Project Scope:

Tritech Group was appointed Main Contractor on the Hamilton Building Project as part of Trinity College Dublin’s ongoing strategy to decarbonise their buildings while improving Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and end user comfort. Flaktwoods latest technology in Air Handling Equipment was at the centre of the project scope. Encouraged by this sustainable approach to facility management by the client, Tritech Group responded with a commitment to managing the construction works using a conscientious and sustainable strategy within the constraints of a small site compound in a public space.

Client vision/objectives:

The client wanted waste managed in a sustainable way by aligning with environmental stewardship and resource conservation principles.

Unique challenges of the project:

Over the course of the project, Health and Safety was paramount. Our Senior Health and Safety advisor Ruth Hayes managed these aspects of the project in partnership with all onsite staff and subcontractors achieving a site safety score of 97% at the completion of the project. Tritech team delivered this project in a safe, sustainable, and successful way, exceeding the expectations of the design team and the client.

Tritech Methods/Innovations:

Tritech implemented practices and strategies that reduce waste generation, promote the reuse and recycling of materials, and ensure the responsible disposal of non-recyclable waste. Our goal was to minimise the environmental impact of waste, conserve natural resources, and support the client's sustainability goals.
