Parkunload – Managing EV Charging Spaces on Campus https://ucdestates.ie/blog/2019/10/08/parkunload-managing-ev-charging-spaces-on-campus/ Tue, 08 Oct 2019 10:32:06 +0000 https://ucdestates.ie/?p=4869 October - November 2019 Summary:

UCD Estate Services are pleased to announce we are working with Parkunload on a trial basis to investigate ways we can better manage access to and use of electric vehicle charging spaces on campus.

As part of the trial, we have placed new smart signage in three EV charging locations on the Belfield campus:

Ashfield Car Park (Car Park O11) Tierney Car Park (Car Park N4) Sutherland Car Park (Car Park O3)

The service works by downloading the Parkunload app from the Google or Apple stores. Users quickly register their car details and can use the app to display available spaces prior to parking or entering campus. Once parked in the EV space open the app; using the smart signage in place the app will automatically detect the area you are parked in and will show you the maximum allowed parking time.

Construction Works on UCD Upper Lake https://ucdestates.ie/blog/2019/07/16/construction-works-on-ucd-upper-lake/ Tue, 16 Jul 2019 13:36:32 +0000 https://ucdestates.ie/?p=4713 Service Update Date:15 July - 31 August 2019 Summary:

❖ What is happening? As part of the Student Residence Phase 1 project, a new Rainwater Drainage connection to the lake is currently being installed. The lake has been designed primarily as a water attenuation feature as well as a significant campus amenity which allows rainwater to drain into it before allowing the water to drain away in a controlled manner helping to prevent flooding and risk to habitats further downstream. The rainwater pipeline is connected to a headwall outlet which is being installed in the eastern edge of the lake. A petrol interceptor will also be installed to ensure the water entering the lake is filtered and clean. A petrol interceptor is a trap used to filter out hydrocarbon pollutants from rainwater runoff.

❖ What about the wildlife? Two ecologists have surveyed the area and presented a report which stipulates best practice construction measures to be implemented by the contractor and sub-contractors during the construction works to prevent any impact or potential risks to ecological features of the lake. Water quality will be monitored before, during and after the works. There will also be ongoing and regular ecology inspections and monitoring carried out throughout the works.

❖ When will the works start and when will it be finished? It is anticipated that the works will start from the 16th of July completing by Friday the 30th of August. These dates have been chosen to minimise the disruption and to substantially finish the works before the start of the term.
