Limerick’s Project Opera Site Reuses and Recycles Rubble

Over 1,000 tonnes of stone, brick, cobblestone, old doorways and gates have been salvaged during the enabling works contract of the Project Opera site in Limerick.

Every effort has been made to recycle and reuse the construction rubble at the city centre site. Cogent Associates managed the demolition and site clearance process, with sustainability and recycling central to the employers’ requirements, whilst picking up LEED points to enhance the LEED scoring at a later phase. It has been an innovative and exciting phase of the project, engaging with the various stakeholders and putting into practice the principles of a circular economy.

Cogent is overseeing a range of Integrated Project Management services under a single appointment on the Limerick Opera site. The 3.7 acre “mixed-use” development remains on course to be delivered over a six-year period.
