Some 'experts' here talking through their backsides.
The concrete has been munched and broken down in to small amounts for reuse rather than sending to a landfill. Demolition waste untreated is some of the worst stuff you can have as you cant build on it.
I suspect its being used on a project which may be on a tight budget. not more than 300m away. That material is virtually free ( munching is cheaper than tipping).
So for example the event centre will have free material instead of fill at 30-40 euro per m3. Might help to get it built.

Indeed. Munched inert rubble of uniform size could be used as hardcore

it can't be used as hardcore under any structural elements as it does not come with lab certs etc required for BCAR. You could only use it as fill in recreation areas etc

I think that it's the best proposal since the crash. A 220 bed Marriott will do a lot more for the city than a kids park....

I'd like to see Sullivan's Quay school leveled, a grim building where children suffered.

BCAR is a load of bollix.

Agree though that if cant be guaranteed then it should be used outside or in a carpark or something.

If we levelled every building where people suffered we would have no cork city gaol, Elizabeth fort, Spike Island, the old asylum and pretty much every school over a certain age.
The buildings don't hurt people, people hurt people.

BCAR is mandatory for a commercial building whether you like out or not and is here to stay!

You couldn't use it in a car park either! Only under areas with no structural requirements
