Carrickfergus Public Realm


Regeneration of an out-dated promenade on both sides of the historic Carrickfergus Castle. The long narrow site, bounded on one side by Belfast Lough and on the other by a busy public road, meant that works required a careful programme to manage health and safety. Part of the service involved surveying the harbour walls prior to the work to determine whether structural repairs were required.

Works involved replacing the existing concrete-flagged surface with Caithness Granite Slabs laid on a new bitumen macadam base; associated kerbing works and new stainless steel railings. A detailed site investigation was undertaken to determine sub soil conditions and allow the design and detailing for the new surface. The new surface was laid on a concrete base designed to withstand occasional vehicular traffic that could arise accidentally or for maintenance purposes.

New street furniture including lighting, seating and railings were designed and incorporated. New drainage was also installed.
