John Cradock Civil Engineering Ltd

Project Overview

Dive and Marine Contractors were successfully contracted to carry out an underwater survey of the quay wall and cill at Spencer Dock, IFSC, Co Dublin. A detailed Level 1 inspection was carried out to ascertain any obvious damage and deterioration with a follow comprehensive report by our Underwater Engineer. Strategic planning was required due to the location of the site in the heart of Dublin’s main business hub. Access for the dive team was provided by the use of a crane and man-rider basket following a detailed risk assessment. To prevent access from the public, barrier fencing was erected.

Dive & Marine Contractors compiled the relevant diving documentation including dive plans, detailed method statement and risk assessment and liaised with the Dublin Port Operations to obtain suitable permissions and permits as per the HSA Diving at Work regulations 1981.
