The project will comprise of five stages, as set out below:
Stage I – Options Assessment, Scheme Development and Design
- Carry out the review and assessment of the technical analysis and preferred measures identified in the Shannon CFRAM Study Reports and the FRMP for Unit of Management 24.
- Hydrological and hydraulic modelling.
- Geotechnical Assessment
- Identification and undertaking of baseline environmental surveys.
- Carrying out a Constraints Study to identify the key environmental issues in the study area, which may be impacted upon by possible flood alleviation measures, and/or which may impose constraints on the viability and/or design of one or more measures.
- Assessment of potential flood risk management options to alleviate the risk of flooding to the community of Adare.
- Selection, development and design of a preferred option (the ‘Scheme’).
- Preparation of an initial Appropriate Assessment Screening Statement, Natura Impact Statement and Environmental Impact Assessment Reports.
Stage II – Planning/Development Consent Processes
- Preparation of documentation required to progress the Scheme through the necessary planning and other statutory processes.
Stage III – Detailed Construction Design and Tender
- Undertake and complete the detailed construction design of the Scheme.
- Preparation of contract documents and undertaking the procurement of the works contractor to construct the Scheme.
Stage IV – Construction Supervision & Project Management Service
- Supervision of the construction of the Scheme, and provision of Project Management Services.
Stage V – Handover of Works
- An outline programme is shown below for the Adare Flood Relief Scheme, which is the current best estimate. This is subject to change as the Project progresses.
