Dublin City Council has appointed Roughan & O'Donovan to design a suite of remedial measures for Spencer Bridge in Dublin's north docklands.  

Built between 1939 and 1941, this balance beam bascule bridge carries Upper Sheriff Street over the Royal Canal at Spencer Dock.

Proposed restoration works include repainting, replacement of damaged and corroded members and the provision of anti-climb measures for the overhead gantry structure. 

In order to establish an accurate basis for design, Roughan & O'Donovan commissioned a 3-D point cloud survey of the structure using drone technology. And, as part of their ongoing adoption of BIM processes, an annotated 3-D model was prepared to describe the works requirements.

Spencer Bridge represents the latest addition to Roughan & O'Donovan's impressive portfolio of north docklands projects, which includes Samuel Beckett Bridge, New Street North Lotts, and the Royal Canal Cycleway.
