Opening of N70 Brackahargh Road Project

Minister of State at the Department of Transport, Hildegarde Naughton officially opened the N70 Brackahargh Road Project on Thursday 27th October. Sorensen Contracts Manager, Brian Snow was in attendance on a wild and blustery day on the Ring of Kerry!

The project was a safety initiative by Kerry County Council and Transport Infrastructure Ireland that consisted of the upgrade and widening of a 1.2km section of the N70 National Secondary Road and construction of a new cycle way.

We’d like to thank our dedicated and experienced Sorensen site team that worked hard to deliver this project throughout some difficult weather conditions earlier this year.

Construction Safety Week 2022

It has been a very busy few weeks on the Safety front at Sorensen with our site teams getting to grips with the six themes of Construction Safety Week 2022 which has been rolled out throughout the month of October.

The Themes are:

🔸 Lighthouse Club’s Help Inside a Hart Hat Campaign

🔸 Safe Access & Egress

🔸 Safe Working at Height

🔸 Safe Control of Hazardous Energies

🔸 Safety by Example

🔸 Safe Use of Mobile Equipment

To coincide with Construction Safety Week, a Sorensen ‘Thumbs Up’ campaign is being rolled out across all our projects. Giving the plant operator a thumbs up takes no effort but can have life-saving consequences for those on site. This campaign forms part of our ‘Zero Risk’ Policy, which is a behavioural safety concept designed to change the mindset of all personnel on site to ensure that “everyone goes home safely”.

The Sorensen site teams must be commended for their positive and collaborative approach to the Construction Safety Week across all our projects. Keep up the good work!

 

 

New Project Announcement: Dingle FHC East Basin Passenger Pontoon

Sorensen has recently commenced works on the Dingle FHC East Basin Passenger Pontoon on behalf of our client, the Department of Agriculture Food and Marine.

The project involves replacing an existing pontoon and gangway system with a new piled system providing greater capacity for berthing and passengers. The piling works have commenced this week with the support of our partners at Quinn Piling and Ocean Crest Marine.

Dingle FHC is an active fisheries, leisure and tourism harbour, and we look forward to delivering this important project for the area.

Kieran O’ Brien’s 20 Years of Service

Sorensen MD John Wallace was delighted to make a presentation to Kieran O’Brien to mark his 20 years of service with Sorensen. Kieran is an experienced foreman with Sorensen and is a valued member of our management team. We’d like to thank him sincerely for his hard work, dedication and loyalty to the company over the last 20 years. There has been considerable change during Kieran’s 20 years with the company, not to mention some ups and downs associated with the Celtic Tiger era and the global recession. We hope that Kieran’s next 20 years are as eventful and fulfilling as his last 20 years working with Sorensen.
