Duke McCaffrey have had a successful run of project wins throughout the last year across a variety of sectors, significantly strengthening our experience in the Third Level Education and Health sectors.
Recent wins in the Education Sector include projects at IT Carlow, a 1,400m2 refurbishment project at the PJ Carroll’s Facility Building in Dundalk Institute of Technology, the leading higher education institute of the North Leinster South Ulster Region.
We are also currently working on a number of projects for Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology to include the retrofit of their Centre for the Creative Arts & Media Campus on Monivea Road in Galway City. Using a high temperature heating pump, we replaced the existing oil-fired heating system under the EEDPP (Energy Efficient and De-carbonisation Pathfinder Program), in two phases and we are also involved in the conversion project in their Room 509. Two more wins in this sector were for the FOCAS Research Institute at Technological University Dublin, at Grangegorman, and a new 600 pupil Primary School in Kerry.
Mayo General Hospital New Emergency Department Extension and Medical Admissions Unit was a win for us in the Health Sector along with the HSE Decarbonisation Pilot Pathfinder Programme for the Dublin North East Region. We have further extended our hotel sector experience with the 280-bedroom hotel development at Arran Street in the up and coming Fruit Market area of Dublin city. The project involved the construction of the new hotel and basement below ground level which was a challenging project on a relatively restricted site. The construction of this seven-storey building and complex façade treatment, and landscape on the building, will result in a top-class brand hotel.
2021 was a busy year where we were successfully added to Public Sector frameworks such as Carlow County Council, Bus Eireann, An Post, The Office of Government Procurement and the Restoration of Glasshouses and related Built Structures framework for Fingal County Council.
