Abergeldie has been awarded its first project in Europe, to renovate historic Killeavy Castle and build a 42 room, 4 star, boutique hotel, spa and wellness centre adjacent to it. The Killeavy Castle, in County Armagh, sits majestically on the slopes of Slieve Gullion and is the centrepiece of an historic estate comprising 350 acres of farmland and woods. The hotel and wellness centre will be built on the site of what once were the Killeavy Castle coach house, mill and farm buildings, and will sympathetically incorporate many of their historic features.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

The project comprised a walking trail from the car parks, across the existing walking bridge, along the south side of Cotter River, rising to a viewing platform above the heritage-listed Cotter Trout Hatchery. The viewing platform is 350m SE of the new ECD wall and 450m from the existing dam wall.

Complex Challenges:

Tight access required precision installation of the platform and a 2 meter wide prefabricated looped concrete tread boardwalk with steel balustrade. Both the boardwalk and platform display information about the ECD project and the story of water delivery in Canberra.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

For Mackay City Council as a means to improve community well-being and recreational opportunities, Abergeldie constructed 1km of raised boardwalk above environmentally sensitive wetlands and a 30m bridge over Alligator Creek. The scope also included installation of 1.2km of footpath, fencing, landscaping, street lighting, furniture and a car park.

Complex Challenges:

Working in sensitive, tidal wetlands required careful planning and implementation of environmental controls and work methods. The salt marsh and stands of mature mangroves are important environmental assets.
