Giving back to the Community: Sorensen Visit to Glanmire Community College

Giving back to the Community: As part of our community liaison work on our Glashaboy Flood Relief Scheme in Glanmire, members of our site team, accompanied by Ken Leahy of Arup, provided a presentation on the design, construction and ecology aspects of the project to the 2nd year students at Glanmire Community College.

Sorensen’s ecologist, Sorcha Dale spoke about the ecological elements on the project, our liaison officer, Elaine Cronin gave the students an insight into the importance of collaboration with the community and stake holders, and Ken Leahy gave a fascinating account of the design process on this complex flood relief project.

We received a warm welcome from the students and teachers during our visit and would like to thank the school for their hospitality and all the students for taking part. A special mention goes to Josh, Damien, Justin, Lucie, Clodagh, Lauren and Jack. Thank you to the school principal, Ronan McCarthy.

Works are progressing well on the flood relief scheme, which we are delivering on behalf of our client Cork City Council – Comhairle Cathrach Chorcaí.
