James Joyce Bridge - King and Moffatt

James Joyce Bridge

Project: James Joyce Bridge

Location: Dublin, Co. Dublin

Client: Dublin City Corporation

Sector: Public

Due to the nature of the structure King & Moffatt had to work very closely with the design team during the installation process to ensure that all Electrical components were installed in such a way that they did not interfere with appearance of the Bridge. This involved meeting with the bridge manufacturers (Harland & Wolfe) at their facility in Belfast, to design the cable routes and ensure that the correct housings were in place for the lights to allow the correct visual effect.

To facilitate the main contractor we also had to design the stainless steel housing for the lights along the road section of the bridge, these were installed in such a way that maintenance could be carried out with ease for the end user.

As the electrical installation was carried out after the bridge was put in place (spanning across the river Liffey) Health & Safety was a very important factor. This project was completed to the Main Contractors satisfaction and within budget.
