Project Complications & Achievements

Shamrock Civil turfed the landscape area rather than ‘seed’ as per the design documents, this provided better value for money to Defence but also provided a reduced risk of erosion / PFAS soil run-off from the earthworks batters. Shamrock complete the contracted works ahead of the scheduled programme completion date as the original duration allowed for stand-down and contingencies for other subcontractors to perform their works. Shamrock Civil successfully delivered the project on time with zero LTI’s and NCR’s.
