Commenting on the news, ROD’s Tony Dempsey said: 

It is always an honour to be shortlisted for an Engineers Ireland Excellence Award, so to have been nominated in two categories this year is really exciting for us!  

The Northern Spire Bridge is a testament to the exceptional level of application, innovation and achievement demonstrated by the project team comprising ROD, Buro Happold, Farrans and Victor Buyck
