Client: Electrical Supply Company
This project involved the release of water from two dams in southern Ireland resulting in flooding of property downstream.
WJM&P were engaged by the Electrical Supply Company’s legal department to advise on engineering matters relating to the flooding. In particular, we were asked to consider whether the buildings affected had been designed properly to resist the effects of flooding. Our investigation included a review of historic and modern guidance on flood protection and how that guidance had been applied to the affected buildings.
The dispute was resolved at trail in the High Court in Dublin, at which we acted as civil and structural engineering Expert Witness.
