South Kerry Greenway

Sorensen recently completed a trial section of the South Kerry Greenway located at Mountain Stage Viewpoint, Ring of Kerry, Co Kerry. This greenway will be among the most impressive and spectacular greenways in Europe when it is complete.

The works delivered by Sorensen included:
Site Clearance
Raking down and preparing existing rock faces
Installation of rock anchors and retaining mesh for slope stabilisation
Extensive shotcrete works
Retaining wall foundations
Gabion basket retaining walls
Installation of new drainage systems
Construction of Greenway substructure layers
Landscaping and finishing works

We wish to thank the local community and the road-users for their cooperation and patience during the works. Thank you to our client Kerry County Council, the designer MWP and the funding body Transport Infrastructure Ireland, for their support and collaboration throughout the project. Well done to the Sorensen project team for their efforts in delivering this project safely and on time.


Smooth Point Pier Extension Project Completion

Sorensen recently completed the Smooth Point Pier Extension project at Killybegs Fishery Harbour Centre, which we delivered on behalf of our client, the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine.

The project involved the completion of a new 120m long quay development at Smooth Point, aiming to alleviate congestion during the peak fishing season. The works also included dredging in excess of 10,000 cubic metres of rock from the bed of the harbour.

Well done to the site team for co-ordinating the works safely in a very restricted and challenging works area. Thank you to the Employer’s Representative and Designer, Doran Consulting Engineers for the collaboration on this project.

Sorensen wishes to sincerely thank the Killybegs community for their cooperation during the works.
