TOBIN’s Civil I Design Build I Water (CDBW) Division incorporates a specialist team of professionals responsible for our Public Realm and Urban Regeneration work. This Public Realm Team covers a broad range of project types from large scale assignments (overhauls of entire town centres) to smaller undertakings for specific streets, laneways and public facilities (essentially any urban spaces that could be accessed by the public).
The services that we provide in this specialist area (design, project/cost management, Employer’s Rep’ and PSDP) take both the culture and the history of the town or urban setting into account while progressing the given space to promote accessibility, utilisation and aesthetics.
Galway City Centre Enhancement Scheme
Galway City Council, as the Authority responsible for the upkeep of Galway City’s public infrastructure, undertook a project for the overall regeneration of Galway City Centre’s public realm. The scheme was required to rejuvenate and upgrade this primary retail and tourism destination. The project works have dramatically improved both pedestrian and vehicular movement, enhancing shoppers, visitors, and the business community’s experience of Galway City.
Shop Street was primarily identified as requiring priority repairs and remediation as vehicle damage associated with goods deliveries had taken their toll on the pavement.
