AECOM’s Development and Building Engineering teams are the main providers of traffic, transportation, infrastructure and structural design advice to McDonald’s Restaurants of Ireland (MRIL) for all projects throughout the Republic of Ireland.

As part of the Dublin Airport project we provided engineering services for the development of a restaurant and associated drive-thru facility. Located at Dublin Airport, MRIL commissioned a two-story building, which was to provide a flagship building status at this key location.

Our Development and Building Engineering team’s experience and expertise was of benefit to MRIL throughout this project owing to the constrained nature of the site within the lands owned by the Dublin Airport Authority (DAA). The requirement to design and construct a new building and  associated underground infrastructure while ensuring that critical DAA infrastructure remained untouched was a particular challenge to our engineers. The necessity to protect and retain this existing infrastructure required excellent communication between AECOM, McDonald’s, the Architect, the Contractor and the DAA.

AECOM took the project through planning stage to detailed design stage, coordinated the bidding process, liaised with Site Investigation subcontractors, and provided engineering consulting support during the construction stage.

AECOM’s ability to provide a multidiscipline service ensured a successful on-time delivery of this project from its initial inception, through the stringent planning process and ultimately through the construction stage.
