LOCATION: Casement Aerodrome, Baldonnell, County Dublin
Casement Aerodrome is a military airbase in southwest Dublin. It is the headquarters and sole airfield of the Irish Defence Forces Air Corp. Global Rail Services Ltd (GRSL) were commissioned to install new outdoor radiation measurement equipment within the confines of the airfield on behalf of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Global Rail Services Ltd were appointed Project Supervisor Construction Stage (PSCS) for the works. Works involved the construction of two concrete plinths complete with a galvanised ESB approved mini pillar on each. Trenching and ducting works, including 6 access junctions, were carried out through a field adjacent to the airfield runway and on a concrete footpath adjacent to the transmitter hut building, to allow for cable entry to the building. On completion, the grass area was re-graded and re-seeded. The concrete footpath was reinstated to match existing.
