‘STEPS to Engineering’ Visit to Our Lady of Lourdes Primary School

As part of our commitment to the Engineers Ireland ‘STEPS to Engineering’ programme, Sorensen Contracts Manager, Paraic McCarthy gave a presentation to the 4th class students at Our Lady of Lourdes Primary School, Limerick City.
We received a warm welcome from the students and teachers during our visit, where we covered topics such as road construction, interesting Civil Engineering projects, and the civil engineering industry in general.
We would like to thank the school for their hospitality and all the pupils for taking part. Hopefully we have inspired some of the pupils to choose Civil Engineering as a career!

Opening of N72 Ballymaquirk Junction Upgrade Scheme

Cllr. Bernard Moynihan officially opened the Ballymaquirk Junction Upgrade Scheme on Friday, 17th November.

The project was a safety initiative by Cork County Council and Transport Infrastructure Ireland that consisted of replacing the existing four-cross-roads on the N72/R579 Ballymaquirk Junction, with a new on-line roundabout. There were also realignment works on all the existing approach roads as well as drainage, utilities, fencing, traffic management and associated ancillary works. We’re delighted to see that the new roundabout is providing a much safer passage through this busy road junction for the people of Banteer and the wider north Cork area.

We’d like to thank our dedicated and experienced Sorensen site team that worked extremely hard, in collaboration with the Cork County Council RDO site team, to deliver this project ahead of programme through very challenging site conditions.
