Established in 1974, Roughan & O’Donovan is one of Ireland’s leading civil engineering design consultancies. We are fully owned by the directors and technical directors of the company and this independence affords us the freedom to invest in long-term relationships with our clients. Each project is directly led by one of the owner directors to ensure focus on delivering our clients’ objectives. We provide engineering services throughout the full life-cycle of infrastructure assets, from conception through to asset management. Our reputation for design innovation and design excellence is well established and is reflected in industry awards.
Design innovation is assisted by our longstanding relationships and collaborations with research organizations, including all the primary universities in Ireland, and through our work in developing design standards for government agencies and departments. We consider our people to be our principal asset and our continuing development programme is accredited by Engineers Ireland. We operate an integrated management system accredited by NSAI to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001.
ROD-IS, a subsidiary company established in 2009, specialises in providing complex and innovative solutions to international public and private clients.

“Presentation INTERLINK project as an example on GEO| Design+BIM 2018 by Royal HaskoningDHV, from 1 - 2 November 2018 inn AMSTERDAM CITY, The Netherlands, THEME: “Enabling tomorrow’s Connected Infrastructure.”
Understanding the relevance and importance of bringing the geospatial analytics, spatial planning, architecture, engineering, and construction and operation/maintenance professionals together on one platform, the integrated event will once again convene in Amsterdam from 1-2 November 2018.
Aim is to enhance the information management and information loss at stage-transitions during the life-cycle of a project. NL-engineers see similar issues using Systems Engineering at Asset Management and want to enhance interoperability and information management in the sector together with the stakeholders in a so-called Market-vision meeting. Daan Alsem, projectmanager from Royal HaskoningDHV, present the CEDR-INTERLINK approach using BIM and the existing open BIM standards at Asset Information Management with Linked Data and Semantic Web technology.
IALCCE 2018, The Sixth International Symposium on LIfe-Cycle Civil Engineering.
In our contemporary high-level society, civil engineering structures are expected to be designed to meet long-term requirements related to structural safety, robustness, serviceability, durability and sustainability. Life-cycle civil engineering provides the knowledge and tools to accommodate for these requirements and relates to the design, inspection, monitoring, assessment, maintenance and rehabilitation of structures and infrastructures taking into account their lifetime perspective.
The last decades there is a growing awareness of the importance of a life-cycle perspective in civil engineering and challenges exist to tackle the contemporary needs, for example related to the long-term prediction of material behaviour and structural response, the assessment of existing structures, inspection and maintenance strategies, life-cycle optimization, etc. Considering these needs, the objective of the International Association for Life-Cycle Civil Engineering (IALCCE) is to promote international cooperation in this field of expertise.
