In 2020, we became the first homebuilder in Ireland to utilise a new engineering solution “Rapid Impact Compaction”, a process of localised soil stabilisation which significantly reduces the scale of soil treatment on site and almost fully eliminates the export off-site of excavated soil and the import of quarried aggregates
At Archer’s Wood, Delgany alone:
- 7,000 HGV journeys to and from site carrying 120,000 tonnes of material would have been needed without this technology
- Significant reduction in Scope 2 carbon emissions
- No waste product generated
We continue to find ways of improving the efficiency of product delivery through the use of innovative modern methods of construction and other initiatives, and look forward to introducing and announcing new initiatives over the coming months.
