Kinsale Road Landfill – Final Capping
Cork City Council
RPS has completed the final landfill capping at the former Kinsale Road Landfill site, facilitating its transformation into an attractive and safe public amenity.
Appointed by Cork City Council in 2012, our services included:
Detailed design of landfill capping works, leachate and landfill gas infrastructure
Surface water system design
Design of internal access roads, pavilion building, parking, playing field and landscaped areas
Contract and construction administration
The project involved innovative reuse of construction and demolition waste, as park benches were formed from gabion cages filled with crushed concrete, recycled from demolished grain silos in the Cork City docklands. Key project elements include BMX tracks, multi-use events space, sports pitch and pavilion building.
