project description:

The excellence in the design of the repair and rehabilitation of Daly’s (Shakey) Bridge has resulted in one of Cork’s most iconic structures being restored for future generations to use and enjoy. RPS successfully utilised analytical structural models and physical accelerometer measurements to record and monitor the natural frequency and vibration response of the bridge prior to and following repair works, to ensure the signature ‘shake’ was retained. Appropriate conservation principles were applied within significant site and other constraints. The project is a real testament to the power of engineering to lift the human spirit.
