The contract was split to allow the continuation of the design process during the demolition and enabling works. Contract A included the demolition of the old National College of Art and Design buildings, service diversions, relocation of car parking on Leinster Lawn plus piling and temporary works. An opening was formed in the 7m high historic curved stone wall between the site and Leinster Lawn to give a main site access route onto Merrion Square. A temporary façade retention system was erected to provide additional support to the curved wall during the contract period. The significant part of the Contract A works was the installation of a secant piled wall (600mm diameter) tight to the historic buildings and curved wall surrounding the site. Over 215 linear metres of piling was completed in 7 weeks.
