Re: Re: University of Limerick
I took a spherical panorama at the college this morning that gives a pretty good idea of the impact of the flooding.
AerialPhoto, it would be an understatement to say the least that your superb 360Â° panoramas will be of keen interest to the University Campus Planners! 😎
Your images of the Clare campus side reveal the extent of the flood plain around the Thomond Student Village. Or should I say either side of the Canal / River Blackwater as it meets the Shannon.
The topography of the site provided unique opportunities for the project to interact with the waterways and take advantage of the stunning views surrounding the site.
As the site is prone to occasional flooding it has been raised approximately 2m above the existing ground level. Only the land required for the Student Village was raised to create promontories and thus preserve the seasonal nature of the landscape.
Murray Oâ€™Laoireâ€™s Student Village concept seems to have worked here though I heard that there were problems in general with sewage on the Clare campus side?
