Geology has given Ireland a perfect profile for land reclamation
projects such as the Dublin Coastal Development. The continental
shelf on which the British Isles sits ensures shallow waters. The
sea levels are further decreased by sedimentary build up within Dublin
bay. In addition to this, the longevity and maintenance of the artificial
structures is greatly enhanced by the negligible seismic activity
and the sheltered aspect of the proposed construction site.
